What the candidates did not say during final presidential debatePosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- While the exact numbers vary, experts agree that a large portion of what we say doesn't come from our mouths. It's comes from non-verbal communication -- body language, gestures, facial expressions, eye contact, blinking, voice quality and speaking style.
