Voters overwhelmingly believe Obama will win the debates

quote:

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.

That's bad news for him.

Could be.

It's what I thought would be the case though.

They are just downplaying Obama's expectations

You did tell me that about a week back. I argued that Romney had turned in some strong performances during the primaries, but you reminded me that no one besides us watches that shite.

Oh well. Obama's a pretty good debater, but nothing special. He better hope that Mitt fricks up.

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.

Obama could respond to every question like "Butthead" and the MSM would still declare him the "winner."

Would you consider *any* turn of events bad news for Romney? The trend around here is to spin anything and everything in Romney's favor.

If candidates didn't want to keep debate expectations low then why was Obama out claiming that Romney has had a lot more time at debate prep and that he is a great debater while Obama is just ok? Same for Romney saying that Obama is a great speaker and that he has had more debate practice than Romney.

Shocking that they would say this.

The next thing you will be telling me is that these same outlets declare Obama won the debate.......even if it appears otherwise.

No, if Romney wins the debate they will declare "it was really close, probably a tie."
