President Barack Obama will on Tuesday seek to make a comeback at a town hall-style debate against Mitt Romney, his Republican rival for the White House, after suffering a sharp decline in the polls due to his lacklustre performance in their first face-off.

With early voting under way in 30 states, the debate at Hofstra University on Long Island, New York, will provide Mr Obama with a chance to turn around his fortunes and prove to tens of millions of viewers that he has the appetite for the fight.
