President Barack Obama came back swinging in last night’s second presidential debate. After an arguably weak performance in the first debate, a more aggressive Commander-in-Chief showed up last evening, going toe-to-toe with Governor Romney on the topics of tax cuts, foreign policy, jobs, education and the economy. At one point the debate became rather heated as both candidates devolved into angry cross talk with one another during the town hall format.

A survey conducted by CNN found that 46 percent of registered voters who watched the debate said Obama won, while 39 percent said Romney did. The survey’s margin of error was four percentage points, alluding to the tightness of the race. The final presidential debate will take place on Monday, October 22, in Boca Raton, FL, and will focus on foreign policy.

If you were unable to catch the debate live, here are some highlights for your viewing pleasure.
