    It would be even easier for Luntz to stack that group with people who never voted for Obama (but say they did) than it was for the debate last night to be stacked with democrats who had questions tailor made to make it easy on Obama and tough on Romney.

    During the last debate Luntz also had a focus group of undecideds. After the debate, which was a blowout, they were still undecided. No one had changed their minds. This debate did. Most of them cited the economy and that obama felt that his policies were working and would bring in more of them.

    Seems to be a consistent theme amongst Luntz's focus groups.

    Luntz's group thought Palin won the 2008 debate. I guess he had the 40 people in the country that thought Palin won that debate in his group. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKrk_6QjcNw]Frank Luntz Focus Group: Palin is Ready! - YouTube[/ame]

    I'm not accusing Luntz of stacking his group, just saying that it's possible. And i thought Romney was at his most effective when he was just talking honestly about the last 4 years' economic status.

    I saw the debate....the Stormin' Mormon vs. the Lyin' Liberal, as a clear example of form vs. substance.


    On form, I felt it was a draw.


    But on substance, it was Romney exposing the Obama failures and broken promises....and Obama obfuscating and outright lying.....
    ...i.e., claiming that he said the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack, when he tried as hard as he could to blame the bogus video.....

    Sorry but he didn't dominate. He attempted to bully this president and Obama wasn't having any of that. He pushed back and had his say in a much classier way than the Mormon.

    Obama was the clear winner of this debate.
