    Do you think Obama will be more prepared for the next debate.
    If he does a better job next time - will that make him shine in the polls.

    Other thoughts?

    The next debate could be hard to predict, it is a much different format. I found this article about the second debate;


    Is it possible to front-load the audience? Could persons in the audience be specially picked to ask extremely difficult or embarrassing questions of either candidate?

    This next debate is going to be wild.

    It would be hard for Obama to NOT do a better job. :laugh:

    However, his style is to speak slowly and get down into the minutiae of policy. In other words, boring. Obama: "And.....ah.......now......we see.....ah..."

    Romney has the ability to quickly think on his feet and can answer questions more concisely. Romney: "There's three things to look at..." [and then reels them off.]

    Obama has the ability to look more empathic than Romney, but Romney will look more prepared. I disagree that Romney looks stiff. I think the Town Hall format will favor Romney. Should be a good show.

    The next debate will be a town hall format, so the audience will more than likely filled up with a liberal majority.

    I expect obama to go for the jugular, in attack mode, rather than defend his weak, failed policies. Mitt Romney better be prepared, because obama and his minions will lie, steal, cheat, do anything to hang onto power. They have even earlier circulated a memo to "kill Romney." The left will stop at nothing to retain power.

    That they out and out lie is an understatement.

    I totally agree. Obama and his advisors will not let that happen again. That is why we cannot afford to put any stock on the election outcome in the first debate. One must act like they are in the fight of their lives until election day.
