Snap polls: Obama won foreign policy debate


Snap polls from CNN and CBS News gave President Obama the victory in the foreign policy debate.

In the CNN-ORC poll, 48 percent of voters said Obama won; 40 percent said Romney did. The CBS poll of uncommitted voters was more dramatic: Obama took 53 percent, Romney took 23 percent, and another 24 percent called it a tie.

Historically the correlation between snap poll results and changes in head-to-head polls is not statistically significant, according to the New York Times’ Nate Silver.
