PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE | REACTION

Your tweets and insights: What voters said about the debate

 

FROM DEBATE WATCH PARTY AT BARRY UNIVERSITY:

“Romney gave you a full explanation as to what he is doing. President Barack Obama did not give you a full explanation.” - Benjamin Otero, Cutler Bay

“My views on the president are always going to be the same no matter what. I am a college student. I have to support the president because he is definitely supporting me.” - Xavier Swane, Miami Shores

“Mitt Romney has a new way of looking at things. We need a change, the whole change thing Obama was talking about in 2008, he did not bring it.” - Geronimo Guevara, Puerto Rico

FROM MEMBERS OF PUBLIC INSIGHT NETWORK:

“I don’t think that Romney has sufficiently explained himself, but I don’t know if he can do it within the context of this debate.” - Sue Pinsley, 61 Republican, Miami

“Romney was bombastic. The visual is sometimes more effective than the substance. Romney was louder, gesticulated more, and threw out empty promises.” - Andrew Leone, 52 Democrat, Fort Lauderdale

“I thought that Romney did extremely well, I thought if you judge overall the entire debate, if you’re gonna pick winners or losers, he definitely won...” - Joseph Murray, 76 Independent, Doral
