Presidential Debate Poll: Who Won Round 2, Why?

There was consensus that Barack Obama blew the first presidential debate nearly two weeks ago. Did the president slow Gov. Romney's gathering momentum Tuesday night?

The pressure on President Barack Obama and former governor Mitt Romney was evident Tuesday night as they faced questions from 82 undecided Long Island voters less than three weeks before Election Day. The candidates sparred over their positions on energy, taxes, immigration, guns and foreign policy—frequently interrupting each other as the moderator struggled to keep the debate on track. 

Who do you think made the strongest case? Will the Romney upswing that started after the Oct. 3 debate continue, or did the president's performance turn the tide?

I have always thought Obamas very presence has hurt the economy. People are learning of what he is doing. Business owners holding back and not hiring because of Obamacare, etc....if he is gone, people will feel more confident again. He needs to go.

Sorry, didn't mean to call you Jill. I am still on my first cup of coffee!! It think that the fact that Rosanne is on our ballot shows that our country is in a world of hurt. We are a joke! I am so glad my parents are not here to see this and all of my uncles who went to war to fight for the very freedom some people take for granted.
