Who won the debates?

Despite President Barack Obama's poorly-rated performance in the first debate, viewers determined he bounced back for two "wins" over Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the second and third debates, according to Gallup polls.

In the first debate, Romney dominated, garnering 72 percent of the vote to Obama's 20 percent. For the second and third, however, 51 and 56 percent of those polled viewed Obama as the winner and 38 and 33 percent said Romney had won, respectively.

Overall, the candidates came out nearly tied in the poll, with 46 percent saying Romney did a better job with all three combined, 44 percent siding with Obama and 10 percent answering Neither, Both or No Opinion.
