Obama Won The Debate Again: 3 for 3!

CBS News and Knowledge Networks conducted a nationally representative poll of uncommitted voters to get their immediate reaction to the third and last presidential debate. Once again, it was a clean sweep for Barack Obama:

53% of the uncommitted voters surveyed identified Barack Obama as the winner of the debate. 22% said John McCain won. 25% saw the debate as a draw. Before the debate, 54% thought Obama shared their values. After the debate, that the number rose to 64%. --52% thought McCain shared their values before the debate, and 55% voters thought so afterwards.

CNN gave the debate to Obama by 58% to 31%.

I watched the debate live and I was impressed by Sen. Obama's performance, knowledge and overall style. Sen. McCain spent so much time attacking his opponent, he neglected to show how his administration would differ from Bush. Among other things, McCain's constant invocation of "Joe the plumber" was irritating. If you don't know what I am talking about, you can read the debate transcript and watch the video here:

Two things were hilarious. Watch the photo and video below:

ZERO??? Blink...blink...blink :-o
McCain asks the amount of the fine that Barack Obama would impose on small business owners for not providing health care. Barack Obama answers “Zero.” McCain is taken aback by this apparently unexpected answer. So much so that he looks like a “deer in the headlights”. I cannot help laughing every time I watch this video (just listen to Obama and watch McCain's reaction...hilarious).

The fact that anyone is praising McCain for his performance in the third debate proves that he and Palin have lowered people's expectations down to nothing (don't forget, the VP debates were a tie!)
