Voice of the Voter

UNDATED (WJRT) -

(10/23/12) - The presidential debates are finished and now the general election is just two weeks away.

President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney will be fighting to the end to rally enough support to take the White House as some national polls show the race in dead heat.

We continue with our with Voice of the Voters series. While some have had their minds made up for quite some time, others still need more convincing.

Lindsey Montpas of Flushing knows she has only 14 days to pick a president. "I'm kind of on the fence, my dad is a strict Republican and I hear that every day, but I haven't decided yet."

She watched Monday's debate and the president's performance may have put him ahead. "He's confident. I think he's done a good job with what he came into. I don't think any of us could turn it around in four years. Mitt I don't know, I don't know if he has it, I don't know if I trust him. "

"I'd like to have somebody who's going to be honest, and do something for the country," said George Angell.

Even though Angell is retired, jobs and the economy are still on the top of his presidential 'to do' list. "I'm looking for the economy to go up and for people to go back to work, but you know the Democrats and Republicans always promise you this, promise you that it's all political the once they get in the White House you don't know what to expect.

Lee Rhoads is also looking for the job picture to improve. "I work with the credit union, big issue for a lot of our members is jobs and I'd like to see the economy improve and make the area more business friendly, so incentive to bring work to the area."

"I want someone who will make wise decisions and wise choices," explained Connie O'Brien.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
