The shock of the first Presidential Debate has apparently worn off.

Remember that debate where Republican Nominee Mitt Romney performed well and President Barack Obama didn’t show up.

Now we have the new ABC News/Washington Post poll showing Obama up 3.0% over Romney.

It seems the make the Republicans think there losing mentality is back in play now that the psychological trauma has worn off for the moment.

What is interesting about the poll is the weighting of Democrats was 9% more than Republicans. A number higher than four years ago.

It’s an interesting twist considering Republican voter intensity is currently higher than Democrats.
