Fazio says that he is worried Romney will revert to the policies of George W. Bush.
"It scares me to stick the Republicans back in there." Fazio said.

Taylor is looking for someone who can corral Congress.
"I think that the president, while it's an important position, is not the problem here. It's the Congress that's the problem," Taylor said.

Undecided voters who tend to vote wait until the last minute to cast their ballots, said Jan Leighley, professor of government at American University.
"If you don't have to buy a new cell phone for another month, you probably won't buy it today," Leighley said.
But for Fazio, because of the debate, he says he couldn't vote today.
"If you had me pencil in a vote today, I couldn't tell you who I was going to vote for."
