The University of Michigan's director of debate gave President Barack Obama a big edge in Monday's debate, but said that it may not be enough to "wipe out the huge amount of momentum that Gov. Romney earned" in the first debate in Denver.
Aaron Kall said Obama's performance Monday was as strong as Romney's in the first debate.

"The strategies and performances of both candidates gives you the impression that Governor Romney felt he was ahead going into tonight's debate," Kall said in an e-mail to the Free Press.
He said Romney, however, may have "gone slightly overboard" with a strategy to appear presidential.
His agreement with Obama on several issues including Iran, Afghanistan and Israel "may not sit too well with Gov. Romney's conservative base and could dull much needed enthusiasm."
