With less than three weeks until the election, will Wednesday's debate help undecided voters make up their minds?

Charles Ebrightd watches the debate closely in the hopes of finally making up his mind.

"It's been a little bit tough to watch so far because I haven't been able to navigate one way or another," said Ebrightd.

A high school teacher in Wichita, Ebrightd voted for Bush in the last election and normally leans to the right. This election, however, he's struggling with a pick for president.

"I think Obama has gotten his message across pretty well. McCain, I think especially on the economic message, is struggling to get that across but I respect his military service. The lack of experience with Obama makes me question if he's ready," said Ebrightd.

Ebrightd is one of the many undecided voters that could end up deciding when he walks into the poll. That puts a lot of pressure on the candidates to perform in their third and final debate.

"From what I've seen so far I think McCain is off to a pretty good start," said Ebrightd.

Still he needs to hear more.

"I think again they need to get into more details about some of their policies," said Ebrightd.

So by the end of the night did the debate sway him one way or the other?

"I think, yeah, I'll have made up my mind," said Ebrightd.

He says this was the best debate out of the three as far as the details he got from the candidates. He has now decided he will vote for John McCain.
