Pew shows a 12-point swing for Romney, from down 8 to up 5, if that isn’t “big momentum” then I don’t know what is.

Via CBS News:

President Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, denied on “CBS This Morning” that Mr. Obama is sliding in the polls and that Mitt Romney is gaining momentum.

“I don’t think there’s a slide in the polls; I think there was a bump after the debate,” Axelrod said Thursday. “I don’t think there’s big momentum” for Romney, he said, allowing that the Republican challenger “collected a couple of points.”

A new Quinnipiac/CBS News/NY Times poll shows Mr. Obama’s lead tightening in Wisconsin and Romney with a slight advantage in Colorado.

On the morning of the first and only vice presidential debate, Axelrod said Vice President Joe Biden’s challenge “is going to be to pin Congressman Ryan down.”

“The Romney campaign is running away from some of their positions like unwanted step children, but we’re going to hold them to them,” he said.
