President Barack Obama speaks during the first presidential debate with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at the University of Denver, Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012, in Denver (Credit: AP / David Goldman)A poll just released shows Mitt Romney ahead of President Obama, 49 percent to 47 percent.  This poll is significant since it is the first survey based entirely on interviews conducted after last Wednesday’s presidential debate.  The polling firm states, however, that “it remains to be seen whether (the bounce) is a temporary blip or signals a lasting change in the race.”  It also notes that “incumbent presidents often struggle in the first debate and do better in the second.”

What should the president do at the debate scheduled for a week from Tuesday?  The Washington Post‘s Sally Quinn has some advice: he needs to “wear God.”  In her view, Gov. Romney’s references to the Lord won him support from those who believe in God; President Obama’s lack of references to God hurt him.  As he wore the American flag on his lapel, so he needs to “wear God.”

I disagree.
