Chuck Todd: Let's Face it, This Race Has Structurally Shifted Towards Romney

True that. But it is frustrating how such a tremendous failure like Obama has any more than 30% in the polls. Do these people just overlook Fast and Furious, Libya, and Solyndra?!?!?! And they dislike Romney because he is a "rich guy." I was hoping to get at least one lib to really "think" about why they like Obama, but I think you are right. They are just kool-aid drinkers and there's not much you can do to get them to really think about why they support the big zero.

Following Mitt Romney's decisive Denver debate victory, the salient question was whether the resulting polling surge represented a fleeting bounce or a lasting movement.  NBC's Chuck Todd examines the data and announces his determination:
 


 

"I feel like there's been this structural shift. We're not longer in this 'it's even, but the president has these advantages.'  The 'but the president has these advantages' in the battleground states I think is gone."  


Todd's analysis...
