Which candidate do you expect to perform better in tonight’s debate?

They are lowering expectations to make themselves look better during the debate. A classic tactic.
The teleprompter myth is getting so tired....
Actually, Romney is the more practiced debater, especially recently. He'll still blow it, though.
Romney. Obama is screwed if there are any questions about his record
So this is not " prepared" compared to the debates with McCain ?? GET A CLUE
Obama outsourcing jobs to china ??? Really??? Romney outsourced jobs to china in his own company to sweatshops to make a bigger profit. Get real!!!
Obama will lie and gloss over things. He's a schmoozer and will do well if you only look at the surface.
I am a republican but I expect Obama to perform well in the debate. It's his strength.
Hey, I can insult too. You are an incompetent who has no ideas how economies work.
Much more likely to have weighted questions from the media personalities moderating the debates.
News flash: it's not just the app that's red. This is a conservative country. The silent majority doesn't make as much fuss as the liberals on TV, but they do know how to balance a checkbook.
Obama. He's had more practice, and Romney tends to say questionable things
I'm surprised looking at the map knowing how heavily rep this app is....
Uh, because THAT'S more important than solving the issues. Yeah, charisma really helped out over the last four years with the economy and foreign affairs......just sayin
If King Husayn can't dictate terms then he doesn't do well. Knowing how dirty he is there is most likely an insider that fed him the questions already so he could script his answers.
Well the mass media will no doubt act as if Obama performed best regardless of what actually happens
The myth of Obama's oratorical skills will die tonight. He is capable of lecturing in a pompous manner with a script in front of him. He is petulant and childish when criticized and THAT is going to happen. Romney will come off as more presidential as Obama makes excuses for the last four years.
I wouldn't say that! Turds have warmth and purpose!
Obama misspeaks less often, and tends to more frequently answer questions directly as opposed to avoiding or misunderstanding them. He comes across as more eloquent and intelligent, whether he is or not.
Obama has a clue - unlike Mitt the Twit!!
The republicans know Romney is about as charismatic and a wet turd right?
Obama can stand up there and throw up all over the stage, the media is still going to say he won the debate.
Oh, Romney's a fine speaker, I can just never hear him over the foot perpetually shoved in his mouth.
Obama without his teleprompter? It's going to be a (figurative) massacre.
Obama is a much better speaker
Before you vote Obama, realize there is no teleprompter.
Gary Johnson amirite?
Both candidates have been talking down about their debate skills.
Romney is going to destroy Obama.
Not only with just Obamas record, but with facts. Romney is a MUCH better
Debater. And of course, Barak will not have his TelePrompTer. History shows when he wings it without writers he usually says the wrong thing.
Exactly beltway. It's pretty sad when people choose substance (Romney) over looks. (Obama)
Couldn't agree more. Wherever he speaks, his audience seems to experience the steady rush of an Obamagasm!
No way. Obama sucks at debating. He admitted it this week.
Obama will give him a beating even without a teleprompter, that s just there for the assurance. Obama is a really good speaker and debater. Obama and Axelrod know what they are doing and know their stuff, and are running a good campaign. Biden, however, is nothing compared to them.
Obama will preform better, however seals preform too. I want neither as president. Biden is disgusting I don't want him a heartbeat away from the Presidentency.
Obama is a masterful speaker and debater. We've had 4 years of this clever talker, and we need more than that from our president.
Romney is most likely going to either try to moderate the debate himself by getting all pissy about the rules, or make a wager with Obama about some petty point. He might even do both.
I think they both will do well. Romney may have the edge. He's been debating for a year now, some 20 in all. But like I've said before the President don't have to win, just look good.
When did a debate change from the contrast of ideas into a high school popularity contest? Are we that far gone? Should we all just wait for our chocolate rations and watch Hunny Boo Boo?
Romney. Obama has a LOT of stuff he needs to tackle.
I don't like Obama but he is a ham and can deliver a speech so I voted for him.
Not an Obama fan at all but I'll give credit where credit is due... He is a great public speaker... Even I don't agree with most of what he says lol
Easiest way Romney can smash O in all three debates? Compare records. Forget tapes, rumors, gaffes, etc. Simply compare the FACTS in REALITY. Check mate. The end. President Romney!
IMHO he's also the better debater. The only time he's a decent politician is when he's debating. Of course, that's assuming he doesn't make any $10K bets. :)
Obama is a better speaker he will preform better but Romney would be a better president.
Romney, only because he has to. His campaign is on the line.
Obama is a finely polished speaker and exudes confidence. Romney acts like he's fighting an uphill battle and will most probably overcompensate. Either candidate that hesitates will lose.
People think that charisma (Advantage: Obama) counts more than content (Advantage: Romney).
Obama won't have a Teleprompter!!
I don't understand why the polls show (in SoH) that more people say they will agree with Romney, yet the majority thinks O will win? Ummmm... People, if you like what Romney says BETTER, then HE wins. Maybe you guys are going to listen to who the MEDIA decides is the winner? Wtf?
