In less than 24 hours, President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will face-off in the first of three presidential debates that may be a game changer for the 2012 presidential election.
As recent polls continue to reveal a close race between the two candidates, both campaigns have their sights on undecided and swing voters.
We asked our OutFront Political Strike team to weigh in on whether the debates can have an impact on undecided voters.
Tune to Erin Burnett OutFront at 7p ET for the results from our political strike team.

Candidate 'tells' a cue to presidential debate performance
When Mitt Romney is agitated his arms flail. President Barack Obama has a tendency to drone on and on. Debate experts say both should keep those quirks in check during the upcoming presidential debates.
That's because in the world of political theater, nobody likes a ham or a know-it-all, said Melissa Wade, a debate professor at Emory University.
So Romney should keep that whiteboard full of facts and figures under wraps. And Obama should keep the lecturing to a minimum.
"It's the generation of Twitter and Facebook and efficient language choices are persuasive," Wade said.
Both candidates are considered skilled debaters - Romney's campaign called Obama a "universally acclaimed public speaker," and Romney was lauded for his performance during the Republican presidential primary debates. However, there's a lot more to effective debating than clever rhetoric.
