    Mitt Romney's strong performance in the first presidential debate may have put Pennsylvania back in play, and closed the gap with President Obama in other battleground states.

    A Siena Research Institute Poll on Tuesday showed the Republican nominee trailing Mr. Obama by only three percentage points, 43 percent to 40 percent, in the Keystone State. Other polls prior to the debate had shown Mr. Obama with as much as a 12-point lead.

    "Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes suddenly appear to be up for grabs," said poll director Don Levy. "Romney not only has Republican support but now leads in vote-rich areas outside of Philadelphia and also in the central part of the state. With a month and two more debates to go, Pennsylvania's direction on the road to the White House remains in doubt."

    The Siena survey found 12 percent of the state's voters undecided. The poll was conducted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 5; the debate took place on Oct. 3.

    Meanwhile, the Republican also received a post-debate boost in Wisconsin, where a PPP survey found that Mr. Romney now trails the president by just two percentage points, 49 percent to 47 percent. Two weeks ago Mr. Romney trailed Mr. Obama by seven points there.

    Very good news. With a couple more strong debate showings this could very well become a land slide. I haven't seen a single poll since the debate that had any good news for Obama.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I'm taking credit for this. An hour a night for the last three weeks I have been banging out calls for Romney. Actually, anyone in any state can do it. If you are in Ohio or Florida I encourage you to sign up and make some calls. You can do it from home. Folks have been generally genteel. The worst I've heard was from an elderly woman that hollered at me because I called when she was watching golf.

    Anyone that says they are supporting 0bama, I just lay a Jedi mind trick on them and it's all good.

    I think Romney is going to take PA. At least I am praying that he does. That would be sweet. I am sick of my state going for the socialist idiots.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    How could an older woman possibly stay awake watching gulf?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I think it was Sunday afternoon. Ryder Cup maybe? I don't know. But she was a hollerin'.

    I'd go all Bouncy and say it's going Romney's way but the system decides who to call and it's been calling northeast PA mostly so I'd expect that area to be pro-Romney.
