The debate outcome may keep in Romney on Ohio TV 7 to 10 days longer (before the debate there were threads on Free Republic that Romney was probably going to "pull out" of Ohio towards the end of next week. If/When Romney pulls out of Ohio this election is OVER) but, based on today's jobless report I anticipate Obama regaining his pre-debate lead about the time of the second debate.
You really think a 7.8% unemployment rate is going to win hearts and minds? The rate with the same employment participation as 2008 would be over 11% (but, thankfully, we have a lot more people on disability and unemployment so they're not counted).
Funny how 8 years ago the Dems were bemoaning Bush because the rate wasn't below 5%, but now being at 7.8% is just mutherfuggin' great news!
