    President Barack Obama (L) and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney share a laugh at the end of the first presidential debate in Denver October 3, 2012.

The second in a series of three presidential debates will take place tonight at 9 p.m. ET as President Barack Obama looks to reassert himself following a low key first debate, in which rival Mitt Romney was widely heralded as the winner.

Since that opening debate on Oct. 3 Republican candidate Mitt Romney has managed to close the gap in the polls with President Obama, and if he can put on another impressive performance tonight that trend could continue.

However, Obama has acknowledged he was "too nice" in the first debate, and it is expected that he will come out with a lot more energy and attempt to go on the offensive tonight.

The second debate from New York will be televised across various networks, but can also be watched online through live stream right here on The Christian Post by clicking through to a video stream HERE.
