MAYBE BIDEN DID WIN THE DEBATE
October 03, 2008
Wow. Even readers of Fox News agree that Biden won the debate.
And it turns out that folks who worked with Bush and also on the McCain campaign seem to agree.
Perhaps it had something to do with the Sarah Palin debate flowchart:
And CNN's clever response indicator shows that many people didn't take the bait.
Biden repeatedly won high accolades on a wide range of topics. His remarks about the personal trials of having a wife and daughter die in a car accident sent responses from both male and females through the roof.
Much of the time, dial responses sunk when Palin began speaking. Respondents were generally unenthusiastic when she defended McCain. Her defense of the surge generated what was, at best, a flat response.
Following the debate, only one member of the focus group said they had decided to support the McCain-Palin ticket based on the debate; a half-dozen or more said they would now back Obama and Biden.
Somebody, please let the Drudge Report audience know:
They don't seem to get how this whole thing works.
