A reader from New Jersey:
I’m a very nervous Bush supporter who thought that Kerry had won the election right after the debate ended. But, I’m watching again on CNN and I feel much better about the President’s performance. President Bush definately won the first half hour of the debate. I missed that part live. Had I seen it, I would’ve come to a different conclusion on the President’s performance. The first part of the debate is the part most people will have seen. The press is gushing about Senatoy Kerry’s performance, but I think the polls will stay the same because of the first half hour.
