Instant Twitter Reaction to the Third Presidential Debate: Foreign Policy

This has proven true in the first two debates we’ll see how well the candidates listen to the public. I really think both candidates lose when they violate these ideas:

    Goals achieved by Romney tonight to keep his momentum going:

    1. Look and sound presidential–check.
    2. Avoid gaffes–check.

    He clearly understood he didn’t have to win debate points, he had to win the presidency.

      I think we have seen Romney able to take command when needed. He’s been pretty much flawless through October thus far. Sure, he’s pulled a few punches, but that’s important.

      What’s funny is that Obama wanted to make this a referendum on Romney. Romney turned that on its head by looking like a strong incumbent, forcing Obama to be the aggressor.

      This debate saw Romney do exactly what he needed. The man mines data and is supremely confident because he’s seen his internal polling. This is a candidate that is confident and in control. He and the GOP have a financial advantage in the final two weeks and, frankly, they have a better GOTV operation. They also have far more third party groups working on GOTV as well.

      My gut is telling me we may see R+1 or R+2 nationally and that would turn this into a laugher.

        Do you have an idea in how the absentee ballot situation is going for us in Ohio in terme of closing the gap amongst early voters?
