CBS Poll: Obama Wins Debate

Source: cbs

It took until the final moments of the second presidential debate for President Obama to finally bring up what many pundits thought would be a no-brainer for an attack on Romney: the GOP challenger’s behind-closed-doors criticism of “47 percent” of Americans. But judging by the CBS News insta-poll, it was a wise choice, as first reactions say Obama won the debate 37 percent to Romney’s 30 percent. On the last question of the night, the candidates were asked what the biggest misperception about them is. Romney insisted he want to serve “100 percent” of the people. Obama answered that he doesn’t believe that government creates jobs, saying he believes in self-reliance and risk-takers. The president’s kicker, however, was all about the 47 percent: “I believe when he said behind closed doors that 47 percent of the country considers themselves … think about who he was talking about.”

3. OBAMA said government doesn't create jobs?????

Why on earth would he say that?????

USDA (NOT a private corporation, I'll remind you) is the nation's largest employer of veterinarians, for starters. Those jobs, involved in making our animal-based food supplies safe, would not even exist if government did not LITERALLY create them. Industry certainly never would on its own.

8. I don't believe Obama said that

I know Romney said it but I don't remember the President saying it.

6. Agreed!

I wish PBO could be POTUS forever! Ok, that's a bit much, but I dearly adore him and his wonderful family!

7. This CBS poll...I noticed that 33% voted it as a tie.

What's up with them? Is this poll some type of wingnut-leaning poll? This is like declaring a draw in a boxing match where one boxer didn't get knocked down, but got pummeled the entire fight. Those are some very dense people to declare it a "tie", despite that moment of infamy where Romney was caught in a lie by the moderator.

9. 37-30 CBS poll, means Obama won. But 45-39 CNN poll is being called "split decision"

The reason Republicans remain a viable party is that most Americans can't fucking do even simple math.

12. And yet the press keeps pushing that it was "very close."

Something tells me they had stories ready to go about how bad Obama had done, but had no choice but to rewrite after he mopped Rmoney off the floor.

Ugh.
