the early returns

though my earlier post may not have made this entirely clear, i called the debate very much even. kerry scored points on substance, bush on emotional connection; kerry lost points on his emphasis on a summit of allies and intellectualism, bush lost points on demeanor and hypnotic repetition of his talking points.

now, before the hughes/rove machine can really sink their teeth into things, check out these early numbers summarized at washingtonmonthly:

WHO WON?...According to a quickie ABC poll, debate viewers judged Kerry the winner 45%-36% (with the rest judging it a tie).
CNN/USA Today/Gallup has
Kerry the winner 53%-37%.
A CBS poll of uncommitted voters shows Kerry winning 43%-28%.
