The 1st post-debate polls:

Newsweek RV Kerry 49-46 sans Nadar

Zogby LV Bush 46-45

USAToday/CNN/Gallup LV tied 49-49

CBS/NYT LV tied 47-47

Pew LV Bush 49-44

ABC/WaPO LV Bush 51-46

While JMM concludes
"Kerry got a big bounce out of the debate", I contend, he got a small "bounce". The question is whether or not it is the type of bounce one would see when a brick is dropped or whether it is one where a superball is dropped.

As CW claims "undecideds" break against the incumbent (and the sitting President's party doesn't win the Senate in mid-terms elections either!), I see anything with high single digit "undecideds" as leading to a Bush W.

If 75% go to Kerry and Bush has 48%+, then the 25% of "undecideds" would push Bush over 50%. This is, of course, massively caveated by the Electoral College.
