    Who will win the Presidential debate Tuesday night?

    I expect Obama will do much better Tuesday night in the town hall format he can't do worse but Romney will still school him. What do you think?

    Navy, I hate to say this, but I think Obama will take it....unless he overcompensates for his poor performance in Debate #1...then he could come off looking the arrogant fool. But if he's on point? If he's done his homework and the air's not too thin? I think he'll probably walk away the winner.

    Probably Obama. I don't expect him to lose two in a row. Of course, winning a debate has a lot to do with style and little to do with substance.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Agreed Maggie. Obama knows a second lousy outing will doom him barring another secret Romney tape even worse than the 47% one. He has to win and he knows it. And he will.

    I don't believe that Obama has ever faced a debater like Romney.....No teleprompter Obama loses.

    What many fail to realize is that Obama will have to rely on saying the right things in the right way (which will be difficult for him considering his record) but Romney needs only to be who he is and say what he believes and he will prevail. If not in the debate assessment, then at the polls.

    Romney FTW!

    Prediction: Republicans will insist Romney won, Democrats will insist Obama won.

    In the end the race will be completely unaffected.

    I hope you really do not believe that. It is beyond naive.

    Re: Who will win the Presidential debate Tuesday night?

    I think Romney will win. It all depends on the questions and whether the questioners are biased or not This is supposedly a format with the questions being asked by a group of undecided voters. How they get picked, I don't know.

    Off teleprompter, Obama becomes who he is. I think he is so ideological that it is difficult for him to outright lie. Romney is generally who he is.

    Social issues tend to be Obama's strong points, so I think he will take this one.
