Preliminary signs show Hillary pulling away again after the debate

While reminding us that most good polls are taken over a seven-day period and that since it's been less than a week since the debate it will still be several days before we'll know for sure, Nate Silver tells us that preliminary data suggests that Hillary has gotten a bounce from the debate and is moving back to the position she occupied before her numbers started to go south.

He also points out that even a small gain has huge implications for the Electoral College. Even now, days before the first definitive post-debate polls come out, Hillary's chances of winning according to Silver have gone back up to 63.7% to 36.2% for Captian Oblivious.

Even the latest Rasmussen Poll, which has a strong Republican bias, shows Hillary up by one point. That's bad news for Trump.
