CBS says uncommited voters who saw the debate favor Kerry by a margin of 39% - 25%.
ABC's poll says Kerry, by a whisker.
Apparently, they polled a focus group that was 38% Republican and 30% Democratic, and yet out of that group, 42% said Kerry won, 41% said Bush won.
42% of Independents favored Kerry, compared to 35% for Bush. Also notable, however, is that 12% of Republicans thought Kerry won, compared to 5% of Democrats thinking that Bush won.
The end result? Kerry still has the initiative, and will gain more traction, more credibility, and more of the swing voters than Bush. Advantage Kerry.
