In order to win our gas card today you need to know the password -- would he got for us it's not over her. That has -- What are Steve Moore ever visited -- over restaurant when he visited Boston good morning Steve welcome to the show. They quite desperate to do it. -- Steve wanted to let hockey get the big debate tonight it's on foreign policy had of these candidates differ from you you know you've studied both pretty carefully. On how to -- how did these two candidates differ from each other on foreign policy. Well actually you know I'm not foreign policy expert is not an economic guy analyst but I I think that what they're Romney's -- -- -- night. Is that this really -- about who's gonna win the election and Warren points that I think every. Answered every question on foreign policy aspect. Swing back for the economy that's where Barack Obama so formidable that lack of jobs and operate that. Really spoke out and I think what point if I were tight in the -- years. Every question should be answered by you know we -- with a weak economy. Means we now you know a week national so a week. Foreign policy and week war on -- -- And I think that's the white but he estimate that you don't break it made it very well there's debate the order that I want economy suffered at home we don't check the stronger richer brought. That's true that's very true. Do you expect Obama to take another nap tonight or will he show up. It's going to be quite yet it is like the first wants pot I'd in the cycle one I think this is going to be a lot of fireworks a lot of spoke spark. I think that that will find out the absurd number we out of the abbreviated discussion of what happened -- the Libyan embassy. But I think that without Candy Crowley though it may get a full discussion and you know full details of what happened at what the president knew what went into. We've had strong viewership for these debates thus far Steve 60000070. Million people watching these what do you expect for tonight the third debate visit there. Is the appeal start to Wear off for the B is a man many Americans watching tonight. Well a couple problems further for the presidential candidates is that -- did compete against that the struggle but first. How about Monday Night Football and they're competing against the seventh game of the and -- play out so terrible that -- might as well. So there's a lot of competition and I think people that I don't think this debate it's quite as important but first do because. At -- point I think most people have kind of made up their mind about you know who they're gonna support. And I thought I thought -- or not what first or support that was sort of the first impression and at first impression that it -- He does in naturally when Romney he got his surge in the polls and he hasn't given it back as -- he's he's maintained if not increased his lead. Since that first debate from what I've seen. It's it's been a very sustained. And it's not just about there's there's there's the good bounces file on the topic that has been. Our sustained in the polls. They are and Romney were about two point lead but you know in the in the Electoral College race the most -- -- like Virginia I allowed -- I know. They'll raise -- Would -- in the race at the Wall Street Journal released a poll believe either late last night -- this morning saying it was a dead heat. Is that and usual at this stage of the election to have it be so close. Yeah it incident that. It's starting to look like 2008000. Well organized that you know where but like that I think we're gonna be really late on election they. Maybe QA ever three day out like we revert not. In previous election up our youngest is going to be razor tight it's gonna come down most you -- That aren't especially those Midwestern State. And a course veterinary got to -- capture audience -- they're out of order to have a big impact on the straight as well. They are they are it's going to be very uninteresting to watch with Steve. Lisa. I'll take I think Obama's got a thirty point lead here but you know the problem -- just having a big impact on the senate race here you know are the that that race is much closer. Then anticipated. In it's largely due to Obama's strength. In in -- it. I have to say that not a bobbled that a rate I think that's the water but the country that they've watched the -- because you have you've scattered groups. You know who are so well II profiler and have such a different from dial an ideology thought that the -- you watch in the courts that. -- it it's it's. Interesting to watch too because I thought initially that Scott Brown would walk away with this and now he's he's in the fight of his life so. Or open the diplomats to that do the right back. Except -- -- there had to. And let let next week -- you about it update about it in orbit that I believe it's going to be -- and I believe. We're going to be up really late on election night. LP. On the ballot to 2 AM in the morning.
