That's right. McCain believes that abortion due to medical necessity is "the extreme pro-abortion position."
Other than losing every woman outside of the rabidly religious variety, McCain managed to turn quite a few undecided voters Obama's way by being a snide, eye-rolling, sighing, sarcastic jerk:
Yes, indeedy. That would be Faux News's stable of undecided voters breaking handily for Obama. So far, from all that I've read, not one single person broke for McCain.
Frank Luntz: Early in the debate these people thought McCain was doing better, by the end of the debate Obama seemed to finish better. Brit.
Brit Hume: Question -- you said that none of the people came in there for Obama, may I take it that that's because they were undecided or because they were for McCain?
Luntz: No, they were undecided, we got 23 undecided voters. Brit, I chewed them out to make sure they were undecided. Did anyone switch your position tonight? We have one person... four people. Who did you go to?
Undecided voter #1: I lean more toward Obama.
Undecided voter #2: Obama.
Undecided voter #3: Obama.
Undecided voter #4: Obama.
Luntz: This is a good night for Barack Obama.
And the snap polls showed a definitive Obama win:
McCain's favorability rating actually went down. Strangely enough, Americans are more interested in a man who can lead over a grumpy old fart who can't even mask his contempt for his opponent and progressive Americans.
In the CBS poll of undecided debate-watchers, 53% say Obama won, only 22% say McCain won, and 24% say it was a tie.
The CNN poll was just read on the air, surveying all debate-watchers in general. It shows 58% saying Obama won, to 31% saying McCain won. Barack Obama's personal ratings are 66% favorable to 33% unfavorable, way ahead of McCain's score of 49%-49%.
This picture, I believe, states the case with an eloquence no words can match:
Ladies and gentlemen, one of these two men will be your next President. Choose wisely.
