  • There were well over 2,000,000 individual responses to poll questions.
  • Most poll questions averaged 35,000 to 40,000 respondents per question.

  • 51% of undecideds declared Obama the victor, while 17% declared Romney the victor. 32% remained unsure of a winner.
  • Among those who leaned Romney prior to the debate, 19% thought Obama won the debate, compared with 2% of pre-debate Obama leaners who thought Romney won the debate.
  • 28% of undecideds either leaned or decisively supported Obama post-debate. 10% either leaned or decisively supported Romney post-debate.
  • 52% of undecideds declared Obama the most truthful, and 17% declared Romney the most truthful.
