Have the presidential debates influenced your vote in any way? If so, how?
No. I feel as if they are too scripted and rehearsed. They look at what the polls say, then have their script writers base everything on what they think people want to hear.
Yes, just made me want to vote for Romney more than I already wanted to.
Absolutely not, because I don't watch the fake junk. Keep on hubbing
No. I didn't watch the Corporate Party debates between Obamney and Rombama. Why would I? It's so scripted.
In fact, if you paid any attention to the presidential conventions, both of them were scripted, too. Votes and Roberts Rules of Order no longer exist. They're meaningless. The results have been written in advance and no one is going to stand in the way of those results.
I did, however, check out the 3rd party debates. Far more interesting. They discussed tough topics from questions submitted through social media. Renowned host, Larry King, was moderator. I'd like to think one of these candidates could save America, but most people are so wrapped up in the Corporate Party game they don't see that America is being shredded one Constitutional point at a time. Soon, America will be a name without no meaning -- just another Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia tyranny.
Sad. I kinda liked America. Oh, well.

In the Presidential debates, behind the person asking questions the background is blacked out. Why?
