    Obama won the debate for me, but was assisted pretty well by a clearly biased moderator speaking from the outside.

    Along with that he got 3 and a half minutes more speaking time, and questions geared towards democratic issues or against Romney except 2/3.

    So when you can't win the debate, accuse the moderator. I hear similar comments were made against the Moderator for VP debate.

    Have heard about stuff like this happening before but am kinda disturbed it's not only just a thing but, since a change in legislation, ramped up.

    Yikes. If my boss was pressuring me to vote one way or the other, such a **** situation to be in.

    How can you pressure someone to vote for a specific person? It seems it'd be much more likely to backfire.
