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.

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