Politics: On the trail

A national poll taken about the U.S. presidential debates reveals that the majority of Americans think Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential candidate, won the debate. However, the poll also shows that participants think both Sen. John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate, or Obama would make good presidents.
