Debate Poll Update

DEBATE POLL UDPATE….I can only find one instant poll: ABC says Kerry won the debate 44%-41%. However, there’s no indication of how independents scored it, which is probably the only number that really counts.

….OK, there’s a second poll after all. CNN/USA Today/Gallup says Kerry won 47%-45%.

Basically, a modest win for Kerry. I’ll stick with my guess that he picks up a point or two in the national polling next week.
