To set the table for tomorrow nights debate one only has to look at the weekend polls to see what is riding on the outcome.
Essentially we now have a presidential horse race where even the potential votes in the so-called swing states are showing the two contestants neck and neck.
This is surprising to some because Obama was so far ahead on the eve of their first debate.
But then he tanked.
We then had the Vice Presidents debate which by all accounts was a tie.
This brings us to Tuesday nights debate where voters,pollsters and pundit will be watching with baited breath.
1) Romney has to keep up the attack on the Obama record and show the electorate why he is the best leader to put their hopes and dreams with.
2) Obama has to awaken from his coma. If you recall he sat back in round one and let Romney bring the fight to him.He has to state very clearly what his vision for the country is for the next four years.
3) As this is a town hall type debate both candidates will take questions from the voters. This is where Obama usually excels and Romney does not. Obama has a history of being better able to interact with the voters where as Romney tends to be a little gaffe prone.
This should be an interesting night!
My feeling as I have said before is that Obama’s heart is not in the job and if it were up to him he would quit. If Romney brings it to him professionally and aggressively look for Obama to sit back and give up.
If I were on team Democrat I would be worried.
What about you?
