LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After watching Wednesday's debate, some voters say round one goes to Mitt Romney. While it's not the view of all Americans, Romney's performance is breathing new life into the GOP nominee's campaign.

"Romney performed very well," said first-time Romney campaign volunteer Gustavo Guadamud. "He was very consistent on his message and what he was proposing to the nation."

Guadamud was inspired by Romney's performance in the first round of the presidential debates. He showed up to volunteer for the first time for Romney's campaign. The father of two said he's fed up with the economy and wants to try and get more Latinos on board with the GOP candidate.

"I think we need more people telling other people what's really going on in the country," Guadamud said. "If I can make more phone calls, knock on some doors, that's what I want to do."

He's not the only one.

"We are really excited," said Maison Harrison who supports Romney. "We have volunteers coming here, picking up signs and signing up to volunteer in the phone backs. There's a lot of enthusiasm."

With Nevada playing a critical role in this year's presidential race, they're wasting no time keeping the momentum going.

"We are not going to be outworked," Harrison said. "The reality is it doesn't matter what the voter registrations are because people know they weren't better off four years ago."

But Obama's campaign in Nevada is calling foul and they don't believe Romney's performance was a game-changer.

"Gov. Romney certainly showed style," said Zach Hudson who supports Obama. "This election is going to be about who is fighting for the middle class. President Obama is going to win Nevada."
