Last night, ColorOfChange tuned in along with millions of other Americans to watch President Obama and Governor Romney face off in the first presidential debate of 2012 at the University of Denver in Denver, CO. The debate focused on domestic policy but seemed to get stuck primarily on healthcare and the economy (specifically as it relates to taxes).
To commemorate the night, we hosted a Twitter party where we asked,
Your responses were illuminating— you highlighted the many ways that the candidates skirted the issues that continue to plague our community. We've listed just a few here:
The next presidential debate will be held on October 16 in a town hall meeting format at Hoffstra University in Hempstead, NY. Undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. What questions would you like to ask the candidates? Let us know in the comments.
