Tonight, President Obama and Mitt Romney face off for the last presidential debate. The debate will focus exclusively on foreign policy, and topics could include Libya and China. CBS News’s Bob Schieffer is moderating the debate.
Two new polls show that seventy percent of Latinos are supporting the President. In one poll, 25% support Romney, and in another poll, 21% support Mitt Romney. Voter enthusiasm is also up among Latinos. On a scale of one-to-ten, 68% of likely Latino voters rate their enthusiasm as a 9 or 10. This is up from last month, but down from 2008 levels.
The New Yorker editorial board has endorsed President Obama. In an editorial, that discuss his achievements in the past four years. They also say he has improved America’s standing since the Bush Administration. But, the board admits he has failed on some fronts, such as climate change, and Guantanamo.
