There is no such thing as winning a debate. It's not like a sporting event where there is a single and clear winner, no disputes. Debates are pure perspective. If you go by a meter at the bottom of the screen controlled by 39 people and then some bias reporting both ways afterwards, I guess then you could say you think somebody won.
Fact is, Romney needs a miracle to win this thing. He's behind in all the swing states and by a pretty decent amount in some of them. He can't just get a few of those, he needs almost ALL of those swing states.
