Battery to starter cable fault

I have what appears to be a faulty cable from the battery to the starter. It's been turning the engine over slower and slower until finally I had to investigate. Wiggling the end of the cable at the starter appeared to fix the problem for now.

I will renew the cable ASAP. But meantime could this also be the cause of a general lack of power? At the same time as the starter began churning slowly, the engine seemed to have no real 'go' on the open road. Is that possible?
