Gallup: Obama Up By 8
Well, looks like Americans really did think Obama won the debate.
Add to that the horrible Palin/Couric interview and McCain’s campaign suspension stunt, and you have the makings of a perfect storm that sees McCain with his lowest numbers since Gallup started polling.
The full impact of the debate and its aftermath will not be reflected in the tracking data until Tuesday’s report, which will be based on interviewing conducted Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
Still, Gallup’s one-day read on the standing of the two candidates on Saturday suggests that Obama held the lead over McCain among registered voters that night, just as he had for the two previous nights.
