Newscast Media WASHINGTONAccording to the State Department, Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will face off in three 90-minute debates this October, giving still-undecided voters their best chance to compare the two side by side, and allowing all viewers to watch the candidates as they respond to tough questions and react to unscripted moments on live television.

The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), which sponsors and produces the contests, has announced the first debate will occur October 3 in Denver and will focus on U.S. domestic issues; the second will be held October 16 in Hampstead, New York, and will have a town hall format, where undecided voters will ask the questions. The final debate will be in Boca Raton, Florida, on October 22 and will focus on U.S. foreign policy.

The CPD has also planned an October 11 vice presidential debate in Danville, Kentucky, between Vice President Biden and Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan.

All four candidates will be taking time away from the campaign trail to devote to preparation, including practice debates with stand-ins who will try to copy the styles and likely arguments of their opponents.

As the 2012 debates approach, the closer President Obama and former Governor Romney are in the public opinion polls, the more attention voters and the news media will be paying to the contests, and the pressure on each candidate will be high. It is not only one of their best and last chances to win voters, but it is also a huge opportunity to erode support as the result of a mistake or a wrongly worded response.             Add Comments>>
