Presidential debate 2012's first debate airs Oct. 3

President Obama and Governor Romney gear up for Wednesday’s debate

Presidential debate 2012 is the event of the race to the White House, and both President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are preparing for the night that could change everything.

With the presidential debate taking place Oct. 3 in Denver, both candidates are talking to their best advisors and preparing the talking points they need to make in the days before the big face-off. President Obama is in Nevada at a desert resort with his top advisors putting together his strategy against Romney’s arguments, according to the Associated Press.

During a rally in Las Vegas Sept. 30, Obama told supporters that his points would be towards giving American’s hope for their future. “What I’m most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security to hardworking Americans,” Obama said of his plan for the presidential debate.

Romney, who is preparing for the presidential debate that could change the course of the election he is currently behind in, planned to go back to Massachusetts to work with his debate team over the weekend. Romney is trailing Obama in the polls after several setbacks including the leaked tape where he was heard saying it is not his job to worry about the 47 percent of voters who did not pay federal income tax, and in his words, rely on Obama to not take responsibility of themselves.

The first presidential debate is five weeks before Election Day, and the three debates that will occur in October will be Romney’s opportunity to take away from Obama’s lead. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation and predicted this is Romney’s opportunity to change the polls immensely.

“This whole race is going to be turned upside down come Thursday morning,” said Christie

The presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Romney on domestic issues will air Wednesday, Oct. 3 on major news stations nationwide.
