Presidential Debate 2012 Candidates will answer the Voters: The most exciting Presidential Debate so far is here – the presidential candidates will be talking to the general public and voters in today’s event. Both Obama and Romney will have a much awaited face to face question-answer session with the voters.
The candidates will face a real challenge at the town hall today where more than a dozen voters will be seated in close proximity to the candidates. The voters can cast any kind of question they like, and millions of other voters will watch from their homes. This will be a very crucial yet heart wrenching debate for Obama and Romney.
This form of presidential debate was introduced in year 1992 when Bill Clinton and George Bush were competing for the White House. That year the debate proved to be an almost game changer as it clearly set out the dissimilarities between the two candidates for the office.
However this year the race is a bit different. Reigning President Barack Obama must act very presidential in tonight’s debate, not to mention he must also be very promising. Continuing his presidential reign for another four years is a big challenge, and there have been only a few presidents who have done that in the past.
Mitt Romney has been depicted by the Democrats’ campaign as a heartless chief executive who sits on his wealth. In addition, the Republican candidate’s image is suffering after a video of him acting very pompous and petty was leaked on the internet. Though the voters have no solid proof that Romney is so insensitive, they are still looking a little apprehensive. Romney needs to put his foot down and break the apprehension, and show that he can connect with the average American voters like a worthy commander in chief.
Barack Obama will also face a tough challenge this year. Last time around he had the ‘change’ campaign helping him out. For the 2012 presidential campaign Obama needs to find something equally powerful and convincing.
