FIRST POST-DEBATE POLL NUMBERS SHOW PRESIDENTIAL RACE ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED 

A Reuters/Ipsos poll of voters taken after Wednesday’s presidential debate shows only minor movement. In the poll’s last pre-debate survey, President Obama led Mitt Romney by seven points. After the debate, Obama’s lead remains five points, 48 percent to 43.

*****************************************************************

Do you think Wednesday's debate made a difference in the poll numbers? 

Do you think moderates and independents are paying close attention to the debates to determine which way they will vote?

    It doesn't appear to have effected the poll numbers much at all.  While I think people are paying attention to the debates, I'm not sure I believe they will be the determining factor for most people.

    I don't think moderates or independants are being swayed, I think we will see more people voting 3rd party this election.  Which I am happy about:)

    I didn't bother watching the debates, Obama & Romney are both idiots & both will not help this country at all.

    I will be voting 3rd party, I refuse to stick w/the thought of having to vote for the lesser of 2 evils.

    We want things to change in this country, well they won't change unless we as citizens do as well & part of that change many are starting w/how they vote.

    It affected things for me personally.  I was not sure which direction I was going to go.  Now I am leaning towards Romney.  I am not sure who they polled, but I can speak for myself.
