Romney Needs a Game Changer

Both campaigns are attempting to lower expectations for next week's debates, but First Read says "here's the only expectation you need to know: Romney needs a game-changer, while Obama needs a split decision. That's what happens when one person is behind and the other is ahead."

Charlie Cook: "If the presidential race stays on its current course for another week or 10 days, Romney faces the very real prospect that Republican donors, super PACs, and other parts of the GOP support structure will begin to shift resources away from helping him and toward a last-ditch effort to win a Senate majority--which once seemed very likely--and to protect the party's House majority."

Charles Krauthammer: "His unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing. For six months, he's been matching Obama small ball for small ball... When you're behind, however, safe is fatal."
