Students Weigh in on Second Presidential Debate

"The gloves came off and the two presidential hopefuls came out swinging in a fiery debate Tuesday night for the White House."
This in-your-face approach really got the attention of voters, especially those on Wallace Community College's campus in Dothan...and the attention wasn't positive.

"I felt like they didin't always answer the questions...they more or less skirted around and it just kinda got into a cat fight between the two of them." A cat fight that Megan says was more tiring than informative.

"Their likeablility is going down and I have a feeling that with a lot of Americans, them just being so nit-picky about everything that their likeability has dropped a lot."

Between the negative political ads and the constant talk of who won and who lost, she says the debates have become more like a playground for entertainment rather than a forum for political issues.

"You have to pick who's the lesser of the evil now.. that's mainly what I see a lot of my firends saying and a lot of adults saying as well." And that feeling is being echoed across the campus.

"I think they were both being rude..they'd keep talking and just keep looking at each other, you know, rude and stuff, like making faces, you know."

And Latoya says that rude behavior does more to confuse voters than help them.

"They want to make sure that they're making the right decision. They want somebody that's gone be good up there." A choice that's getting less clear by the day.

"I hope that they actually get out there...research for themselves, watch the debates and actually get a clear picture on who they truly need to vote for."

With only one more presidential debate on the road to the White House, the Wiregrass will be watching.
