Did President Bush escape with his lead in the polls intact? Newsweek says no. Rasmussen says yes. Powerline has a somewhat heartening post pointing out that Newsweek may be playing games with its statistical sampling. Thank goodness for blogs. All I can say is, Dubya had better do a hell of a lot better in the next debate. Keep your fingers crossed and I'll continue my nervous wait for more poll results to be announced.
By the way, check out the Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004 in which the electoral vote situation is mapped out from day to day. It is unclear to me whether the current numbers (Bush 296, Kerry 238) reflects any post-debate polling yet.
