The first of the television debates are now over.
A Guardian/ICM poll released shortly after suggested that

– 46% of those questioned thought that Ed Miliband had won.
However in an age of new media technologies, a twitter poll conducted by DEMOS suggests that Ed Miliband had actually won.

Nigel Farage appeared to be rooting for Ed Miliband. (He was earlier pictured with a glass of red wine).
