This will make you feel better:

  1. Sure, most people think Mitt Romney won the debate. But that doesn't mean they like him any better, and it doesn't mean they are going to vote for him:

    CNN goes through data on how Romney won on all counts then says 8 of the undecides will now support Romney, 8 will now support Obama

  2. As silly as it seems, attacking Big Bird was not only a clear low point for Romney in the debate, but it it may prove to be the most memorable moment of the entire night. On Twitter, as of 12:45 AM EST, Big Bird remains the highest trending debate-related topic in the United States:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
