KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- With their series of debates behind them, President Barack Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney have begun the home stretch of campaigning to Election Day.

Western Michigan University Assistant Professor of Political Science Peter Wielhouwer tells WKZO the debate did not seem to be a runaway win for either candidate.

"I think there were some advantages that Mr. Obama had and some advantages that Mr. Romney had," Wielhouwer said. "All told, I don't see how it really changes the dynamic of the race."

Part of that, Wielhouwer believes, is because he does not see much difference between the candidates' foreign policy perspectives.

"I just didn't think that there were very many major differences..." Wielhouwer said. "They actually had quite a bit of agreement and they were quibbling over details."

A number of polls - including those from CBS News and CNN - called it a win for President Obama.
