Obama Takes The Night

Well, I thought last night was tie and therefore went to Obama, but it looks like the lion's share of viewers give Obama a win. Most importantly, Independents favored Obama to McCain by a large margin. Even Fox's focus group preferred him. 

Works for me. 
That was my impression too. I was much more impressed with Obama's performance than many other bloggers. Here's the CNN poll:
Thinking about the following characteristics and qualities, please say whether you think each one better described Barack Obama or John McCain during tonight's debate:
• Was more intelligent: Obama 55%, McCain 30%
• Expressed his views more clearly: Obama 53%, McCain 36%
• Spent more time attacking his opponent: McCain 60%, Obama 23%
• Was more sincere and authentic: Obama 46%, McCain 38%
• Seemed to be the stronger leader: Obama 49%, McCain 43%
• Was more likeable: Obama 61%, McCain 26%
• Was more in touch with the needs and problems of people like you: Obama 62%, McCain 32%
