Q. Did the series of presidential debates help sway your choice for president?
“I saw bits and pieces of the debates. There’s so much Romney’s against, like abortion. But it seems like Obama’s not getting us anywhere. So, I’m still not sure.”
“Yeah, the debates definitely reinforced the candidate I had already chosen.”
“Well, it was sort of half and half for me. But then Romney said he didn’t care about 47 percent of the people. And you know they say the middle class makes $250,000 a year. Well in South Carolina, most people make more like $40,000 to $60,000 a year; if they’re lucky. South Carolina is not a rich state, so what would Romney do for us?”
“I’m planning to vote for Barack Obama, so the debates didn’t matter to me.”
“Well, I saw parts of the debates. Instead of making all these promises, they should all say what they want to do, not what they’re going to do. The president can only do so much because of this Congress. But they need to help the middle class more than the wealthy.”
