POLL: Who Won the Second Presidential Debate?

Obama's performance was widely panned after the first debate. What did you think of the two candidates tonight?

Voters nationwide tuned in tonight to the second presidential debate between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The town-hall style debate started at 6 p.m. Pacific Time. It largely featured questions from voters in the audience, with Moderator and CNN political correspondent Candy Crawley asking a few of her own, too.     

Obama was under pressure from Democrats to improve on his performance in the first debate, which many called lackluster. Romney was looking to grow the momentum he received after that debate. 

So what do you think? Did Romney or Obama win this debate, and why? What did you think of how Crawley handled the forum? Did you appreciate the voters' questions, or think some went unanswered?

Vote in our poll and tell us your thoughts in the comments!

"Romney has a near perfect record of cowardice, obfuscation and downright lies. It shows enormous disrespect for the intelligence of the public." - Joe Klein Time Magazine 5/11/2012

Speaking of "disrespect" and outright rudeness, that was Romney in last night's debate! His attempt to badger the president was disgusting. He was acting like he was the head cheese at one of his Bain companies. Were any of the TV commentators watching the same debate that I was?
