Polls Post-Debate

According to Nate Silver Obama got a narrow lead in the polls last night. Interesting that the online survey by Google has Obama much farther ahead than Romney – where did their people samples come from?  

I couldn’t include Silver’s updated Electoral College poll, but this is my question…isn’t the electoral college what really matters, shouldn’t we be paying the most attention to that — and the fact that Obama has a huge lead?

In other news, according to HuffPost: “A CNN survey of registered voters who watched the debate found that 46 percent said Obama won the debate and 39 percent said Romney did. The survey’s margin of error was four percentage points.” But shouldn’t we be concerned at this point with likely-voters v. registered voters?

Lastly, these two charts from the Washington Post selected a winner of the debate based on their moments – Obama came out on top – especially when he told Romney to look at the transcript in regards to Libya (kudos to Candy Crowley for her immediate fact-checking).
