I was working on this quick little graphic last night but got distracted and just finished it.
Disagree with me? So do all of these headlines:
and of course...
This puts me squarely in the minority for thinking that John McCain "won" last night's debate. I think this is in part because I judged the candidates on their "performance" with slightly less emphasis on the issues. McCain put on his best debate performance yet while Barack Obama put on his worst performance of the three debates. That's not to say that Obama put on a particularly bad performance. In fact, on Obama's worst day he still nearly outperformed McCain at his best.
Or at least that's my own personal spin.
So who do you think won? Cast your vote on the survey on my homepage.
