Once again, Forrest @ American Bodhisattva has done a yeoman's job in compiling results of insta-polling on the debate last night. Some of the data was captured right after the debate; some of it has been adjusted over the past few hours.
Bottom line - looks like America liked John Edwards. Perhaps there was some "freeping" of the polls by progressives (a tried and true neocon tactic), but even freeping by the Democratic faithful would not account for such a wide gap in perception by the public.
All in all, Edwards seems to have walked away with this one.
2 - 0, Democrats.
