Did President Obama really win this week's debate? New poll results show Mitt Romney trumped the President in an area that's critical to voters!

According to the Washington Post, in this election, the economy is still the main thing. "Polls asking voters to rank the issues they hold as the most important show that the economy remains at the top of the list, " said the paper.

And if the economy is the 'main thing' then Mitt Romney won Tuesday's debate, hands down! says Larry Kudlow.

Just look at the latest poll results.

In a brand new CNN/ORC post-debate poll, 58 percent of voters said that Mitt Romney would better handle the economy – the GOP candidate continues to hold an 18-point lead over President Obama on this issue.

A CBS News poll supports the thesis; it found Romney holds a whopping 65 percent to 34 percent advantage on the economy.

And USA Today/Gallup poll from the summer finds that voters, by more than two to one (63-29 percent), prefer Romney's business background to address the country's economic challenges.

Although Romney's plan for the economy is complex – click here to go to Romney's Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth – in a sentence he's advocating a 20 percent tax-reduction plan taking the top rate down from 35 to 28 percent. And he intends to pay for it by reducing loopholes.

That's what the nation needs, insists Larry Kudlow. Romney's knowledge base on the economy is broad and deep, and America knows it.

Mike Ozanian, Forbes Magazine Executive Editor believes the state of the economy will send the GOP candidate all the way to the White House. "This is what wins elections," he said on The Kudlow Report.

White House economist Austan Goolsbee isn't so sure that Romney's message is a winning one. "A new ad also calls Medicare and Social Security into the mix and I'm not sure that Romney should be doing that."
