Like the second debate, I think the President won this one...but by a slimmer margin than the last. Romney did what he had to do--he showed that he looked Presidential and that he could be the Commander in Chief.
Obama is likely to "win" in the snap polls--but his numbers will not budge in the real polls.
I'm not ready to call this for Romney....yet. But it won't be long.
UPDATE: I must 'splain something,. When I pick a debate winner, I pick the winner based ONLY on the performance of the players in that contest. I separate the debate from the larger context of the campaign.
And so, I thought Obama did a smidge better tonight, and so "won" the debate. Does that mean that Romney won't come out of it better off than he went in? No. It doesn't mean that. I think Indies will be happy with his "i'm not a war-monger" stance and his being very Presidential. But on the subject of the eveningm, BO took it,
