Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, October 4, 2012

The morning after the presidential debate, voters in the swing state of Ohio weigh in on who won and what issues matter most this election. The middle class was a popular talking point for candidates Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in last night's debate -- how did it play in the minds of voters? Presidential debates are designed to help voters decide who to support, but if you run a small business that does political work, more often than not, you’ve got to pick sides too. Venezuelans will be going to the polls this weekend to elect their president. Unlike any election in recent memory there, it's looking close for Hugo Chavez, who has been in power since 1998.
