Most prepared incumbent struggles in debate

RNC Communications - October 4, 2012

After preparing for the debate more than any sitting president, the reviews aren’t great as the president gets snippy with Lehrer, MSNBC hosts are stunned with his poor performance and a poll shows 56% of uncommitted voters say their opinion of Romney has changed for the better and only 13% for Obama.

NBC: Obama has prepared more for debate than any sitting president

TWEETS:

@MarkKnoller: Poll shows 56% of uncommitted voters say their opinion of Romney has changed for the better. 13% say that about the President. 

@DenverPost: "Mitt Romney comes on strong against President Obama in University of Denver Debate" http://bit.ly/WmkCj3 #tcot 

@JoeNBC: Chris Christie was right again. Tonight's debate has changed the trajectory of this race. 

@morningmoneyben: Good debate for Romney. Someone should get POTUS some stronger coffee before the next one. 

@JFKucinich So far no Obama surrogates in the spin room that I can see...

@CNNPolitics "Mitt Romney absolutely wins the preparation. And he wins the style points," Obama's campaign manager tells Jessica Yellin #CNNDebate.

@StuPolitics: Never expected anything like this...... 

@BuzzFeedAndrew: Chris Matthews says if Obama has two more debates like this "he is finished." 

@JimHeath10TV I watched the debate without paying attention to twitter chatter. My guess is Independents will give Romney new look.
