mortsfolly, Lets be realistic here and use some intelligence. If you are planning on voting for Obama, you will feel Obama won the debate. If you are planning on voting for Romney, you will feel Romney won the debate. This debate will have zero effect on those people. The undecided are probably split, some will feel Obama won others will feel Romney won. November 6 will tell the tale.
Obama did do better(in spite of his consistent lies) and Romney also was sharp and nailed him several times. The problem as I see it, Obama needed a knockout which he clearly did not do just to get back in the game. This may help to explain why the "toss up states" are going to Romney and now, maybe even of greater importance, the states leaning to Obama are now dead heats or even going slightly to Romney in some cases This is huge.
