    According to ABC news, Californians believe Obama took this debate by 61 to 39 percent!

    There you have it. The state that makes the president, has anointed Barrack the winner by large margin!

    So what did you think? Who won according to what you witnessed? :type:

    Obama 'won' because he accomplished what he needed to do--look tough and strong. Romney 'won' because he tied the millstone of economic failure around Obama's neck over and over and over again.

    I guess in the arena of possibly convincing an undecided voter who to vote for, Romney won by an eyelash.

    The annointed one looked better, but the moderator sided with him,
    so he ended up losing.

    California IS full of fruits and nuts, so noone in their right mind
    would count a poll from there. :smilewinkgrin:

    Actually I couldn't vote because there is something missing from the list

    The Crowley-Obama debate team.

    Probably the first presidential debate ever where the candidate had to debate the moderator as well as his presidential opponent.

    Therefore it should be declared a mis-match.

    I think this second debate was very similar to the Biden/Ryan debate. If you asked folks immediately after the debate who won, most folks would say Biden because he fought harder than Ryan. But if you asked the very same persons two or three days later, they will say Ryan, because Biden was overly aggressive and slightly foolish. I think this second Obama/Romney will be judged the same way. If you ask folks immediately after the debate they will say Obama because he was stronger and more aggressive than the first debate. But if you ask the same folks two or three days later, after they have had a chance to reflect on what was really said in the debate, I think most folks will go with Romney. Obama was overly aggressive, and the moderator absolutely broke all the rules, interfering and helping Obama. Folks will reflect on this. Romney had more substance. He pointed out how families incomes are down, gas is up, facts that stick with people. In the end, Romney won.

    I couldn't help thinking the debate ought to have been called "Biden in Wonderland" (The Chesire Cat).
