Mitt Romney enters second presidential debate as front-runner

Online Staff Report

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will enter the second presidential debate against President Barack Obama Oct. 16 as the front-runner in the race for the White House.

Romney has gained in many national polls since Obama delivered what many considered a lackluster performance in the first presidential debate Oct. 3.

An Oct. 14 Gallup Tracking poll showed Romney leading 49-47 percent and an Oct. 15 Rasmussen Tracking poll showed Romney leading 49-48 percent. Meantime, an Oct. 15 ABC News/Washington Post poll had Obama leading 49-46 percent and an Oct. 15 Politico/GWU/Battleground poll had Obama leading 49-48 percent.

Obama has pledged to be more aggressive in the next presidential debate after being what he called “too polite” in the first debate. However, some have suggested Obama’s losing grip on the lead in the polls is the result of a feeling among voters that Obama has failed to lead the country to a swift and full economic recovery.

Romney and Obama will square off in the second debate of the season from 8 to 9:30 p.m. (Central), Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley will serve as moderator. The debate will be a town hall meeting format, including foreign and domestic policy issues.

The final presidential debate of the season will be from 8 to 9:30 p.m. (Central), Monday, Oct. 22, at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. Moderator will be Bob Schieffer, host of CBS’s Face the Nation. Topic will be foreign policy.

The Nov. 6 General Election is now 21 days away.

    Once again, the next US presidential election will be fixed. Mitt Romney will be elected even though Barack Obama would have received more votes in the 2012 election. The political assassination will be perpetrated by Bush hiding behind Crossroads GPS, the most influential group of Neocons.

    The Neocons will have Mitt Romney elected to first use him and then let him fall easy prey. All blames and responsibilities will fall on the new Mormon president for the events already planned.

    Would not the title be better saying the race is tied not the Mitt Romney is front-runner? Just a little misleading.
