ASU students react to first presidential debate

While the world discussed the winners and losers of the first presidential debate, Arizona State University students wanted to weigh in.

“I’m looking for someone to represent who I am … and right now, in D.C., we simply do not have that kind of representation,” said Rachel, a freshman, adding that she feels that Washington is lacking in white women representing their nation.

Rachel said she felt the debate went pretty well and lots of topics were hit, but Evan, a sophomore, felt Wednesday night changed the face of the election.

“It was a game-changer for the presidential debate,” he said, adding that Americans now know where each candidate stands.

Evan also felt that one man triumphed on Wednesday: Mitt Romney.

“I thought Romney showed how ready he is to be the next President of the United States,” he said.

In a tough economy, students are concerned about the job market when they graduate. Evan said he’s had to change his major just to give himself a shot at becoming successful.
