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.

After the debates, Obama’s new advertisement criticizes McCain’s economic knowledge. McCain’s new advertisement highlights the differing opinions on troop funding held by Obama and his vice presidential candidate, Joe Biden.
