Watched it on CNN, with the dial people:
—women generally preferred Obama, which is not a surprise. If women vote in the same numbers as they did in 2008, Obama is going to win.
—neither men nor women liked negative, anti-the-other comments.
—it seemed to me that in general, the dials were more positive for Obama than for Romney, and for longer periods of time. What that means, of course, is yet to be seen.
—most of the questions seemed framed in a way that suggested the questioner — or Candy Crowley, for picking the question — was asking the challenger (Romney) to defend his position more often than the incumbent (Obama) was asked to defend his.
—all that matters now is the spin. Did the Obama-is-in-trouble narrative change, or not? I think it will, but I don’t run the media.
