Poll: Voters believe Obama will win debates
October 1. 2012 - Voters believe President Obama will win the upcoming debates with Mitt Romney, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released two days before the first face-to-face match up.
Obama and Romney will debate Wednesday at the University of Denver. Both sides have been working to lower expectations for the face-offs, which will be viewed by millions of people this month.
Registered voters by 2 to 1, or 56% to 29%, believe Obama will prevail over Romney in the debates, the ABC/Washington Post poll finds.
The presidential race itself, however, remains too close to call: Obama leads Romney by 2 percentage points among likely voters across the nation, according to the survey.
It's what I thought would be the case though.
Sounds like a self-fulfilling prophecy
No, this is quite the opposite. High expectations are your enemy in the debates. This is good news for Romeny. He still has to deliver, but he can (continue) to gain ground. Obama can only lose ground.
Would you consider *any* turn of events bad news for Romney? The trend around here is to spin anything in Romney's favor.
