    individual polls, "averaging" the debate reaction is the best way to get an objective look at it. There were going to be a few people here who thought Obama did just fine, and a few (like me) that thought that Romney dominated him from start to finish. People need to express themselves honestly and without self-deception in order for that process that work. The key is not to listen to a single voice but to listen to the general trendline which was somewhere in the middle, not quite as extreme as the Chris Matthews freakout, but still clearly a very bad night for Obama that let Romney crawl his way back and a missed opportunity to end the race early.
