Republican pollster says Kerry gained 5 points in Ohio from debate

The Boca Rotan (FL) News reported today that Strategic Visions, one of the Republican's polling firms, admitted that Kerry got a substantial boost in the swing states from the debates. In particular, SV attributed the gains to Kerry's positive performance and Bush's negative performance on stem cell research, prescription drugs and importing Canadian drugs, and Medicare.

According to SV, Kerry got a 4 point boosts in Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa, plus a 5 point jump in Ohio. SV doesn't have this data on their web site yet, so details are missing.

However, it should be noted that SV's polls are notorious for their sharp skewing toward Republican candidates, so admitting this jump in Kerry's numbers represents quite a revealing development in the race.
