Romney +1 in Ohio — American Research Group

The post-debate surge carries over into Ohio where American research group find Mitt Romney narrowly leading President Obama by 1-point, 48 to 47.  The party ID in the survey was D +9 (Dem 42, Rep 33, Ind 25) which compares to 2008 of D +8 (Dem 39, Rep 31, Ind 30) and in 2004 it was R +5 (Dem 35, Rep 40, Ind 25).  So a better turnout than 2008 at Obama’s peak of enthusiasm versus an unarmed opponent and yet Obama still trails by 1-point.  Holy-moly that debate was bad.  Why on earth is the Obama campaign still talking about it?
