Debate Performance Begins to Set the Record Straight!

The first full post-debate poll is in. From Newsweek. Kerry up 49% over Bush's 46% in a two- man race. And Kerry 47% over Bush's 45% in a three-man race with Nader factored in.

In the previous Newsweek poll, Bush had led Kerry by 5 or 6 points (depending on Nader in the question) and now Kerry leads Bush by 2 to 3 points. You can do the math.

Of course, the "Liberals" over at MSNBC, who run the Newsweek website, have the headline on their front page "KERRY BOOST: Poll Shows Democrat Even with Bush after Debate". Sigh...
