Who ‘won’ the debate?

Right after the debate was over, I went out to some of the more popular political blogs out there to see what they thought of the debate. It seems that quite a few of them think that it was a tie, or bush came out ahead.

So then i hit up the news sites to see what people were saying in their online polls. . . and the results were quite a bit different:

From CNN:

President George W. Bush: 18% 18300 votes
Sen. John Kerry: 79% 81310 votes
Evenly matched: 4% 3834 votes


Bush: 30%
Kerry: 70%

Now I know, I know, online polls aren’t accurate and all that crap, but I just thought it was really interesting that it was such a large gap between the two viewpoints.
