Just about everybody believes Mitt Romney won the first presidential debate last night. National Journal points to a couple of new polls out this morning backing that up. I keep flipping over to MSNBC just to watch them mope. I know, we shouldn’t all be doing the Snoopy dance because we still have a few more debates and then an election to win, but still.
