Republicans will claim debate victory

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham tweets: "If this was a boxing match, they would stop it."

Ari Fleischer (former Bush spokesman) tweets: "I think the President misses his TelePromTer."

Republicans will come out of this buoyant and claiming a victory. Fox News will be exultant.

It is true that Romney is doing far better now than he did in his primary debates with fellow Republicans. But of course there is a separate question whether it's enough and whether it is swaying undecided voters. Too early to judge that.
