BOCA RATON, FL – With fifteen days left in a deadlocked presidential contest, ninety minutes on Monday night could prove pivotal.
When President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney meet in their third debate tonight in Boca Raton, Fla., it will be their final chance to show a side-by-side comparison to millions of Americans in an election that appears to be teetering delicately in the balance. The candidates have faced off primarily over domestic issues in their two previous encounters but tonight's debate, moderated by CBS News' Bob Schieffer, is supposed to focus on foreign policy and the next president's role as Commander-in-Chief.
With the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing a race in which Romney and Obama are tied at 47 percent among likely voters, a verbal miscue or a fumble on the details of extremely complex world affairs issues could be calamitous.
While the campaign will turn to the hand-to-hand combat over key states and counties for the next two weeks, it's unlikely either candidate will have another opportunity to reach as many voters as they will during Monday's debate.
