Les Reviews Sont In
I'm usually way off base on this things, but they do match what I was thinking watching the debate. The obvious disclaimer is that these post-debate polls rarely tell the full story - Harper won the '04 debate but it marked the begining of his tail spin. But the news is good for Dion today.

NDP: 33% improved, 4% worsened
Green: 37% improved, 8% worsened
Bloc: 21% improved, 8% worsened
Tories: 9% improved, 29% worsened
So, the CROP summary is: Duceppe did great but everyone expected him to, Layton was good but didn't really grab anyone, Harper sucked, and Dion gained the most of anyone.
