US President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney have returned to the campaign trail, a day after their fractious televised debate.
Sparks flew during yesterday's encounter in New York as the candidates engaged directly with voters and each other.
On Wednesday they continued their pitches for the female vote, after a debate comment by Romney on equal opportunities sparked debate online.
Post-debate audience polls gave the edge in the debate to Obama.
The president was widely judged to have lost the pair's first head-to-head two weeks ago.
