They came, they listened and they debated, but who actually conquered during the first presidential debate is the real question, and one that will carry into the morning after.
While pundits on both sides of the aisle dissect Wednesday night’s volley between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney in order to declare a “winner,” we’d rather get your take, Tampa Bay. We want to know which candidate resonated most with you on such important domestic issues as the economy, jobs, taxes, energy policies, health care and more.
Do you agree with President Obama’s statement that “we’ve begun to fight our way back” from what he characterized as the “worst financial crisis since the Great Depression?” Are you more inclined to agree with Gov. Romney’s assertion that current policies are “crushing the middle class?”
Who do you think did the best overall? Which candidate do you think won the debate? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
Did you miss the night’s debate? Don’t worry, you’ll have two more chances to see the presidential contenders square off. Next up is the Oct. 16 town hall-style showdown on domestic and foreign policies at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. That debate will air on most major television networks from 9 to 10:30 p.m.
The vice presidential candidates will also square off on Oct. 3 on domestic and foreign policies. That debate takes place in Danville, KY, and airs from 9 to 10:30 p.m.
