WOODBURY - Party convention speeches were filled with pride and patriotism, but did the presidential candidates get their followers fired up? News 12 Long Island's Christine Insinga asked Long Islanders how they're feeling about President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney after the two party conventions. Some can't wait to get to the polls and cast their votes in November after being energized by the speeches. Others, however, say they weren't impressed by what they heard.
