Update: Democracy Poll (D) says Kerry scored big (PDF):
John Kerry won the final presidential debate and produced the biggest shift yet in the actual vote for president. In this national representative survey of 1,030 likely voters, with data collected by Knowledge Networks, Kerry moved into a 3-point lead over Bush, 50 to 47 percent, after the debate. The survey participants began the evening evenly split, 48 to 48 percent, as the country as a whole. But Kerry got a clear a boost from Wednesday's debate, which will very likely reverberate in the coming days.
Kerry gained 2 points in the first presidential debate, according to the Democracy Corps survey, and 1 point in the 2nd Town Hall Debate.
Kerry also gained 2 points in the battleground states, where his lead is substantial, 54 to 44 percent after the debate.
As with nearly all other polls, the Democracy Corps national survey shows Kerry winning the debate by 5 points, 41 to 36 percent. Among independents, he won by 6 points and by 9 in the battleground states. While there are a small number of undecided (61 respondents), Kerry won by 8 points. (Among college educated women, Kerry won by 20 points.)
We're winning the post-debate spin cycle, but credit given where credit due -- Kerry gave us good material to work with. While Bush foamed at the mouth (literally), Kerry was the Zen Master. And the people loved it
