Debate ups Obama’s favorability amongst independents, but there’s a catch
8 point uptick in Obama’s favorability amongst independents since the debate source
Meanwhile, Romney’s favorability didn’t change. Most of the numbers in the poll, however, are rather positive for Romney; this is somewhat of an outlier. Obama’s lead in a head-to-head got cut in half, from 8 to 4 points, though he does still lead. Also, just for kicks:
10% of respondents would rather literally watch paint dry than watch Romney and Obama debate each other.
That was actually polled, yes.
