Obama Determined to Win Back Female Voters

Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

A source close to the campaign said that the president will not take a tender approach this go-round. He also mentioned that the president will likely bring up Romney’s “47-percent” remarks.

President Obama is also rumored to negate claims Romney made during the first debate such as Romney’s insistence on covering pre-existing conditions in his health-care program.

Romney has also spent the past few days brushing up on the town hall debate format in which audience members can ask the candidates questions. Candidates may answer the questions directly to the audience member rather than the moderator.

The town hall format has been met with some challenges in previous debates. During the 2008 campaign, Sen. John McCain’s pacing on stage became comedic ammunition for a “Saturday Night Live” parody. On the other hand, the audience-engagement format proved to be an advantage for former president Bill Clinton during the 1992 debate against President George H.W. Bush.

Despite the second debate’s more engaging format, tonight’s face-off will abide by a 21-page document of rules which were published on Monday in Time Magazine. Audience members will not be allowed to ask follow-up questions and President Obama and Romney have agreed to not direct questions to each other.
