Talking heads on CNN and Twitter are in accord that Mitt Romney beat President Barack Obama in Wednesday night’s debate

“We had a big upset here tonight,” David Gergen, who worked in both Democratic and Republican White Houses, told CNN. “By two to one, Americans thought Obama would win, and he lost. I suspect the president hasn’t been talked to like that for four years.”

A bad performance by Romney essentially would have ended the presidential campaign, Gergen said. “Now we have a horse race on our hands.”

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina told CNN viewers that “Romney won it on demeanor, on facts, and specifics. And he connected them to real people.”

Even James Carville, former ace political strategist for President Bill Clinton, had little praise for Obama. “He didn’t want to be there,” Carville said. “I got the sense the president would have preferred to be somewhere else. He didn’t bring his ‘A’ game.”

On Twitter, comments from Doug Schoen, Hillary Clinton’s former pollster, are representative. “Obama is trying to convince himself as he tries to convince America,” he wrote. Do we follow an indecisive?”
