Local Reaction to Presidential Debate

Wednesday night marked the final face off between the two presidential candidates, senators Barack Obama and John McCain.

But some may wonder just how much of an impact the debate has on the actual election.

"I'm sure they'll both try to do the best they can. I'm just not sure who to vote for yet," Richard Dakin from Parkersburg said.

So to help with his decision, Dakin watched John McCain and Barack Obama battle it out one last time.

"It seemed like they just talked to same stuff over and over. I really didn't get nothing out of it," he said.

With election day being so close, and many people already having their minds made up on who they want to vote for, some say this last presidential debate is not a deal breaker.

"It doesn't affect me that much because I pretty much knew who I was going to vote for," James Sager said.

"Really it doesn't make any difference in my decision making, and I pretty much watch them just out of curiosity to see how it goes between the two of them," Shirley Numrich said.

Two candidates with one goal....

"I already had my mind made up," Rick Brown said.

...and many people already knowing which team they're on.

Election day is still a couple of weeks away, so it's okay if you haven't made a decision yet.

    If you had listened really close you would have heard the same old thing from Obama along with trying to defend himself from McCains comment's...WHY?? We have heard the same ole thing from both of them. Once in a while during their "debate's" you will hear what they are going to "do" for us!!! I believe more came from Obama with promise's but Remember neither of them can give "you" anything they promise if it doesn't pass all the "Old Gizzer's" that sit there in Wash. pretending to listen, think and say what is good for the people in their own State. It is our State Representative's that have the final say!!! "Voting" ya know! That is the only way we are going to get what "We" want!!! It starts right here with our State Representative's. Hope you pick the ones that will do the best for our state so they can get us what we want in D.C. Get out there and vote and please don't vote for what you hear Obama or even McCain promise's you may be disappointed when it doesn't "PASS"!!!!
