US presidential debate polls

Interesting stuff from Pew Research:

72 % of likely voters said Obama did a good or excellent job in the debate, compared to 59% for McCain.

In the ‘one-word’ question (give me one word to describe Candidate X in the debate), the following results came up:

  • Obama:
    • 50% “confident”
    • 31% “inexperienced”
    • 31% “intelligent”
    • 28% “presidential”
  • McCain
    • 61% “experienced”
    • 38% “old”
    • 33% “knowledgeable”
    • 26% “confident”

Obama’s up 51% to 33% on who would handle the economy better, and overall 49% to 43% ahead of McCain.
