Latest Polls Show a Close Race, But Where Is the Romney Effect?

If things are so horrible and bad with the economy why haven't Mitt Romney's numbers jumped through the sky and Barack Obama's numbers plummeted in the latest polls? I don't think that any smart reader of polls can tell you today who will win in November, but campaign research suggests that Romney will have a much tougher time than Obama moving forward because of VP pick scrutiny, national debate preparation, the changing of national and international issues will require him to be more specific in his positions, and the like. Obama has the advantage of incumbency and stronger favorability than Romney; Romney's main political advantage is that he's not currently in any elected office to see how he'd perform in this economy. So, if business background is a winning message, where's the Romney effect?
