    Anyone who would do a one day poll the day after the debate is going to get a distorted view of the race.

      The very first 2-3 polls after the first debate had Kerry leading Bush. The following week, the polls that were released showed a moderate swing back towards Bush - the race had tightened, but once the dust settled, Bush basically had a slight lead for the rest of the race.

      (Which most Democrats - myself included - were in denial about, convincing ourselves that Kerry was winning in the final weeks.)
