What’s potentially the most exciting part of tonight’s debate? The “town-hall” style format will allow 82 undecided voters to ask whatever they want. There has been lots of anticipation about what kinds of questions would come from the audience. The first comes from a young college student named Jeremy Epstein who asks, “How can you reassure me that I will be able to support myself after I graduate?”
So who is Jeremy and who will be the other people asking questions anyway?
Gallup, the polling organization, randomly picked the voters in the audience. All live near Hofstra University and their questions were not pre-screened but they were pre-written. Each audience member wrote his or her question on an index card. They kept one copy of the question. Another copy of each question has been given to debate moderator Candy Crowley. Crowley has decided which of the voters will ask questions.
