Poll shows Obama widens his Michigan lead after debate

President Barack Obama’s improved performance in Tuesday’s debate with Republican rival Mitt Romney appears to have boosted him to a wider lead among likely Michigan voters, a Detroit Free Press/WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) poll shows.

When counting undecided voters leaning toward either candidate, Obama, the Democrat, held a 52%-46% edge on Romney in an automated poll of 800 likely Michigan voters on Wednesday, a day after the men met in New York for the second of three debates.

Almost half — 46% — thought Obama won the most recent debate, compared to 35% who thought Romney won. Eleven percent called the debate a tie and 8% were undecided. A poll after the first debate showed voters overwhelmingly gave Romney the advantage.

2. Yes

This should also be reflected in much of Northern Ohio.

3. Romney is losing his home state AND the state where he was Governor

Wake up, America. Who knows him better?

4. What's most amazing about Obama's lead is...

Romney and super PACs have been on TV in Michigan, trashing Obama for nearly a year - yet there has been almost no advertising by Obama.

Obama's campaign is all ground game here in Michigan, no TV.

Gives me hope for democracy!
