    Though they are worse than I expected. But even considering the weird favs in the CNN poll it was clearly a loss fair and square.

    •  The CNN poll is pretty misleading (5+ / 0-)

      They only actually have one comparison pre- and post-debate, on favorability, and there Romney is +2 and Obama is +1. And people are just about jumping out of windows over ONE MEASLY POINT??

      Sorry for the shouting but this is something of a set-up and people need to actually review the numbers.

      As others have pointed out, the sample is very skewed, around 75% over 50 and 80-90% white, so Obama was never going to get a very fair shake here. Yes he clearly lost the debate, but there's no evidence in this poll that it has actually damaged his standing in a material way.
