The presidential race appeared to be tightening back up in key battleground states in the wake of Wednesday's debate, as Mitt Romney closed the gap and even edged past President Obama in a trio of polls released Friday.
Rasmussen Reports released post-debate polls in Ohio, Virginia and Florida. They showed a dead heat in all three.
That's a turnaround from last month, when Obama was opening up a lead in those and other states. Romney's Republican supporters are hoping that what was deemed as a dominant debate performance Wednesday will help fuel a campaign-trail rebound, in fundraising, polls and overall momentum with a little more than a month to go until Election Day.
"We're gonna bring back jobs and bring back America," Romney said at a rally in Abingdon, Va., Friday, before heading to a rally later in the day in Florida.
The Rasmussen surveys showed Romney leading by a hair in both those states.
