HEMPSTEAD, United States, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama outperformed his Republican challenger Mitt Romney Tuesday evening at their second debate, pulling almost even their support in the last stretch of this election cycle.
The debate, a town-hall style face-off between the two candidates, saw a more aggressive and animated Obama, whose lackluster performance in the first debate on Oct. 3 prompted the question: does he want the job or not?
But he was met with an evenly invigorated Romney, whose commanding performance last time shifted the election's momentum to his side.
