Undecided Voters on Obama’s Debate Performance: Better, But Not by Much
Political consultant and pollster Frank Luntz met with a group of undecided voters in Las Vegas for their reaction to Tuesday night’s presidential debate, and more specifically, their feelings about President Obama.
For the most part, the group felt Obama had upped his game since the first debate, using such phrases as
“compassionate and convicted,” “concerned about fairness,” “adequate,” and “much better than last time” to describe his performance. However, many of these same undecided voters said he still wasn’t good enough. “It’s hard to believe what he’s saying, because we’ve heard it too many times,” remarked one woman.
One particularly effective response from the president — as voted on by the group — was his answer to a question about women’s issues and fairness in the workplace. “He understands women, he has two daughters,” said one participant. “And he isn’t limited in his thinking by religiosity.”
