Tonight's debate reviewed much of the same ground in the same way, with little new information from either candidate. The town hall format didn't seem to change the talking points all that much from campaign speeches.
Without anything like a knockout, let alone a likely "win", McCain remains in serious trouble because he's losing in many of the close states and needs to make major campaign progress within weeks to have even a shot at winning the big prize.
I'd predict most undecided debate viewers will give the debate, narrowly, to Obama. CNN results will be in soon.
If tonight's performance is any indication of the final month of the campaign we are looking at an Obama win.
