More Poll Results

MORE POLL RESULTS….Last night’s two insta-polls showed a modest debate win for Kerry, but neither one told us how Kerry fared among independents, which is really the most important question.

Today, via Mark Kleiman, I see that Gallup has broken down their results: among independents, Kerry won decisively, 53%-37%.

ABC has also updated their results. In their poll, independents thought Kerry won 44%-34%.

I guess the foaming-at-the-mouth act didn’t play so well in the heartland after all.
