McCain On Attack In Final Presidential Debate With Obama

John McCain and Barack Obama have met in the last of three presidential debates.

McCain was more forceful than in previous debates, attacking Obama over his economic policies. In contrast, Obama absorbed the attacks and methodically restated his positions.

The debate will likely be well-received by the Republican Party but may not have any electoral impact. For at least two weeks, Obama has been extending his lead in polls in crucial ‘battleground’ states and appears on track for a comfortable win on November 4.
