Presidential Debate Winner: President Obama by Far

Here we go... round 2 of the Romney vs. Obama presidential debates, covered LIVE beginning at 9pm EST from Hofstra University.

The debate will again cover domestic policy, but in a town hall setting where the moderator, Candy Crowley, will be taking questions from the audience while at the same time following up on those questions with those of her own.  This is arguably the toughest debate President Obama will have to deal with.

All eyes will be on the President as he tries to make up for his lackluster performance during the first debate.  Can he pull off a resounding victory and sway the now dead-even polls back in his favor?

For one thing, it will be tough to not look like he's trying too hard to impress people.  His thoughts, words, and demeanor will need to look natural; reminiscent of the fire he had when he was first running for office four years ago.

Hopefully his gusto will return, and I won't have to drink myself stupid at the end of the debate, since a Mitt Romney victory will move him even closer to the oval office. The American people better pray the President comes back strong, or get ready to bend over in November...

The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. Candidates each will have 2 minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion. The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.
