After the debate, audience members mobbed President Barack Obama while Mitt Romney was surrounded by just his family. He didn't last long, out of the hall as fast as he could. He has a hard time being around carbon-based life forms, you know?
On the other hand, Obama stuck around 10-15 minutes signing autographs and taking pictures. We saw our real president tonight, and we also saw the real dick Romney. The contrast couldn't be clearer.
Give $5 to Obama, so we can close strong!

Colorado voters give Obama a 48/44 victory in the debate- more importantly 58/36 among independents. Sample is R+3

Our CBS5/SurveyUSA poll of CA voters who watched #debate: 56% say #Obama won, 32% say #Romney, 12% tie. Independents say 44% O, 44% R.

8:36 PM PT: Woo hoo!
The sample of debate watchers was EIGHT points more Republican than the general public, per CNN polling. So even this heavily GOP group gave the victory to Obama.
So, the snap polls are unanimous -- Obama is back on top.
