A CNN/ORC International Poll following Monday's presidential debate found those who watched the third and final debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney did not identify a clear winner.

Debate viewers split 48% for Obama and 40% for Romney in the poll, with a margin within the sampling error of plus or minus 4.5%.

Max Blumenthal, a journalist for Al Jazeera, stated:"The real winner of debate is Israel....this level of pandering was not present in the 1980s." Israel was mentioned 34 times during the presidential debate.
