The press is all Journolisting the Obama “victory” in last night’s debate (as Rich pointed out). The voters, however, have a very different take on the matter:
The press, of course, called it for Obama.
The polls say different. From the excellent Ace of Spades blog: (Have you bookmarked that one? You should.)
CBS Poll: Romney Wins 65-34 on Economy; CNN Poll: Romney Wins 54-40 on Economy, 49-46 on Health Care, 51-44 on Taxes, 59-36 on Deficit, 49-46 on Leadership, All in Favor of Romney.
Rob Long then also notes the same focus group information I linked this morning.
I suspect that the debate was not as much of an Obama win as they press would have you believe. But it probably did even more damage to the media.
