Blog Essay 5
By the end of the Kerry and Bush debates I felt that Kerry did have the debate won. Although throughout the debate Bush was making very strong points, Kerry just was able to respond to each question with what sounded like well prepared responses. However, Bush being the incumbent, he was able to still hold his own in the election and I feel that even though he lost the debate, he probably did not lose that many voters. Since their will be many more debates to come, Bush still can win over the undecided voters, but if they base their decisions on that last debate I think that Kerry could have won most of the swing votes over. From the debate we had after the presidential debate I got the feeling that most people agreed with what I saw and I totally agree that Kerry seemed more prepared but Bush was very good at conveying his point and getting the audiences reaction. All in all the debate was probably won by Kerry but both candidates made enough good points to make it still be a close election.
