SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - It's the final round tonight for President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.
Springfield Political Consultant, Tony Cignoli, says a lot could be riding on body language during this third debate.
"As important as the questions and the issues are, unfortunately it's not going to be as important as how they speak. Every gesture, every facial tick, it's all important. There's no wiggle room for not having the right look, the right demeanor and acting the right way," said Cignoli.
Taking too many notes, cracking jokes, drinking too much water, appearing not to pay attention, interrupting, or being rude could impact how the voters feel.
"I think body language is definitely very important, because it kind of gives personality traits off," said voter, Erik Allard from Springfield.

Although it might not be what people base their vote on, it could be the final determining factor.
"This race is so close, 47-47, that it comes down to validating your choice of one or the other or helping you to make that final decision. Who do I like and who do I trust the most? Sounds corny, but who would I trust my wallet with, who would I trust my child's life with, who do I trust America with," said Cignoli.
