Patch, Iona Students Gather to Watch Debate

Viewing party on North Avenue campus.

Iona College students and Patch editors are gathered tonight at the North Avenue campus in New Rochelle for a viewing party to watch the first presidential debate between President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The first issue up for discussion: Jobs.

Next up, the economy and health care.

The debate has Iona students glued to their seats — but it's difficult to tell who they think is winning the debate. Patch will be talking with a panel of Iona Students about the debate when Obama and Romney finish tonight.

obama's poll numbers are dropping like a stone, I guess that happens when the emperor is exposed for not wearing any clothes. Where are all those posters that continually said that the election was over and obama was going to win in a landslide before the debate?

There are still A LOT of people who will vote for him not because he is half black, but because he is not white.

You are mistaken you mixed up Romney with OBUMMA.

Never said that but I don't put much stock in them. Regardless, many on here were on top of the world before the debate as the polls showed obama with a commanding lead. But now? Not so much.
