New Mexicans watched intently.
Some voters went into the first presidential debate without a clear favorite.
"I came in undecided. I try to vote on the issues not on how the candidate looks," said undecided voter Janette McClelland.
The first question about creating jobs is the most important issue for McClelland, saying, "I've been out of work for 11 months since last November."
The local musician said neither candidate has struck a chord with her, even after the first debate.
"Romney says he's going to create 12 million jobs. How is he going to create it? What type of jobs will they give us?" She asked. “Obama didn't say anything either and that disappoints me."
But the debate is providing more clarity for some.
"I voted for him in 2008. And I will probably vote for him again," said Adam Trujillo.
The 23-year-old is a CNM student, and education is tops on his mind.
"The big thing I love about Obama is that he's dedicated to education, which always benefits me. Obviously Mitt Romney that's one thing I got from this I didn't know so much of his policies on what he was thinking,” said Trujillo.
As for Romney’s education plan: “To tell you the truth, he left it unclear," Trujillo said.
McClelland will wait for the next match up and hopes it’s not “same ol’ same ol’.”
