CBS Snap Debate Poll: Obama's Stock Rose More


In fact, the margin favors Obama by 14% with independent voters.

From CBS:

46% of uncommitted voters said their opinion of Obama got better tonight. 32% percent said their opinion of McCain got better.

And on the economy, Obama absolutely dominated by 24 points…

66% of uncommitted voters think Obama would make the right decisions about the economy. 42% think McCain would.

Still, McCain held his foreign policy, but only by 8 points…

48% of these voters think Obama would make the right decisions about Iraq. 56% think McCain would.

Conclusion: It looks like this one could be shaping up to ultimately be a win for Obama.

Here’s the link to all the results…

Also, these numbers are particularly revealing…

Obama beats McCain by 38 points in “understands your needs and problems”?! That’s a pretty huge gap. True, McCain did add 5 points to his total last night, but looks like he’ll really have to start talking about the nation’s problems instead of talking about Obama’s personality if he has any shot of winning this thing.

Also, as far as crossing the Commander In Chief threshold, Obama has done it. Of course McCain will always have higher numbers in that category, but Obama cut his lead in half from a +35 to a +18. If Obama can essentially keep that spread, I think that’s enough for most swing voters to think that judgement trumps experience in this election.
