    Does Romney's debate win make you more likely to vote for him? Maybe 1% or so? Now everyone was touting the CNN after debate "who won" poll so what about this one which shows a moderate bump? More likely is the key because they could change their likely vote along the way.

    CNN poll

    Currently, the votes are:
    No -- 62%
    Yes -- 23%
    Already was -- 15%

    Once the people got to see the man and not was on the Obama campaign ads, yes it had to go up. I didn't think it would change the democrat base, but, I did expect it to move the independents...looks like it did.

    Your CNN link doesn't link to a poll.

    From his source:

    The online poll surveyed 536 registered voters on Wednesday and Thursday after the debate. It has a credibility interval of 4.8 percentage points.

    So it's a virtual tie using the 4.8% margin of error. In otherwords, it's not a very accurate poll.

    Except that 65 million people saw a huge contrast between the leadership abilities Romney showed and whatever it was Obama was doing. That can be unseen. It's something people needed to see unfiltered for themselves.

    What do people really remember from the debate? That Romney wants to kill Big Bird. That's how American politics works. Which would be why Mitt can't budge in the polls, despite the media wishing so hard they could make a horse race of it.
