I think many people would say President Obama. People have a way of comparing this to that. Having said that, President Obama didn't do very well last debate and lost it. So, this time around, when you compare his performance on this debate versus the last one....a vast improvement - he won.
I think Governor Romney did well last night, and he did well in the previous debate. Personally I think it was a draw, but like I said, President Obama did much better than his last debate.
The most important issue to me personally is who will get our economy back on track? Who will get our fellow citizens employed? What is their plan, and is it realistic? Being in the financial services business, a majority of my clients are small business owners, and neither party has really done much for them. Major corporations and banks have been the primary beneficiaries of any help offer from the government - republicans and democrats. Help small businesses with access to capital, incentives to employ, and whoever decides to do this, will help more than all the rhetoric that can be leveled by either party. Reasons, Hopes, don't count, results do. Produce results and you won't have to justify anything. They will speak for themselves.
