    Himself to the extent that he didn't perform as well as Romney. But the standard I'm using isn't does he get some criticism from partisans for his performance. The standard I'm using is did I see anything that would lead me to believe that even the softest Obama supporters would shift to Romney and I just didn't.

    And the very limited amount of data that's appeared seems to back me up. The Reuters poll showed it 48-41 before the debate and 48-43 today. A tightening, but one that came exclusively from Romney gaining voters.
