With foreign policy being the focus of Monday night's debate, many New Yorkers said President Barack Obama needs to make some clarifications about the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya on September 11th this year, whether it was spontaneous or planned by militants and what the administration knew and when.
"I hope he is asked about the incident in Benghazi so he can clear things up," said one New Yorker.
"I'd like to see Obama tell us exactly what happened. I'd like Romney to admit that he doesn't exactly know all the total information because he is not the president and not privy to everything," said another New Yorker.
"If he doesn't tell the truth about Benghazi tonight, he could lose this election," noted a third New Yorker.
Truth was a word used by a number of people who spoke with NY1 Monday. Many of them said they're still waiting to hear it from both candidates.
"All of the debates I've watched, they've been lying. So hopefully the truth will come out and the American people will see the truth and vote on the truth, and not any other reason," said one New Yorker.
"Just be honest, I mean I want both of them to just look at us and just tell us what they're thinking, and what their plans are," said another New Yorker.
"I think they are all liars and they just say what people want to hear. They really don't care about the public, it's the truth," said a third New Yorker.
While at least one person said they wouldn't be watching tonight, another said they will be even though they've already made up their mind.
"It's just going to be entertainment at this point. If you haven't decided who you are really for, you've got a problem," said one New Yorker.
One undecided voter disenchanted with the race called the whole thing a "freak show", but said she will listen tonight with an open mind, and then make a decision.
