Romney Gains Ground on Obama after Strong Debate

US Presidential Debate 2012

Yesterday was the US presidential debate,this is when the two remaining candidates square off in front of a political judge.The mainly is the reason of facilitating the easy voting for the public in the last stage of the elections.
Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney gained ground on Democratic President Barack Obama after a strong performance in their first debate heading into the November 6 election, according to a Reuters poll taken after their prime-time face-off.

Romney is now viewed positively by 51 percent of voters, the first time he has enjoyed a net positive in the U.S. presidential race, the poll found. Obama's favorability rating remained unchanged at 56 percent, according 
Romney moved ahead of the president on several core issues after Wednesday's debate, which was widely seen as a victory for the Republican candidate.

Voters now see Romney as a better bet to boost the economy, spur job creation and manage the budget deficit, the poll found. He narrowed Obama's advantage on taxes, the Social Security retirement program and the Medicare health insurance program for the elderly and disabled.

Obama and Romney have two more debates before the election.

The poll found that Obama's 7 percentage point advantage over Romney had narrowed to a lead of 5 percentage points, 48 percent to 43 percent.
If Mr Barack Obama was under the illusion he didn't have a fight on his hands to win the 2012 United States election, then he received a rude awakening on Wednesday night as Mr Mitt Romney scrapped his way back into the race just at the point when many had counted him out.

From the very first answer of this 90-minute debate in Denver, Colorado, Mr Romney took command of an occasion that pundits and public alike had largely presumed Mr Obama would win. As it turned out on the night, they were wrong.

Given two minutes to set out their recipe for creating jobs, Mr Obama went straight to the numbers, wheeling out his favourite statistic that "over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created".

It was Mr Romney, however, who took a leaf out of Mr Obama's own playbook, neatly personalising the issue after landing the only laugh of the night by joshing with the President over how "romantic" it must be to spend his 20th wedding anniversary on stage with him.

He spoke of a woman from Ohio who recently "grabbed my arm, and she said, I've been out of work since May. Can you help me?" and then answered his own question, setting out a five-point jobs plan to restore "vitality" to America.

And it was vitality that was in short supply for Mr Obama last night. He will have infuriated his supporters with a strangely stilted, passive performance, searching for his own lines, and then refusing to make eye contact with Mr Romney when it was his opponent's turn to speak.

No doubt that was intended to diminish Mr Romney, but it served to keep Mr Obama firmly on the touchlines of a match-up where the President seemed determined never to get his knees dirty.
