Editorial: Last debate said to be neck-and-neck
By Vicky Padilla
The presidential debates between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney have had many Americans glued to their TV, or in some cases not. Gov. Romney and President Obama have debated on their political views on abortion, war, terrorism, and the trillion-dollar debt.
Based on the polls by Gallup.com, women in swing states center their priorities on gender. Female voters state that the most important issue for women is abortion. Gallup.com also discovered that male votes would be based on jobs.
The latest debate that took place on Oct. 22 was said to be neck-and-neck between the candidates. There were interruptions, talk overs, finger pointing, and even the occasional, “He’s lying!” Many can agree that this debate was one of the most intense debates during this election.
The way they convey their opinions will be the factor that determines who will become the president of the United States.
