Pressure on Obama to come out punching in round two

If round one was an indication of how the second round of presidential debates might go, President Obama is in trouble. SOUNDBITE: Carroll Doherty, Associate Director Of The Pew Research Center saying. "He needs a better performance going forward." After delivering answers like this and a demeanor many described as passive, the president not only lost the debate. He also saw his lead over Romney evaporate. Carroll Doherty is the Associate Director Of The Pew Research Center. SOUNDBITE: Carroll Doherty, Associate Director Of The Pew Research Center saying: "The polls reflect a win by any standard for Romney. I mean the race is now, even though the momentum is on Romney's side, the race is now very close..The trajectory of the race has changed but it is still very close." Romney was leading Obama by three points last week but the latest Reuters Ipsos poll shows the president with a one point lead over his Republican rival. Possible advantages for Obama in round two include the more relaxed town hall format .... the lowest unemployment numbers since he took office... and the benefit of low expectations. Romney, Doherty says will be expected to build on his previous performance and to offer more details. SOUNDBITE: Carroll Doherty, Associate Director Of The Pew Research Center saying: "Voters still have some doubts about Romney's specifics." Tuesday debate at New York's Hofstra University will be the second of three.
