All here is -- number most debate watchers have been waiting for.
Gala shows that some historical results developed after Americans watched the last -- days -- Wednesday's presidential debate.
Gave it to governor Romney only 20%.
Of those who -- thought the president did a better job.
Romney's 52 point when is the largest Gallup has ever measured after -- presidential debate.
Mean if you look at the latest reading from real clear politics this is an average of all political polls.
It puts Mitt Romney in a dead heat with President Obama in the race for the White House put to make of that and so much more -- -- -- the -- -- with us.
Of course -- used to advise President Clinton John is a former Republican congressman from New York.
-- to you first.
How does Romney maintain.
This momentum and in this revival.
We'll -- this is a challenge it's a revival it's not in any way.
Alteration in a race that -- -- always been close it's closer still but he's not in the lead he needs to outline clearly.
Where he's gonna take America what his vision is and how most importantly -- in.
His agenda will impact and improve the lives of ordinary America.
What about the endless focus short run and what about the vice presidential debate.
Does it conveyed it more about gaining -- at this point in that debate and led to the remaining two presidential race huh.
-- why not making a mistake life.
Think that if I'm wrong I am I'm gonna try to -- Biden.
Who I think is go to -- in the making a mistake get a mad get him off the script there really preparing Biden very heavily for the -- And I would try to make some news to reinforce the feeling.
That maybe Obama and Biden are two empty suits who really aren't.
Up to the job after all I think that's lingering a little left at first debate.
Ryan should try to shake things up and go after Obama's record -- Doug what about that did.
Getting because you talked about the well how Romney needs to present himself and how -- used to portray himself.
How do you do that.
Good one of the criticism of the Romney campaign has been how they're spending their money and advertising they've been doing which has been lackluster zillow -- Your your point -- getting into one of the areas I think John and I both feel they can improve.
I think they need to ads that speak directly to what I was saying before and what John's been talking about both here and elsewhere which is.
How the Romney plan.
Reducing taxes regulation.
Cutting spending will result in a better America and -- better life for of the American people.
Yet taken if you were to go get an interview for a job and any business you would not go in there and sit during the interview trashing.
The guy that had the job before you you would try to sell.
Your potential boss.
Here's what I bring to the table what I would ditto if you hire me to this job that's the same thing when -- running for office yet both these guys.
Maybe they never interviewed for a job -- -- -- but they just want to trash the other guy.
And we had not eighty minutes of Mitt Romney being mostly positive about what he would -- he shot up in the polls as a result he should.
Make all -- commercials that way and the next two debates the same time they let Obama faster in his own problem.
Net and then is there is president -- -- in a tough situation about talking that way about himself in the next day because this record of the last well that's again very good question very good.
-- the Obama campaign believes something that arguably has some.
Truth to it which is that when they go harshly negative notwithstanding what John said he goes up in the polls and the governor comes down.
So they've already begun the Mitt Romney is a liar -- -- -- -- and I think the president will be more engaged arguably more negative simply because.
They're prepared to win as is said.
We an ugly if they need to this I don't think they have an agenda or -- record they can run on hence they're really just try to demonize governor Romney.
In terms of the numbers that are coming out let's talk real quickly about the unemployment rate they came out on Friday we saw have played out over the weekend -- Expected.
But is that the thing that they ought to be focusing on M.
Obama administration but how -- -- and we know from Scott -- most of -- suspect it's -- consumer confidence over the weekend shot up and -- The president's ratings have gone up over -- since yesterday they've gone up because of that jobs number.
Debt that is huge I think the president will use that Joseph Biden will use in the debate.
But ultimately the president believes he's gonna win with negative because it doesn't have a record to run -- -- different.
What about the pride does Mitt Romney is sit back and hope -- -- just makes some.
Huge error at this point he's got to keep doing what he's been doing which is to be as John said positive -- Campaign trail vegan but also make it clear there's an alternative approach to failed policies -- thing -- -- -- Do you think way to winning odds you put on by the Macon -- -- -- -- a -- that's -- reason people won't watch for.
And even odds that he will say something that he shouldn't say that will be a news item and I think serious -- I think this Libya -- will be made an issue in that debate to set up the presidential debate next week it'll be about whether we.
Purposely withdrew security out of Libya before this attack and that is a serious fine and a big blemish for Obama Biden would -- -- -- -- I think the same thanks.
There is a smoking gun potentially and I underscore potentially date him.
In what happened in Libya that could be the October surprise in the campaign the Obama campaign is trying to run out the clock.
And got -- worry about Syria and Turkey literally do which calls every talking about it not not steal your thunder McShane -- -- -- Bentley a terrific to see if you do catch on.
