In a CBS News poll, 37 percent of 525 uncommitted voters who watched the debate declared Obama the winner
Despite Obama’s slight edge overall, Romney was seen as better able to handle most issues.
The trend was most notable in the CNN poll: he had an 18-point edge among registered voters on the economy (58 percent to Obama's 40 percent ); a 3-point edge on health care (49 percent to 46 percent); a 7-point edge on taxes (51 percent to 44 percent); and, largest of all, a 23-point edge on the deficit (59 percent to 36 percent).
Even the MSNBC Undecided Voter Panel was swayed by Romney.
The big loser (and I mean that, as Joe Biden would say, literally) was CNN and Candy Crowley, who skewed hard for Obama in disastrous debate
