Mitt Romney isn’t leaving it up to the critics to decide who won the presidential debates—he’s making an executive decision. “You know they have really propelled our campaign,” Romney told a crowd in Nevada on Wednesday. “We’re seeing that across the country. People are coming together. At the same time, I think, in some respects, they’ve diminished the president’s campaign.” The GOP contender went on to say that his jobs plan is what will clinch the deal for him and asserted that he would win this election. An ABC News/Washington Post poll this week showed Romney with a slight lead over Obama at 49–48.
