Presidential Debate 2012: Obama, Romney Have Final Showdown In Boca Raton

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 10.22.2012 | Politics

Monday night, the Commission On Presidential Debates wraps up the 2012 series of debates with its extra special season finale. When we last left our protagonists, President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, they were, basically, yelling at each other about a host of issues before an audience of undecided voters from whom the questions of the evening were extracted. It made for a sharp series of exchanges and an emphasis on the theatrical. The president, having decided to ditch the somnambulatory techniques he used in his first disastrous debate, showed substantially more verve in his second outing, and has been generally characterized as the winner, on points. But Romney held up decently as well, turning in a performance that conservative pundits could continue to support. Now, they meet one last time, in a debate that decides everything. We guess? Let's just go with that.

Romney's "binders full of women" lie, as fun as it is on the campaign trail and as an Internet meme, is an empty binder Romney used to cut into the president's support among undecided women.

When even a CNN poll, composed of a sample of debate watchers the pollsters freely admit to be 8 percent more Republican than the country as a whole, hands the debate to President Obama by 7 percentage points, you know that Governor Romney has taken something of a beating.
