Polls: Obama won foreign policy debate

Posted By on Tue, Oct 23, 2012 at 5:58 AM

WINNER: Barack Obama
  • WINNER: Barack Obama
Probably doesn't matter much, but the results seem uniform. President Obama bested Mitt Romney in last night's debate, though Romney's calculated decision to appear moderate and less of a war-monger might have been a smart move among critical swing voters.

* PUBLIC POLICY POLLING: Obama won 53-42.

* CNN: Obama won 48-40.

* CBS: "Decisive" win for Obama, CBS says, and this one is significant in that it theoretically tests only uncommitted voters. Obama won 53-23, with others putting it at a tie.

ALSO: Nate Silver says Obama unlikely to get big debate bounce, but even a small one would be important.
