Instant Polls Say Obama Won Final Debate
Two instant polls, one by CBS and another by CNN, indicate President Obama won the final presidential debate.

CNN said Mr. Obama won by eight percentage points among the debate watchers it polled, 48% to 40%, with a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percentage points. CNN noted the Obama win was within the margin of error. The network didn’t say how many respondents there were to its poll.
