Nebraska voters voice opinions after final debate
The third and final Presidential debate could have been the golden ticket for the undecided voters. But what did it mean for the decided? It was a debate set for foreign policy. Even domestic issues found a way to take center stage.
So who scored points with Nebraska voters?
"Obama. He leans more towards a stronger united nations and I don't think that's a good idea," said Tyrell Benson.
"The truth is we weren't impressed with either candidate. Typical debate. When we turned it off we said that's just typical political jargon, it seemed like it was really short on substance," Diane Smit said.
"Did talk a lot about Afghanistan and Iraq and that's two things I would love to see us get out of, but they think they've got to start a government over there that's the trouble with America. They've got to start a government in every country they can, I just don't understand why they want to spend so much more money in those then they do on our country," said Lynn Shields.
Here in Kearney some say it doesn't matter who won last night's debate. They've already made their minds up. However, the number one issue of foreign policy did spark some conversation on our News 5 Facebook page:
Thomas H: "Guess the Romney people need to brush up on their world maps...like their leader."
Randal K: "Romney is flip flopping all over the place, as usual. Obama is bringing experience and intelligence - to say nothing of consistence of policy - to the table. Obama did a good job of calling Romney out on using his visit to Israel as a fundraising tour instead of doing as Obama had done, meeting with the people and their leaders."
Merlin B: Romney is doing good but Obama is attacking him and lying about his own record
And Tiffany Z tops it off with: "No matter who is president, we are screwed! Just saying."
Back in Kearney, Senate candidate Deb Fischer was in town campaigning and is pleased with Romney's performance, but there's still ambiguity in the United States foreign policy issues.
"I'm distressed at what I believe is a lack of clarity on the part of the Obama Administration when it comes to the stance of the U.S. with regards to our friends and our foes. The United States has to be a leader. I believe that we have to be a leader in the world. We are a stabilizing force throughout the world and we need to remain that," said Senator Deb Fischer.
Take a drive down 2nd Avenue in Kearney, you'll find other constituents who say Monday night's debate was no deal breaker.
"I'm glad to see that we're done with the debates and I think it probably helps a lot of people. Personally, myself I'm not influenced that much by them," said Maynard Kellerman.
