Who Won the Final Debate? Drudge Votes Early...

In the words of Amy Poehler's Katie Couric, "again, and not to belabor the point," but in regard to the Drudge Report's erratic -- even by neoconservative standards -- coverage of the final campaign push, exactly what, may I ask, is the purpose of conducting a poll on "Who won the final presidential debate before that final presidential debate is ended?

I knew early voting would be factor this year -- I guess I just didn't realize it would come to this.

The results, however, are not surprising. According to Drudge's Mid-Debate Post-Debate Winner's Poll, John McCain is the overwhelming winner of tonight's still-running presidential debate. As of 10:22 EST, the Republican wins handily, 75 percent to 23 percent.

McCain wins the debate before the debate is over? Wow, that is mavericky.
