Remember when the Dems ran ads with Ryan pushing a grandmother in a wheelchair off a cliff? Well, Romney can push Obama off a cliff tonight with the second debate. The polls are already showing a big shift to Romney:
1. Gallup's tracking poll of likely voters has Romney up four points today.
2. Rasmussen has Romney up 2 points.
3. Other recent polls are showing Obama leading or the race tied only because they are skewing hard to Democrats, an unreasonable expectation for turnout in November: Washington Post (D+9 with Obama up three) and IBD/TIPP (D+7 with the race tied). If turnout is evenly split, these polls would show Romney with significant leads.
Expect Democratic panic if Obama does poorly again. And I mean raging, in the streets, pull out all the stops, wag the dog panic.
