In a story on NECN, Donald Brand, professor of political science at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the nature of the third and final presidential debate.
Explaining that the town hall format of the second debate favored President Obama, Brand contended that Monday’s debate would be a big opportunity for Romney. “[Romney doesn’t] have a lot of foreign policy experience,” said Brand. “[This] is Romney’s opportunity to prove to the American people that the U.S. would be safe in his hands.”
Brand predicted that the debate on foreign policy would have no clear winner. “Barring a major gaffe, I think that it’s probably going to end up more a draw than it is a decisive victory on the part of one candidate,” he said.
“I think the chances of this debate being as decisive as the first debate was are limited,” he continued.
