I am surprised when the polls change after a debate. I can see the 'non-committed' being swayed in a debate, but if you have a favorite, I can't imagine a debate changing one's mind. Or am I completely wrong? [heh, not the first time] added: Agreen made a good point about local vs national politics. Because of the recent debates, I was just considering presidential debates, but failed to make that clear until seeing Agreen's post. He is right. Local debates have swayed me but not presidential.
