    Are you likely to be swayed by tonight's presidential debate considering its foreign policy focus?

    Tonight's debate between President Obama and Governor Romney will focus on foreign policy issues.  Is this debate likely to sway your vote?  Or will you likely base your vote on issues closer to home?

    I will be watching the debate tonight, I feel that foreign policy is an important consideration when voting for a president.  I will be interested in hearing what both candidates have to say on this important topic, but it is unlikely to affect my decision on November 6th.  I have already made up my mind and it would have to be a real bombshell revelation to change my mind.

    I have already made up my mind as well...I feel we have heard a lot about foriegn policy and not nearly enough about domestic issues...educations, healthcare, infrastructure, renewable energies and oil and Gas, and fiscal policy...but not the same talking points, but actual details...If Romney wins is he cutting the tax credits that support education, the tax credits for mortgages, marriage, etc.? An actual real answer.. not a bunch of talking around the subject..vague number (I believe he threw $25000 in deductions out there in the last debate) is that a real number he intends to use? And with Obama, I would like to hear what he can tell us about Lybia. I understand that there are certain intelligence issues or secret missions that can not be discussed, naturally, but I would like a clear explanation on the refusal of more security...

    No already made up my mind, but will tune in. I really think the nine or ten  undecided voters in this country wont be any further along after this than they are now.

    Absolutely not! It's also my contention that ANYONE claiming to be undecided at this late stage in the game is either (1) lying, or (2) part of the "moron" vote. Let's face it...after four years of Obama, we now know what he's about, and Romney's background as a governor and businessman is no secret either. Tonight's debate may be interesting and/or informative, but a deciding way.

    Since I have already cast my vote, obviously, tonight's debate won't matter to me one way or the other.  However, I have a pretty clear understanding of how both men feel about foreign policy and frankly would never vote for a man who wants to lead us back into another war, as Romney has indicated he would.  I've had enough war to last me a lifetime, and I'm sick of it.
