How Sandy saved Obama

Americans are giving Obama hurricane response high marks:

ABC reports that “78 percent rate Obama’s response to the hurricane positively (as excellent or good), while just 8 percent see it negatively. Romney, who naturally has had a far less prominent role in this issue, is rated positively for his response to the hurricane by 44 percent, negatively by 21 percent, with many more, 35 percent, expressing no opinion.” Even 63 percent of Republicans approve of Obama’s disaster leadership

Margaret Carlson believes that Obama’s visit to New Jersey has guaranteed his victory next week:

In September my Bloomberg View colleague Josh Barro wrote that Romney lost the election on the day his dismissive remarks about “the 47 percent” were made public. If Obama wins this election, we may look back at today and say this hug in Brigantine, New Jersey, is the moment that sealed it for him. Obama and Christie made the politics of the presidential campaign look small, and reminded us that politicians care about something more than who’s ahead in Ohio.
