Less than three weeks before Election Day, the race between President Bush and Sen. John Kerry is a dead heat in crucial battleground states. We discuss whether their debates have changed anyone's mind — or even energized supporters.

Guests:

Ron Elving, NPR Washington Editor

David Broder, columnist, The Washington Post

Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director, Annenberg Public Policy Center at University of Pennsylvania and author of The 2000 Presidential Election and the Foundations of Party Politics
