Question of the Week: Do Presidential Debates Matter?
Do you expect upcoming Presidential and Vice Presidential debates to sway your vote?
The consensus after last week's Presidential debate was that Republican candidate Mitt Romney won the debate with President Barack Obama.
But does that really matter? A recent article in The Washington Post states that analysts differ on the question. Some point to debates with John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, which Kennedy clearly won on style and which may have moved the close election in his favor. Others say a debate win is only a temporary victory. What do you think?
This week, Vice Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Paul Ryan will take on each other on Thursday at 9 p.m. at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. Obama and Romney will meet again on Oct. 16 and 22. Will you be watching?
