Who was that again who said Presidential debates do not matter? Oh yea, the bias in the tank liberal MSM for Obama. President Barack Obama is learning the hard way that they certainly do. In the latest of post debate polls, the PEW poll has GOP candidate Mitt Romney now in the lead over Obama, 49% to 45%. Romney has erased ab 8% prior debate deficit and now leads by 4%, a 12% swing. 89% of Republicans believed that Romney won the recent Presidential debate and more importantly, 72% of Independents did as well.
In turn, Romney has drawn even with Obama in the presidential race among registered voters (46% to 46%) after trailing by nine points (42% to 51%) in September. Among likely voters, Romney holds a slight 49% to 45% edge over Obama. He trailed by eight points among likely voters last month.
Fully 66% of registered voters say Romney did the better job in last Wednesday’s debate, compared with just 20% who say Obama did better. A majority (64%) of voters who watched the debate describe it as mostly informative; just 26% say it was mostly confusing.
Check out at Hot Air the change in the demographic vote of men and women toward Romney, Mitt is now tied with Obama for the women vote.
What a difference a debate makes and more importantly, what a difference it makes for Romney to introduce himself to America and be juxtaposed to Obama and allowed to present his own ideas rather than being falsely dictated by Obama attack ads. America saw for themselves that Romney was intelligent, rational and had ideas to fix the economy and work with others to do it. America saw an” empty chair” in Obama as he failed miserably.
