The Conventions

The 2012 Fall campaign for the White House is officially underway after the Republican and Democratic national conventions. After high profile speeches by the candidates’ spouses and running mates, as well as Clint Eastwood, Bill Clinton and, of course, the candidates themselves — all meant to illustrate the differences between the candidates and their parties — we ask people in New York if they were watching and whether the conventions will influence their vote.
