Who do you say did a better job?
In your opinion who won?
Did it change your vote?

What I saw...
Obama talking about what had been done, Romney talking about what needs to be done.
If you listen to MSNBC, Obama
If you listen to Fox, Romney

I never had the chance to catch the whole debate, kept being interrupted by other things. What I did see, I thought clarified their positions. The debates did nt change my mind about either one.I doubt they changed many people`s minds.If you are for Obama you probably still are and the same with Romney,if you were for him you probably are still for him.

I agree with most of the news commentators. ..Romney won a little ground tonight. I don't think he will be ahead in the polls now, but he might break even with Obama.

Romney was agressive, he did not elaborate on what loophole cuts he intended. He did specify, the rich categories did not need any cuts.

Obama, elaborated of over the course and focused on a plan.

But, in fairness Romney took the debate.

I thought the President was Presidential and Romney was on attack but he had the most to lose or gain.
The President had more specifics about steady sustained growth and Romney was big on "his plan" with little specifics but made it sound good with pie in the sky promises.
This debate I give to Romney on performance but it did not change my vote.

Even some very strong left people thought Obama did poorly..I believe Romney did a real good job..Looks like Obama needs a teleprompter.

I believe what Obama has accomplished during the past 4 years will be judged loud and clear at the polls. Wished the popular vote truly elected the President.

Wish people would wake up before its to late and see Obama for what he really is. He wants the Government to control us.This man has had his chance. It's time for a change.

CNN poll released just a little bit ago stated that 67% of the people thought Romney won the debate and 25% said Obama did.

This this is the morning after in the land of the liberals and it is glum out her this morning.They don`t even want to discuss t and I have been up early trying engage some in conversations about it. All I get is you will be sorry if Romney is elected. The impression on the left coast is Romney won.We will see how it effects the polls but a lot of glum faces at the coffee shops.

In my own opinon,Romney took the high ground and held it.

43 straight months of 8% or higher unemployment under Obama.

Wow
Hmm

And for 28 of those 43 months it was actually 9% or higher.

I have been reading a lot of what people around the world had to say about the debate. I am embarrassed for our country that we have a president who came across so defiecient. The eyes of the world were on this debate,including foreign intelligence services, friendly and unfriendly. They were taking the measure of the president in full view against an opponent at the game of wits.Our country lost big with Obama and it should scare the daylights out of anyone who is half way following world events.

The world is on the verge of a world war like we have not seen in a long time and you can bet foreign leaders are taking hteir measure of these two candidates and Obama came across as pitiful. Recent events in Turkey and the dospute between China and Japan places the world in danger of a serious war with maybe nukes and Obama is the leader of the western World. Scares the daylight out of me to even think of it, after seeing him perform and then reading this in the news.

romney won the debate, there's no doubt about that. he should see a bump in the polls soon. whether or not he'll take the lead, i can't say. i sort of doubt it, but he might.

but obama didn't really hurt himself too much. he came across as limp and defensive, but as far as stating his positions and making gaffes, he fared okay. i don't think anybody who was already leaning toward him is going to change their mind based on last night's debate.

Keep in mind a sitting president will always be on the defensive from a challenger.
What the American people need to decide is who has/will do the best job for the next 4 years.

Your sitting President had the "deer in the headlights" look last night. He was totally outmatched and in WAYYYYYYY over his head. If you think that one was bad for the incumbents, just wait till the VP's square off!!!!

no, the other debates will be a lot worse for the gop candidates. the incumbents will be a lot more aggressive now that they're getting such a negative reaction from last night's performance. and it's not like biden needs much goading to go on the offensive; he's a fierce debater.

the deer in the headlights statement...hardly. it's not like he was ever stumped or confused or at a loss for words because of what mitt was throwing at him. it was more like instead of striking out, he was content to keep knocking fly balls backwards over the fence until the night was over rather than swinging for the home run.
