10-22-2012 14:02 BJT

The United States is to hold the third and final presidential debate in Boca Raton in the key state of Florida, Monday night local time. In the first two debates, President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, covered issues ranging from the Middle East to the country’s unemployment and tax cuts.

Their final encounter is expected to focus on foreign policy. According to a survey after the second debate, 49 percent of likely voters say Obama won, while 47 percent gave it to Romney. Analysts say, the task is especially urgent for Obama, as the challenge his campaign faces in converting supporters into actual voters between now and November the 6th.
