Barack Obama and Mitt Romney squared off last night in the final presidential debate. Here's how Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats reacted.
Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats both expressed confidence in their candidates after the final presidential debate, with Republicans citing Gov. Mitt Romney projecting an image of a "capable Commander-in-Chief" and Democrats citing President Barack Obama's line about the military having "fewer horses and bayonets" as standout moments: that's the major finding of the Red and Blue Commonwealth flash polls sent out to local politicos immediately after the debate ended on Monday night. Obama and Romney faced off Monday night at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., with CBS's Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer moderating a debate that focused on foreign policy, but regularly delved back into domestic policy differences between the …

Foreign policy was the topic at this last debate between Obama and Romney. Which candidate's views resonated with you?
The US economy managed to be a dominant presence in the final presidential debate Monday night, even in a debate focused on foreign policy. The tone of the debate between Pres. Barack Obama and Gov.

Both men were articulate about their stands. But whose views spoke the most to you? Who do you trust with 'getting the 3 a.m. phone call'? Who won this final debate? Tell us in the comments below.

Are the debates old hat by now, or will the last one offer valuable insight?
The third presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is scheduled for Monday night. Will you tune in, or have you already tuned out? Obama and Romney squared off in two debates earlier this month — on Oct. 3 and Oct. 16 — while the vice presidential debate was held on Oct. 11. For some, a third presidential debate on Oct. 22 may be overkill, if they've made their decision on who to vote for already, or just aren't that into politics. On the other hand, debates can offer further insight into the candidates, and, you never know what gems or gaffes could come out. So tell us: do you plan to tune into Monday night's final presidential debate? Let us know in the comments.

Local Democrats and Republicans across Massachusetts discussed Wednesday night's Obama-Romney debate in a live chat on Patch.
In the first presidential debate in Denver, Colorado, President Barack Obama came out flat while Gov. Mitt Romney had some effective arguments, according to local Democrats and Republicans from across Massachusetts who joined in a Patch live chat during the debate on Tuesday night. "Overall, tie goes to Obama," said Democrat Alex Buck. "Romney had a couple good lines, but nothing hugely productive. He looked jittery and possibly his most memorable line was about Big Bird." Reader (and Governor's Council candidate) Tom Sheff added late in the debate, "No defining moment so far, that's for sure." As the debate opened on the economy, Romney took an early upper hand according to both the Democrats and Republicans who joined the chat as …
