Wiseman describes herself as a Christian conservative and a 2008 John McCain voter. But the 47% remark turned her from undecided to strongly leaning toward voting for the president.
It hit home because her husband, Ray, was out of work for a bit and the family received some help from the government during that time.
"I feel like he is out of touch with what everybody is going through, " Wiseman said. "Ohio was one of the hardest places hit. My reaction to what he said is: 'That's me. He's talking about me.'"
Top Romney advisers acknowledge the "47%" remark as one of those rare breakthrough moments in today's cluttered politics. Romney clearly hopes the sting fades as the debates continue and the election nears, but his advisers also expect the Obama campaign will continue to use it as a weapon.
Some Ohio Republicans suggest a television ad featuring Ann Romney targeted directly at those women with doubts.
But it isn't just one Romney remark.
The first debate also pushed Wiseman a bit more into the president's camp.
Of Romney's performance she said: "It seemed like he won and traditionally it was a win. But I felt he came across kind of smug, a little on the arrogant side to me."
Still, she promises to tune into the remaining two presidential debates.
She gives Romney credit for recently saying he was wrong to speak as he did at the now infamous 47% fundraiser and says she might be swayed if he makes a stronger case for his economic approach in the remaining weeks.
"It would have to be something big," Wiseman said. "But I am still going to be open-minded until voting."
Jessica Lundgren also will be following the remaining debates and trying to sort truth from spin from the barrage of campaigns ads -- $20 million in Ohio in the presidential race in just the past two weeks.
"There are so many negative ads going back and forth so it is kind of hard," Lundgren said. "This is my daughter's future, not so much mine. So that is the hard part. I feel like I am making a decision for her as well, not just myself."
