Poll sponsors said Mitt Romney won the first of the three 2012 presidential debates Wednesday.

CBS News, for example, reported that 46 percent of the 500 uncommitted voters it polled after the debate said Romney won. Only 22 percent said Barack Obama won.

Obama accused Romney of implying that he’d keep the most popular parts of PPACA without actually describing his proposals.

Romney has said, for example, that he wants to provide some kind of help for people with pre-existing conditions, but it’s still not clear whether Romney means he would keep the kinds of protections for those people that are available in PPACA or if he means he would simply preserve the consumer protection provisions already in effect in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Obama said.
