For me it appears Obama knows what the public WANTS to hear and delivers it. He's a much better speaker than McCain but IMO just doesn't have the experience. Neither one of them wanted to look at the other and the debate moderator struggled at times to even get straight answers. Yes or no. Nothing different this election.
I thinks its fair to say that neither candidate made any impact on undecided voters..its was fairly "routine" and boring, with no surprises, and neither stood above the other..in fact, they sounded about the same on their answers, and actually agreed on most things..
McCain followers beleive he was better..and Obama fans think he was better..Neither candidate was impressive.
