Heritage Foundation’s Cameron Seward Recaps Monday’s Final Presidential Deabte [AUDIO]
On the Tuesday edition of the Chad Hasty Show, Cameron Seward of the Heritage Foundation talked with Chad Hasty about last night’s final presidential debate.
Seward said of last night’s debates that both candidates accomplished what they set out to accomplish. Obama was very aggressive last night, and Seward said that, because he wanted to paint Romney as a “confrontational warhawk,” he got confrontational as well. On the other hand, according to Seward, set out to pace himself and paint himself as a peaceful, calm commander-in-chief, not some warhawk.
Now that the race in in its final days, Seward said that both campaigns will now direct their focus on the swing states.
“Now we’ll see both candidates just hammering not only the swing states, but the swing counties within those states. I was watching some commentary at the end of the debate, and they [said] now it’s just deciding where to land the planes, where to put the presidential candidates and the vice presidents, to really get the most bang for your buck in that regard.”
Seward does not expect anymore large shifts in the polls, but he did predict that Romney would be the overall victor of the presidential race. He also commented on President Obama’s “horses and bayonets” comment, saying that the poorly-worded comment will probably lose him quite a few military voters.
