President Obama won Monday’s foreign policy debate in a pair of instant polls, in one of them decisively.
In a survey by CBS News, 53% awarded the debate to Obama, to 23% for Republican Mitt Romney and 24% undecided.
An instant CNN poll found a closer contest as 48% favored Obama and 40% went with Romney. The remainder were undecided.
Both campaigns will look to other polls to see whether the debate moves actual votes. Election Day is two weeks away.
The CBS survey did include some good news for Romney, in that “both candidates enjoyed a bump regarding whom the voters trust to handle international crisis.”
