Obama Romney Debate

October 3, 2012 by  

Obama Romney Debate, Just 34 days out from the November election, there’s little argument that tonight’s presidential debate – in which President Obama and Mitt Romney will go head-to-head for the first time in this campaign – is a high-stakes affair for both men.

With polls increasingly showing Mr. Obama leading Romney by varying degrees, both nationally and in battleground states, the Colorado match-up offers each candidate a critical opportunity: For the president, it’s a chance to shore up his support and solidify what appears to be a recent advantage; Romney, meanwhile, has perhaps his best remaining shot at seizing a much-needed boost in momentum after a disappointing couple of months.

“The stakes are enormous for Mitt Romney,” said Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist who served as a top adviser to 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain. “He goes into the debate behind, after a difficult summer, a failed convention, and a series of self-inflicted wounds in September. The hour is growing short to make up ground and come from behind in the swing states where he needs to win if he wants to become elected president.”

One debate may not be enough for Romney to take over the lead, analysts say, but a strong performance tonight could certainly put him on the right path – a fact both that will surely weigh deeply on the minds of both candidates.

“I don’t think Romney can change the entire trajectory of the campaign at the debate,” said Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons. “But he can jump-start that change.”
