Press: Romney Loses Debate; Voters: Romney Wins Debate

I confess to having a queasy feeling about last night’s debate — but to be fair, that’s only because of Romney’s knockout debate a couple of weeks ago. Last night, Mitt Romney delivered the third best performance of any Republican candidate in a presidential debate in 30+ years.

The best performance was Mitt Romney two weeks ago. The second best was Reagan in 1980. The third best was last night. Not bad.

The press, of course, called it for Obama.

The polls say different.
