Romney Supporters React to First Presidential Debate


Republicans in Lansing gathered together for a viewing party of the first presidential debate between Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama.  Before the debate began, many Romney supporters were nervous about their candidates performance, but after its conclusion were much more confident.

"All of the people tweeting about this and the people writing about it later will give Romney a very favorable debate," said Romney Campaign volunteer Caroline Nagy.

Questions in this first debate focused on domestic, mostly economic issues. MSU College Republicans Cody Hibbs, who attended the viewing party, sais this tipped the advantage to Romney.

"You elect a president fot the next four years.  Make up your mind in four years from now what the issues need to be but right now this country needs an economic genius like Mitt Romney in charge," Hibbs said.

President Obama has a slight edge in the polls in Michigan, however after the first debate, Romney supporter Nick Sowers believes Romney's performance could be a difference maker in the polls.

"Some people were on the teeter totter a little bit about Mitt Romney but if you look at how he's answering his questions, his specificity, the level of care and passion that he's showing, I really do think it's going to make a difference," said Sowers.
