CNN Flash Poll: Romney wins debate 67% to 25%
CNN ^

Posted on 10/03/2012 8:41:23 PM PDT by Arthurio

(CNN) – Sixty-seven percent of registered voters who watched the debate said GOP nominee Mitt Romney won the debate, while 25% said President Barack Obama came out as the winner, according to a CNN/ORC International Poll released late Wednesday night.

For the survey, 430 adult Americans were interviewed by telephone after the end of the debate. The poll does not and cannot reflect the views of all Americans. It only represents the views of people who watched the event.

The 25% are Obots who are lying.

I was unable to watch the first half, but I agree with the poll based on what I saw.

I have to admit that Zippy was not as horrible as I expected in terms of stupidity and ignorance. But his snark level was pretty high, indicative of his real feeling that he couldn’t keep a muzzle on.

I heard a pundit on Fox Business say that he didn’t think this was a knockout for Romney; that he needed to do well in the next two debates.

Does anyone really believe that Obama will improve without significant help from the moderator? The reason why he won’t is because the reason he didn’t well is because of the substance. He has nothing to talk about.

The fact that he’s an ass doesn’t help, but he can’t say what he really believes and he cannot defend what he’s done.

Game, set, match.

I can’t believe that Romney only tied Obama on who was more likeable (46% said Romney, 45% said Obama). I guess that’s gender gap?

This debate was such a one sided a win for Romney .....

It might even change the minds of some of the pets and dead people who are registered to vote

Obama spent much of his first two minutes saying happy anniversary to his wife. He was trying to run out the clock on the first play from scrimmage.

I am confident Candy Crowley and Bob Scheiffer, the next two debate moderators, will come to the debates fully prepared to give Obama significant help. Lehrer tried tonight by giving Obama more time. However, Obama did not come prepared to fill the time with substance.

They just apologized because they “might” have oversampled Republicans by one or two points.
That translates to “we only over-sampled democrats by 7 points instead of our typical 9 points”

Mitt will win the presidency. For all my anger towards him in the primary guess what? Tonight he was the best GOP debater since Reagan, no question about it.

More importantly the ones that are brain-dead that move and normally vote will probably stay home. This was a demoralizer far worse than what they have been trying to do to us for weeks...

CNN focus group has 8 voting for Romney now out of 39, with another 8 for Obama. But, 16 said Romney won.

Fox focus had a LOT switch vote to Romney, with only 2 of 30 saying Obama won as well.

Schieffer and Crowley will do what they can to stack the deck for obama. However, I believe Romney has a secret weapon, beyond the ken of the Kenyan. You saw it in action tonight, something which cannot be coached or faked.

No knockout punch because this wasn’t a boxing match, it was wrestling, and little Barry got pinned to the mat again and again and again...

And Mitt didn’t break a sweat doing it.

Romney’s sure lucky he didn’t follow in Perry’s footsteps. He announced lists of 3, 4 and 5 things several times, and luckily didn’t forget any.

Michelle had a post on Facebook today asking for people to wish them a Happy Anniversary.Imagine anyone asking to be wished a happy anniversary!? Anyway, I was curious so I clicked the link. When you went to the site, which was the Obama campaign site, there was a video to watch where the two of them acted all "cutesy." At the end of the video Michelle tells Obama that he better give her a good present for their anniversary.

Considering that last year she complained about living in the White House and in Washington...I think Barack's debate performance tonight just gave her that good present. They will be moving soon!

But...what was really tacky, tacky, is that when you sent the wish, you were asked for a donation to the Obama campaign! These people are desperate. And low class. But the desperation really showed on Obama tonight.

I bet now, instead of celebrating their anniversary, the two of them will be counting the "likes" to try and soothe their wounded egos.

I’m watching the post-debates talking heads (didn’t have the stomach to watch Obama) and several have mentioned problems Romney might have re foreign policy. Huh? Pray tell what foreign policy experience did the community organizer have before he became president? What about Clinton?

Please. Between Obama’s complete lack of a foreign policy and his unwillingness to prepare for the debates, I’m sure Romney will wipe the floor with him again.

Foreign policy is the Republicans’ home game. He’d have to do real bad to lose that debate. As bad as Obama did tonight. Romney’s foreign policy answers in the primary tended to be better than his domestic answers too. Not much RINO stuff there.

Does anyone believe that Obama is going to have anything that he can discuss with confidence regarding foreign policy? Mitt needs to keep the pressure on and carry the fight to Obama.

But but but I thought McRomney was McLame redux, that he didn’t want to win, that he was just going through the motions, that the fix was in.

You mean to say Mitt actually fought to WIN?

25% is the absolute physical floor of Obama support. Obama could come out on stage, curl up in his chair, take a nap, and still have 25% of Americans say he won the debate.

Which is essentially what he did tonight, come to think of it...

Candy Crowley from CNN. and when asked if she thought it was fair that Bam got FOUR MORE MINUTES than Mittens to talk,,she gave a spin answer that indicated she will
probably do same for her guy in the next debate. GIVE HIM MORE TIME.(Lib mantra from CNN).

Problem is that more time for Hussein only hurts him.

“Does anyone really believe that Obama will improve without significant help from the moderator? “

Both Reagan and Bush did badly in first debates and ‘came back’.

But this was not just style (Obama looking down was WEAK).
This was substance. Obama’s attacks on Romney are lies and he just swatted them away.
Meanwhile, Romney demolished all Obama’s accomplishments, except for auto bailout.

” The reason why he won’t is because the reason he didn’t well is because of the substance. He has nothing to talk about.”

Exactly. Obama didnt defend his record except in the beginning, he touted the 5 million jobs created. But Romney was more effective in his stories of people still hurting and the data for where we are now.

Facts are not on obama’s side.

Romney demolished Obamacare and all Obama could do is come back and say it was like Romneycare. lol.
So Obama likes Romney’s policies now?!?!?

You should see Chrissy Mathews hysterical meltdown on Rachel Madcow's show.... with race baiter Al Sharpton, Ed Schulz and two other radical left toons, all nodding in agreement with Chrissy's rant over 0dumb0's dismal performance.

Best line from Chrissy's rant..."What was Romney doing? He was winning!"
