Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ok, last poll numbers for tonight:

infratest dimap asked 1300 viewers between 10.00 and 10.30 CET:

Was the debate useful for your decision?

Undecided: Yes 46 - 52 No

Who was more convincing?

Undecided: Schröder 56 - 19 Merkel

Quite impressive, also if you take into account that Schröder was - personally - more popular anyway. But in this year's campaign, personality played a minor role - at least until today. I would wait with further comments about the impact of the debate until tomorrow when spinning might have had some effect.
