On Monday Night, President Barack Obama and Republican Nominee, Governor Romney will go head to head in the final debate of the 2012 Presidential Election.
Vicki Doolin is one of the many voters who are unsure whether the upcoming Presidential Debate will play a role in the outcome of the election.
She said, “It might not make any difference at this point. I think people have their minds made up about it."
The topic of Monday night’s debate will focus on foreign policy.
Lucas Kreklau of West Fargo said, “It will kind of paint a bigger picture of the candidates since at the presidential level foreign policy is kind of the big deal."
Many voters say foreign policy is important especially after last week’s debate when the discussion about the September 11th attack in Libya became heated between the two presidential hopefuls.
Monday night's debate is one of the last major opportunities for Obama and Romney to capture the attention of millions of voters, especially the small sought after group that has yet to make up their minds
Roxane Vandertuig says she hopes that those who are still undecided make an educated decision and not one solely based off the candidate's performances in the debates.
She said, “I think it's very good that there are debates and I think people should watch, but the debates shouldn't really determine who you vote for. I think you need to know much more about what is going on."
Decided or not, many people say they just want a leader in the white house.
“We just really need someone that is going to lead us and help us with our economy and I just hope and pray that the best man will win,” said Doolin.
