Wednesday’s presidential debate in Denver put President Barack Obama against challenger Mitt Romney for the first time in the 2012 election season.
And, by many accounts, Romney came out victorious, as his the debate performance is being seen by many as a boost to his candidacy, the Boston Globe reported.
“The solid verdict for Mitt Romney following the first presidential debate — on style points, at a minimum — has pushed the Obama campaign to rethink strategy and the Republican team to reload,” the Globe reported.
Obama notably did not mention in the debate some of the more contentious issues from his side of the campaign, including Romney’s “47 percent” comment and the Republican’s link to Bain Capital.
The debate focused largely on specifics with regard to each candidate's approach so certain policies and, as The New York Times put it, "the 90-minute debate unfolded much like a seminar by a business consultant and a college professor."
