Undecided Voters Weigh In on Debate at UL Watch Party

With just two weeks to go before election day, most polls show a dead heat between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. And with that, undecided voters could have a big impact on this election. But there's not much time to make up their minds.

A few undecided voters at a watch party at UL Monday night said they were looking for answers and clarity on how they'll vote come November 6th. But did they get those answers? That's what we wanted to find out from Christopher Clark and Alownna Murray.

"I'm an undecided voter," said Clark before the debate.

"Right now I'm a little undecided because I didn't feel like Obama made and completed all of his promises that he first said and then Romney is a little bit of a flip flopper for me so I'm not sure where he is on all of the issues," added Murray.

Both young voters said despite everything -- the debates, the headlines, the campaigning -- they're still looking for something from the top two candidates.

"I already know pretty much enough about their personalities, I'm not looking for another big argument like last time, I just want clear cut what each person wants and I hope they'll give us tonight," explained Murray.

Clark said he wanted, "Mainly some clarity, actually from both candidates, more clarity on which specific things they would do, especially on foreign policy because this is a big issue for the United States."

After 90 minutes of back and forth on topics ranging from Libya and Iran to war, global economy and policies, did Obama or Romney win another vote from our undecided voters?

"I think overall, I think Obama won this one," Murray started out. "I'm still really not sure, I think I'm going to wait for the fact checkers to come back and do my own research and find out which one I agree with more."

"I think they were a bit more on point than they were in the last debate," concluded Clark. "But I haven't decided yet."

Still undecided, but hopefully on their way to a decision after Monday's debate. The undecided voters have just two weeks to make up their minds.
