CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby on 1st presidential debate and latest political poll
Christie’s comment “flies in the face of everything the Romney campaign’s been trying to do for the last few weeks,” Hamby says, “basically saying the debates weren’t going to impact the election.” Hamby describes this as Chris Christie doing “his own thing.” Berman calls it “a rare moment of honest, which is refreshing.”
Obama has been leading and maintaining a lead in many polls in the last few weeks. “However, one thing tilting in Romney’s direction,” Hamby says. Asked which candidate you are confident will get the country back on track economically, 47% of likely voters said Obama, 51% of likely voters said Romney.
