MILWAUKEE - A number of different polls have come out regarding the results of Tuesday night's second Presidential debate, and their results vastly differ.

A national poll conducted by CNN said that President Barack Obama had a 46 percent to 39 percent edge over GOP challenger Mitt Romney.

CBS News' poll had Mr. Obama beating Mr. Romney, 37 to 30 percent.

One involving TODAY'S TMJ4's Facebook page, as of 5:30 a.m., had Mitt Romney winning the debate, 56 percent to 44 percent.

Whether those results translate to a win in November is yet to be seen.

The electoral vote tracker on USA Today's web site says that President Obama has a five vote edge, 196-191 over Mr. Romney, but the winner needs at least 270 electoral votes.

CNN's electoral vote tracker has the President up 237 to 191.
