It seems as if Mitt Romney’s aggressive approach and fabricated truths have helped him claim a victory over President Obama at the first presidential debate, as well as gain new ground in the polls.

Reuters reports their new poll shows that Romney is now viewed positively for first time in the campaign, has more support among Republican voters, and leads Obama 48 to 43 percent.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 536 registered voters after the debate, and also reveals that 51 percent view him positively, while Obama’s favorability rating remained the same at 56 percent.  

Reuters reports:

Voters now see Romney as a better bet to boost the economy, spur job creation and manage the budget deficit, the poll found. He narrowed Obama’s advantage on taxes, the Social Security retirement program and the Medicare health insurance program for the elderly and disabled.

Even though the debate helped boost Romney’s favorability, it didn’t hurt Obama, according to Reuters:

Obama’s favorability ratings remained unchanged, as 56 percent said they viewed him favorably and 44 percent said they viewed him unfavorably. His standing improved among independents by 8 percentage points.

Romney did gain ground, and won the first battle, but the war is not over!
