Put your gloves on, it's an election season. In their first head-to-head Presidential debate , Barack Obama worked hard to link John McCain to President Bush. He charged that McCain had supported "eight years of failed policies." McCain criticized his rival as a candidate who "doesn't understand" the key issues the country faces. John McCain portrayed himself as a battle-tested elder running against a naive rookie, while Barack Obama suggested the Republican is a hothead who made the wrong choices on the Iraq war, corporate taxes and more.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. says that Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Obama did the better job in the debate, while 38 percent said John McCain did better.
Men were nearly evenly split between the two candidates, with 46 percent giving the win to McCain and 43 percent to Obama. But women voters tended to give Obama higher marks, with 59 percent calling him the night's winner, while just 31 percent said McCain won.
