First Debate Results

The first 2008 Presidential debate appears to have helped John McCain more the Barak Obama. McCain, who has been in a slide for the last week, appears to have helped -- at least temporarily -- provide support for his campaign by his performance tonight.

As seen in the simultaneous trade-by-trade Presidential Futures Market contracts for both McCain and Obama during the course of the debate, it is clear that traders saw McCain's performance as better than Obama. 

Of interest are the two moments during the debate (8:34 CDT and 9:11 CDT) at which there were significant reversals in both candidate's trading positions.

Who won the debate? McCain or Obama? Who made the strongest comments? Who swayed from previous statements? Who was the strongest? Who is a true leader?
