OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- In the Overby Center's auditorium, Ole Miss staff hosted a 2012 Presidential Debate simulcast for students and faculty.
Students had their own expectations and opinions about the candidates and the debate.
"Right now Romney is going to want to keep it focused on the economy because that is his strong points that the president has shown some weaknesses in. Obama would be better to focus on foreign policy, because Romney has no experience on that," said student Cody Smith.
"I think it will be close, but I think President Obama because of experience and charisma. I think we are going to see tonight what we saw in the first Obama-McCain debate that was here on this campus. You are going to see Barack Obama times ten," said Mac Aurthur Turner, a grad student.
One student believed that not only is it important for young people to be informed, but for students to be involved.
There were no political signs or posters in the auditorium to support a certain candidate.
One student said he couldn't tell which candidate had more support.
"You know I haven't been able to detect a clear bias as of yet... we will see as lines get tossed across the debate hall tonight. It will be interesting to see how that goes," said Joseph Latham.
