5. The polls would disagree with you...

By losing the first debate, Obama gave up 4% in the national popular vote. By winning the second debate (and after Biden's victory in the VP debate) Obama reclaimed only 0.2% of that, and most people expect even less after the third debate. If this was a conscious strategy by Obama, it was one that cost him more that 3.5% in a hair's-breadth election, and may make the difference on 11/6.
