Of course the real test is to see how it affects the polls. But as far as testing it right now – the instant polls are strongly in favor of Kerry. But one of the tests too is that the Kerry people are happy and the Bush people are unhappy. And I think that’s probably the best test that we have in the 90 minutes since the debate ended.
And – it looks like even Fox News is conceding that Kerry won. And when they got it – I think everyone got it.
There’s 2 more presidential debates – a town hall debate – and one on the economy and domestic issues. This is the one where they were on Bush’s turf. It’s up hill for Bush now.
