HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are back on the campaign trail Wednesday, the day after their second debate.
The President will visit the battleground states of Iowa and Ohio. Romney will be in Virginia.
Tuesday evening was the second time President Obama and Romney faced each other, but the first time they took debate questions from voters.
The candidates were out in the open and they were more willing to take aim at each other in Tuesday night's town hall-style debate. The candidates addressed those undecided voters directly.
President Obama's campaign promised a more energetic performance, while Romney came into Tuesday night's debate with a slight lead in support after their first encounter.
The candidates discussed issues like education, gas prices, taxes and the economy. They touched on foreign policy and the security of diplomats after the attack in Libya that killed four Americans last month.
According to a CNN, ORC International Poll taken just after the debate finished, 46 percent of those surveyed thought President Obama won and 39 percent say they thought Romney won.
The candidates will square-off for their third and final debate Monday evening in Florida.
