President Barack Obama gets his second chance tonight to convince undecided voters to vote for him after a lackluster performance two weeks ago with Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The two are debating at Hofstra University in a town hall meeting-style debate.
“Obama needs to convey a greater sense of urgency and dedication to address the problems the nation faces,” said Edward Hinck, director of forensics at Central Michigan University. “Political commentators will be describing this as style, tone, energy, dynamism—aspects of personality that Romney displayed in the first debate and was lacking, for the most part, in Obama’s performance.”
Polls have been showing that the gap between the two candidates is tightening, so experts say that this is a critical debate.
