Early Reviews Call It Clear Win For President Obama
“Obama won,“ “Appeared calmer and more authoritative,” “near-rout for Obama”
@JWGOP This actually was better than Obama was even in 2008. His best debate performance as a presidential candidate. Period.
@ezraklein Romney won the first debate by a larger margin than I expected. Obama won the second debate by a larger margin than I expected.
@ethanklapper Obama won tonight's debate. Romney had disastrous answer on Libya. Bad answers on paycheck fairness, gun control.
@ron_fournier Obama nailed the close
@ZekeJMiller And the Obama surrogates are first into the spin room with a dramatic walk-in
@charliespiering My take: Obama did better in debate, caught Romney on several zingers
M. Ambinder @ThePEOC I watched from the debate hall, didn’t see how it looked, don’t know what others are saying. My early impression: Obama killed it.
Andrew Sullivan @sullydish Obama has won every single exchange in this debate; and he has also appeared calmer and more authoritative. http://thebea.st/V7xk8A
Ben Smith @BuzzFeedBen Video of the libya exchange, the moment Obama won the debate.http://youtu.be/a-sp0b33fbs
Corey Dade @coreydadeNPR Obama touches all bases: I believe free enterprise, self-reliance, individual initiative, all getting a fair shot, paying their fair share.
michaelhirsh @michaelphirsh Whoa. Obama saves his 47 percent ref for last ... smart, effective. And no chance for comeback. He wins, no question.
Charlie Spiering @charliespiering My take: Obama did better in debate, caught Romney on several zingers
Tim Dickinson @7im Brooks: Obama won the debate
Ari Melber @AriMelber Probably the best debate of Obama's career, a U-turn from first debate - @maddow
Joshua Green @JoshuaGreen Well, I thought it was near-rout for Obama. Curious what snap polls say.
Ethan Klapper @ethanklapper Obama won tonight's debate. Romney had disastrous answer on Libya. Bad answers on paycheck fairness, gun control.
AdamSerwer @AdamSerwer Yeah Obama won that debate.
Ethan Klapper @ethanklapper Race is reset, and Romney's bounce is probably done after this. Especially among women.
