Students Weigh In on Final Debate

On Monday night the MSU debate team held a bi-partisan watch party for the final presidential debate.

Both college and high school students watched the event together.

Carly Wunderlich, Student: "I think honestly there's been a lot of weird pivots, there's been a lot of moments where people are like - what are they talking about now?"

Aniela Butler, Student: "Ya know, Obama really controlled the time in the first question on Libya, unfortunately both candidates didn't seem to talk about Libya all that much."

Ronnie Russell, Student: "I'm really pleased with how Obama has reacted so far. I'm really glad that he came out more on the offensive side and I think that's something that he really needed to do."

Butler: "One of the most interesting points was when Romney said, attacking me is not an agenda. I think one of the biggest questions that people came into this debate with was how aggressive will Obama be, how aggressive will Romney be and I think that's a really poised way to deal with Obama's aggression."

Caleb Goodman, Student: "I think that they've been doing a fairly significant job of avoiding the substance of the questions."

Wunderlich: "I think for the most part that if you are an undecided voter and you are tuned in and you are interested in this-- then you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. It's just a question of whether or not you've taken those opportunities to do so."

With just a little more than 2 weeks left, its now time for voters to decide.
