Two good signs for Romney

Yesterday I reported that the seven-day rolling national Gallup average, which had shown Romney ahead by either six or seven points over the previous six days, now showed him just three points ahead, suggesting that his momentum had stalled or reversed after the third debate. Today, linked at Drudge, Romney is now back up to a five-point lead in the rolling Gallup average.

In another good sign for Romney, Rasmussen today shows him tied with Obama in Wisconsin. Romney has been consistently behind in Wisconsin in the RCP average, and Rasmussen’s previous two Wisconsin polls had shown him two points behind. This new Rasmussen finding is significant because Wisconsin is one of the Toss Up states where things have not looked promising for Romney. As I pointed out in a comment yesterday, I did not see a readily apparent path for him to win enough of the Toss Ups to get to 270 electoral votes. But if Wisconsin with its ten electoral votes now has a reasonable chance of going Romney, that would bring him much closer to 270.
