Obama and Romney Prepare for New York Debate
The US President Barack Obama, is under pressure to bounce back after a languid first performance in the Presidential Debate against Mitt Romney.
A new national opinion poll shows the rivals in a statistical dead heat, 21 days before the election.
Ahead of Tuesday’s debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, Mr Obama has been preparing with a three-day debate camp at a golf resort in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Mitt Romney’s wife remarked on his rise in national opinion polls following his first clash with the president.
But as US economic indicators continue to point to recovery, the survey also found that voters narrowly favoured the president rather than Mr Romney to nurture further growth.
The final presidential debate is scheduled for 22 October in Boca Raton, Florida.
