Romney Looks to Have Momentum, but Still a Month to Go

Hosted by

With exactly a month until Election Day, the Romney campaign is elated over new polls showing him creeping into the lead, with supporters more engaged and enthusiastic after last week's debate. The Obama campaign has responded, in part, with humor in a TV spot ridiculing Romney for threatening to pull funds from public broadcasting. Sesame Workshop says it's a nonpartisan organization that stays out of politics, and has asked the Obama campaign to take down the commercial. Michael Shear is trying to keep a straight face as he covers politics for the New York Times.
