Our two days away.
From one of the most watched events of the year debate number one and a brand new Rasmussen poll shows many of you can still be persuaded for either candidate.
Are considered uncommitted.
In other words you're open to changing your mind one key feature these voters don't see the election result -- Affecting their lives and any major way what about this -- -- powers Daily Beast columnist.
Fox News contributor rich Larry entered the national review -- -- Fox's contributor.
Good morning to both of you aren't so -- rich you know Chris Christie predicts a whole new race on Thursday morning as this.
Does this help -- never -- up Chris Christie -- With that that is that a game changer not on Wednesday well.
We'll see I -- one thing -- I do think in this Rasmussen poll goes to this.
That people aren't more persuade -- -- and more susceptible to argument and changing their mind.
Than we think and the Democratic Convention moved the needle.
In this race and is largely because Bill Clinton went out for 45 minutes and need the case on substance largely against Mitt Romney but he made it.
And Mitt Romney's 47%.
Remark knew the needle at least a little bit in the opposite direction.
So that's a good sign that this is still open it's still close to polls a national polls out this morning showing 4947.
For President Obama so -- needs to go out there make the case affirmatively for his program and why it is better.
Then the president's this is not just a referendum that was the Romney.
Theory going in that's proven false he needs to prove that he's a better choice the next for an -- than -- -- what about that.
Yeah -- -- -- people are definitely still persuade a ball that 15% is is it is a pretty big number though if you look at.
Undecided voters usually in most polls -- around 6% -- it's much.
Much lower but that rich is right I mean people people will pay attention to this and they -- Look for something maybe to make them change their mind for people who aren't completely thrilled about their choice which actually I think in -- bowl parties in this.
Yeah most people most people really aren't that excited about their choice but it's mostly that the independent voters that they're gonna have to focus on -- and -- and you can make the case that this debate is really for them.
The -- -- -- -- way to -- absolutely and it's.
And it's not just for that and them it's -- those that are in certain states you know it's it's great that -- we can talk about the race what's happening nationally.
But but the reality is this what matters and it's happening in battleground states and battleground states it looks like the race is moving in Obama's direction and -- now we will see.
-- whether or not that ships as a result of -- Wednesday night but -- it take you both back to an event in 2008 a lot of folks have.
Forgotten about I believe this was January during the primary battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama you remember this exchange -- Because while I was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shift overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the border -- It was presented as though the Republicans had been standing up against the conventional wisdom with their ideas.
I'm just reacting to the fact yes they did have ideas and they -- bad idea or bad for America and I was fighting against those ideas when you were practicing law and representing.
Your contributor -- -- In his slum landlord business in inner city Chicago.
I mean talk about us down.
Yeah I loved every minute if you got that you did.
You get an exchange like -- and Wednesday night what's the likely impact.
One of these uncommitted or persuade it will voters well we don't know I mean that's what weather is weather reasons -- -- so fascinating as there are moments like that and you just don't know.
Which way it's gonna bounce and neither candidates can be totally.
Prepare for it but.
They'll both of these guys have been through an awful lot of debates in their careers they're both pretty good they'll both be well prepared.
The one thing I think that has -- Cause for optimism for Republicans usually -- -- -- the president comes out a little rusty.
That we saw that 1984 Reagan's first debate was a disaster.
George -- he Bush's first debate was a disaster I don't think of the disaster necessarily for the president but -- saw that Univision interview a week or so ago.
When your incumbent president you're not so used to being challenged as a win here you know primaries you're insulated on what color -- you're right you're right you're right you're so what do you think the the impact potential exchange like we just -- Will have on this 15% progress and.
Hit it well I -- -- is -- just depends on what it is that it.
And there was another debate moment in 2008 that that just seems that changed it -- factory a little bit murmur when Hillary was told that.
That people don't like her and she set -- you know while back hurts my feelings and it it was a very kind of like.
Bonnie and self deprecating moment combined with her crying and that it separately.
At united seemed to sort of move women voters in a way so you can't ever really now these are just you know.
There could just be some sort of moment that that -- people on a certain direction though I think the bigger issue is is Mitt Romney making people feel like.
I'm a good alternative.
To Obama you're not really that happy with -- you wouldn't just be undecided or persuade a -- you've -- -- -- with me but.
But yeah I'm safe I'm you know I'm I'm somebody who you can trust it with the future and I'm not the person that they've been telling you I am I'm not as president -- People at the audience is enormous greater than fifty million Americans will watch this.
I mean this is golden opportunity with a capital GC then -- and thank you.
Rich -- in -- hallway of those thank you.
We are your headquarters for Wednesday night.
All of it pregame post game full analysis the following morning which will be interesting too because out of -- days and it sets and a little bit self.
