I'm not sure about that. If anything, Obama handily beating Romney in a debate may have made it seem like even more of a pointless exercise since Obama was already ahead in the polls.

Romney needed the debates to try to make a dent in Obama's lead - I'm sure he knew that he had to come out swinging and going on the attack, which is just what he did. While I laud him for executing the strategy, the facts paid dearly, and while he may have "won" on "style" according to MSM pundits, the fact-checkers are tearing him apart:
