    For the first time, President Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney will meet face to face for tonight's debate. They will be vying for attention from voters, particularly the independents who are expected to determine the outcome of the November 6 presidential election. Political observers say Romney needs a stellar performance to make up for his lagging numbers in the surveys. Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports from Denver, Colorado.
