Looks like the undecided voters see Obama as the winner of the debate.

The problem with polls is that they never ask direct questions. They are always leading questions. My point being they have a desired outcome designed into the questions.

I believe the early results (MSNBC, CBS and CNN that I have checked, anyway) all have undecided's/independent's calling Obama the winner, by about 2/3 of those asked.

That is great news.

No independent or undecided voter could have watched that debate and concluded that McCain won. The few that answered such in the poll were probably leaning McCain in the first place. At best, McCain didn't lose any further ground.

The real answer will be seen in the next few day's Gallup and Rasmussen polls.

Obama had a louder, more direct voice. Those who think Obama won are probably used to taking orders from their husbands or fathers in the small confines of a trailer or small apartment (the average abode for a 'lock step' Democrat).

Here is some more truth for you guys. Oh darn, it looks like the CNN polls are even worse than what CBS reported.

CNN just conducted an Opinion Research telephone poll. Obama beat McCain by big margins:

The debate: 52% to 38%
Iraq: 52% to 47%
Economy: 58% to 37%
Update: More than 60% of the CNN focus group in Ohio said Obama won. 64% said they thought he would be the next President.
Update: CBS poll finds more undecideds thought Obama won.

What is the point to your post? You are saying that two liberal media stations reported that Obama won???

What did you think they would say?

CNN have Republicans and Democrats giving their opinions on both candidates and they all don't praise Obama. I think what I smell here is people unwilling to admit that there were people viewing the debate tonight that actually thought McCain lost. He needed to pull out a clear victory and did not succeed. I will leave it at that and let people draw their own conclusion and believe whatever they want.

PS You can always tune into Fox. They will always tell you what you want to hear instead of the truth.
