Clips From Last Night: Cory Booker on Mitt Romney's lack of specifics; Undecided voters weigh in on the candidates' responses at the second presidential debate

On Wednesday, Newark Mayor Cory Booker returned to the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studios, and on the heels of the previous evening's second presidential debate, he offered his feedback and perspective on the presidential race.

A strong supporter of Barack Obama, Booker was particularly critical of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's lack of specifics, especially on the economy:

"Tell me what you're going to cut," he insisted in reference to Romney's plans. "Tell me what loophole you're going to end. Are you going to end carried interest, are you going to end the mortgage deduction? Just give us your specifics of your plan."

"[Barack] Obama has been forced to do that," continued Booker. "He has showed us in the last years what the specifics of his plan are."

Also on Wednesday, host Piers Morgan welcomed four of the undecided voters who directly addressed the candidates as part of Tuesday's "Town Hall" style event.

Twenty-four hours since their 15 minutes of fame, Kerry Ladke, Jeremy Epstein, Carol Goldberg and Nina Gonzales all evaluated the candidates' answers to their questions.

Goldberg remarked that she was "disappointed" with the candidates' responses to her question on jobs. "I think they could have gone a little further and gone more into the meat of the matter, instead of speaking in general terms."

Epstein shared his skepticism towards Romney's promise that if elected, he would guarantee that the college student, would have a "job by the time I graduate in 2014."

"They have to say that," remarked Epstein. "They're trying to get your vote."

Ladke was also critical of the candidates response to his question on Libya, feeling that he was "another recipient of a non-answer."

"I thought Obama was evasive. Romney was circular," said Ladke. "I really never got a feel for what he was trying to say."

But even with the dissatisfying answers from both candidates, President Obama was still able to impart some influence on both Epstein and Gonzales.

"I haven't completely made my mind up, but I lean towards President Obama," said Gonzales. Goldberg and Ladke, however, remain undecided.

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Booker and the four undecided continue their analysis of Tuesday's debate.

    I am very dissappointed on PIERS MORGAN TONIGHT in which he said he shares ROMNEY's opinion on the fact that Romney went out to find BINDERS to help get qualified women to serve in his cabinet while the real fact has revealed that it was BINDERS women group that proposed & struck deal with Republican & Democratic candidates in event of who ever wins the election should agree to employ women in their cabinet. It wasn't Romney that took it upon himself to look out for women to serve. I am shamed & dissappointed by PIERS MORGAN'S agreement with Romney's lack of truth in his comments during the debate.
