Wrap up: The third debate; Update: Insta-polls coming in

posted at 11:02 pm on October 22, 2012 by Allahpundit

The nearly universal consensus on Twitter is that Romney won by holding his own, which is all a challenger needs to do in a foreign-policy debate. After watching him talk about international affairs for 90 minutes, does he seem like a guy you’d trust with the button? If yes, then mission accomplished.

Doesn’t matter who won the battle, says Ron Fournier. What matters is who won the war:

Mitt Romney wins. That’s not to say he won Monday night’s debate or the presidential campaign, but it’s safe to say he won an important chapter: The debate season…

There are ample reasons for both Obama and Romney to feel optimistic about their chances Nov. 6. But through his own steady performances and a spectacular first-debate failure by the incumbent, Romney has cleared an important hurdle: A near-decisive number of Americans believe that he is a viable alternative to Obama, an incumbent saddled with a weak economy and a pessimistic national mood.

Another point made more than once in the national tweet scrum tonight was that it sometimes felt like Romney was the incumbent and Obama the angry, occasionally snide challenger. That’s a byproduct, I’m sure, of Team Mitt rehearsing very carefully to capture the sort of tone that Murphy mentioned above. Romney wanted to show the audience not just that he understands Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran, but that he’s unflappable even in a tense situation. Obama wasn’t facing that test so he could afford to be more aggressive, if only to impress his base. Because he was playing offense, I’ll bet that he wins the insta-polls. But that won’t matter; the bottom line is that Romney’s still on track. Stand by for updates.

Update: To see what I mean by snide, here’s O telling Romney that the 1980s called and asked for their foreign policy back. Which is an old enough gag that I think it actually does date to the 1980s.

Update: No surprise:

Waiting for CNN’s poll and, maybe, some focus group video.

Update: A curious lack of curiosity:

Soledad O’Brien was just interviewing the CNN undecided voter focus group. She asked them (quoting from memory): “How many of you changed your mind based upon tonight’s debate.” A whole bunch of hands went up. But — and this is not a joke — O’Brien refused to ask them who they’d would vote for because voting is a “private matter.”

I’m not making this up.

Update: Hearing on Twitter that CNN’s insta-poll has Obama winning 48/40. O won the insta-poll after the second debate by a nearly identical margin, and yet the Mitt-mentum continued. Meanwhile, for what it’s worth, Mark Halperin calls it a flat tie.

Update: A more significant poll result, maybe:

Update: Say, what happened to the Benghazi tonight?

Update: Another key data point:

Update: George Will celebrates the triumph of anti-interventionists:

Update: Not much of a “win” for O, was it?

Raquel Pinkbullet on October 22, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Nice summary from the Ann Althouse blog:

9:52: Here’s my bottom line: By adopting a strategy of only modestly challenging Obama and mostly seeming the same as Obama on foreign policy, Romney neutralized foreign policy as an issue and kept the election focus on the economy. He even refocused the discussion on the economy whenever he could over the course of the evening. The election is about the economy, and nothing either candidate said tonight will change that. The only way Obama really could have won is if Romney had tumbled into some kind of exploitable gaffe. That didn’t happen.

When I was in Basic in 1973, we trained with bayonets and beat on one another with pugil sticks to simulate fighting with the rifle and a bayonet as weapons. I spent 4 years with the 7th Infantry Division, known as the Bayonet Division. The last bayonet charge was by the 25th Division, 27th Infantry Regiment in Korea in 1951. I served in Korea for 5 years and bayonets were still issued while I was there. I suspect Zero doesn’t know squat about bayonets.

Romney is trying to steal the middle he has his base,
the SCOAMF was desperately trying to stem the bleeding of his base and the middle.
Romney wins because he looked more reasonable, confident and not snide, snarky or petty.
Mitt will win as he has stolen a lot of previously Obama voters unsatisfied with the status Qou while not allowing Obama any grounds to paint him as a warmonger or soft on terror.

The base wants attacks and destruction the middle wants reasonable calm and accomplished! Mitt Wins hands down!

The President, on the other hand, actually sounded like a President, perhaps for the first time in his four year term.

Obama was too often peevish, snarky, and infantile;

Obama’s statement that, fortunately, he had kept Congress out of the loop on the military budget, and that sequestration “is not going to happen” revealed his arrogance and meglomania to an unhelpful degree.

This neatly sums up why Obama could never get anything done after the 2010 elections. He never could get bipartisan accords on anything because everyone thinks he’s a self~righteous a$$hole. These types rarely can build consensus on anything. IOW, he’s not Presidential timber. Mitt Romney on the other hand is cut from different cloth.

The contrast of Romney’s steadiness vs. the immature Obama has convinced me forever that the only reason to vote for Obama is the color of his skin. And that is why liberals are a disgrace to themselves and this country. Obama is the antithesis of Martin Luther Kings statement that it is not the color of a mans skin that matters, but the content of his character.

And B HO has no character. Same goes for Elizabeth Warren. The liberals are rife with these types. They’ve found a home withe the characterless left.

The two candidates are identitcal on foreign policy. So I (like everyone) is making a choice in the Presidential election based upon domestic policy. The fact that there is no choice on foreign policy doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t point out where foreign policy is immoral. But, I know, for people like you the Obama hatred is so intense and the loyalty to the GOP is so profound that when Romney enacts the exact same foreign policy you’ll support it.

Farred Zakira is such a hack. Why didn’t CNN fire him after he got caught RED handed plagiarizing?

Raquel Pinkbullet on October 22, 2012 at 11:58 PM

We still fight on horses. Its too bad the President isn’t smart enough to comprehend that.

Juan and Hannity yelling about foreign policy, but nobody cares…

MGardner on October 22, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Remember when you were gloating after the VP debate and the 2nd pres debate? How’d that work out for you?

The Count on October 22, 2012 at 11:52 PM

Not to mention how he guaranteed that the ‘drop’ in the unemployment figure to 7.8% was going to be an “atomic bomb” against Romney?

Liam on October 22, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Aww, now I’m misspelling/typo-ing in French too :)…silly ipad, or is it the Martini??…

jimver on October 22, 2012 at 11:55 PM

Uh oh. You weren’t playing that dangerous debate drinking game, were you? You know, the one where you had to drink everytime KingZero said “I” or “me?”

cynccook on October 22, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Ugh, Juan, I need more Martini…man, and he’s screaming again…

Whats with intrade….

BrianVII on October 22, 2012 at 11:56 PM

Intrade is full of Eurolibs wishcasting and is the favorite of trolls, and Mobys to cite.

Question:

How many liberal morons tried to google “Mali” after Romney mentioned it twice, and how many of those people spelled it “Molly?”

Just a curiosity.

Juan Williams about to jump from his chair and attack Hannity, not that I blame him because Hannity’s voice drives me insane.

Bishop on October 23, 2012 at 12:00 AM

He knows well enough that a Democrat isn’t going to win in 2016.

Gingotts on October 22, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Don’t get ahead of yourself. Plenty of Democrats were saying that there was no way a Republican would be able to win in 2012. And, heck, it’s still possible that a Republican won’t win in 2012.

JimLennon on October 23, 2012 at 12:00 AM

’16 is between Plugs and that stuttering hack O’Malley. It has to be extra disheartening for the left to know that when they lose in two weeks, they’ll be losing for eight years. I laugh at their pain.

Gingotts on October 22, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Don’t count Obama out for 2016. He is young enough. The press would treat Romney’s 4 years as an Interregnum.

Captain Kirock on October 23, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Juan Williams is so confident that he’s yelling at the top of his lungs like a lunatic.

Surely he knows they have this thing in the bag./

That can ONLY be read as more democrats were polled…and a whole lot of ‘em are NOT voting for Zero.

Rational Thought on October 23, 2012 at 12:01 AM

Folks lets move forward, not backward to the policies of the last 4 years.

El_Terrible on October 23, 2012 at 12:01 AM

The Obama campaign is so focused on EARLY VOTING because the new JOBS REPORT is due out NOVEMBER 2.

Also, by law, those military defense firms and contractors MUST by law notify their employees who will be layed-off due to the coming sequestration… just before election day!

Obama knows that he’s losing votes, not gaining them.

Mitt has momentum. He’s only going to amass more support in the next two weeks.

Undecideds who wait this late historically break for the challenger.

Bishop on October 23, 2012 at 12:00 AM

He’s also a hack who wouldn’t know sophisticated policy if it bit him in the ass.

There are so many more qualified people for his timeslot that it’s embarrassing.

How come broads were not Palin-hot when I was a kid?

…dude…what was at the end of her necklace?…I stood up and tried to peer down at the bottom of the screen…and still couldn’t see it!…my wife told me “sit down pig!”… and quit blocking the TV!
