(NECN) - Broadside host Jim Braude discusses the latest political topics, including Monday's debate between Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren.

With 5,000 people watching the debate at UMass-Lowell between Brown and Warren, Monday night's debate will have a very different feel from the first debate, which was held in a television studio. While the crowd will be excited, Braude expects they will be behaved.

The next big political debate will be Wednesday, between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. The pressure is on for the Republican candidate. The problem for Romney, according to Braude, is that Romney has to "hit a home run" as polls are trending away from his favor.
