SAN ANTONIO -- All eyes and ears were on the first presidential debate Wednesday night. Studnets at the University of Texas at San Antonio joined 12,000 others from around the country in a first ever electronic watch party.
UTSA wants to encourage young voters to hit the polls. They held an interactive watch party that not only allowed students to react online, but to also chime in on who they think will be the next president.
The debate was the main topic of class discussion at UTSA.
Nearly 800 students here took part in a nationwide focus group. Students got a chance to react every few minutes with the click of a button.
While most who participated identified themselves as Democrats, some began siding with Gov. Mitt Romney toward the end of the debate.
“Romney was making some good points," one student said. "I might switch my opinion."
Not all had the same opinion.
“I think it’s going to be Obama, but Romney is going to give him a run for his money,” said a different student.
Most who were set on voting for President Obama said he didn’t seem as aggressive as he did in 2008.
“I started the election going for Obama,” said another student, who is now looking closer at Romney.
While political analysts said Romney came out on top Wednesday night, there are still those who are undecided.
“I’m still kind of on the fence,” said another student.
