The talking heads thought McCain had a good night. The voters disagreed.
CBS snap poll:
Who won? Obama 53, McCain 22.
Who are you voting for now? Obama 28, McCain 14.
CNN poll of debate-watchers:
Who won: Obama 58-31
Obama’s favorables went up, unfavorables down.
The reverse was true of McCain: “after” was 49-49.
Now the CNN talking heads are noticing everything I noticed. They thought that McCain’s attacks made him look strong, and Obama’s flat affect made him look weak; now they see that McCain looked angry and Obama looked like a President.
