Unsurprisingly, there was a sharp partisan split in judging the second debate performance. Democrats gave the president an 88-4 percent advantage, while Republicans favored Romney 78-9 percent. But the president carried independents, winning 54-33 percent among those who said they did not affiliate with either party.
The poll was conducted in the two days following Tuesday's debate, and carried a margin of error of 4 points.
