Third Debate: Snap Polls

David Jackson reports at USA Today:
President Obama won Monday's foreign policy debate in a pair of instant polls, one of them decisively.
In a survey by CBS News, 53% awarded the debate to Obama, to 23% for Republican Mitt Romney and 24% undecided.
An instant CNN poll found a closer closer contest, with 48% favoring Obama and 40% going with Romney, and the remainder undecided.
Now both campaigns will be looking to other polls to see if the debate moves actual votes. Election Day is two weeks away.
The CBS survey did include some good news for Romney, in that "both candidates enjoyed a bump regarding whom the voters trust to handle international crisis."
