Romney’s message was strong and in the vein of “We can’t take another four years of Obama’s economy and Obama’s policies”
It is the type of message that will be remembered. He repeated it in several variations over and over in the answers to many of the questions.
So yes, the debate was a win for Romney, message successfully sent and received by the independent voters out there.
Romney may have lost the “debate” to Barry and Candy on points and missed opportunities, but he surely won the electorate.
