Data from the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows that on the two nights following the debate (Wednesday and Thursday) Clinton held a 45% to 18% lead over Barack Obama. For Clinton, that’s an improvement from Monday and Tuesday nights when her lead over Obama had been 40% to 24%.Although I still don't like her she does still have more support as the one most likely to have what it takes to keep Rudy Giuliani or Mitt Romney out of the White House.
John Edwards was at 10% on the first two nights and 12% on Wednesday and Thursday. Bill Richardson went from 5% to 7% during the same time frames.
It would appear that the real looser was Obama who needed to hit a home run and just got a single.
On the other side Giuliani continues to try to sound like George Bush and Dick Cheney on steroids at a time that Bush's approval rating is now below 50% in all 50 states - a first.
