Debate Bounce: Undecided Voters Breaking for Obama

Taegan Goddard of Political Wire cites a new Ipsos/McClatchy poll showing that, since Tuesday night's second Presidential debate in Nashville, undecided voters are breaking for Democrat Barack Obama.  Prior to the debate, undecideds were leaning to Republican John McCain by 55% to 45% over Obama.  Now, however, voters identifying themselves as still not fully decided are leaning Obama 57% to McCain's 43%.

In a related item, Goddard also reports that two polls released today confirm what the flash polls indicated immediately following Tuesday night's encounter: Obama won.

USA Today:  Obama 56%, McCain 23%

Rasmussen: Obama 45%, McCain 28%
