Week of: October 22 – October 29, 2012
Synopsis: A different President Obama showed up to the 2nd debate and Mitt Romney gives birth to another meme. Patrick joins me as we discuss confusing polls, the best moments of the debate and other politicking.
At the 2nd Presidential debate, a significantly more assertive (and awake) president Obama showed up and appeared to keep Mitt Romney on his heels for the duration of the evening…leading to some memorable moments and an opponent who was consistently kept on defense and who repeatedly needed to cede his time (that was supposed to be spent answering audience questions) responding to an Obama that was clearly on offense.
I am joined by Patrick, as we dissect the debate and some of the more interesting exchanges. We also break down some confusing and inconsistent polling on a micro level, in order to shed some light on why some of the battleground states have consistently remained in the President’s column and why Romney has not be able to break through in some of them.
This week we put on our politico hats and give an honest assessment of this year’s election, why polls may be irrelevant (regardless of who they favor), how women may determine the outcome and how the elections in this country have changed…mostly for the worse.
A lot of interesting topics are covered in this nearly 3-hour conversation and we think you will walk away with more than a few new things to consider.
Enjoy the show!
