FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) ---Will the second time be the charm for President Obama, who is trying to rebound from a poor performance and win Wednesday’s second of three Presidential debates.

We talked to Fort Wayne voters, to see what they'll be paying attention to.

The first debate in Denver focused on the economy and jobs.

The questions came from the journalist who moderated.

In the second debate on Long Island New York, undecided voters from the audience get to pose the questions.

We asked voters from this area if anything said could change their mind.

" Pretty comfortable where I'm at with it. At this point, I think most everyone would know, but for the undecided, it may be a question or two that may make a difference," said Jeremy Brames, who claims he already has his mind made up.

" We have our opinions on how we'd like to see things to go, and want to see how they handle it on the debate," said Lisa Burgh, who plans to tune in.

" I'm more interested in the social issues and I really would like to know what both people concretely stand for, and I don't think that either candidate has done a very good job of expressing that fully, but, like I said, my allegiance pretty much lies with one and I think it's pretty much how I'll vote," said Destany Maddox of Fort Wayne.

" I think Obama is the right choice for the next four years, so we'll see how the debate goes. He didn't do so good last time, but his issues were smart, so I want to be with the smart man," said Sylvester Hughes.

The debate was set to start at 9 p.m.

Republican Mitt Romney got a boost from his showing in the first head to head.

A repeat performance could make the final three weeks of this election very interesting.
