Second Presidential debate is set for tonight
Tuesday night’s presidential debate will feature a town hall-style format, where the two candidates will answer questions from a selected group of voters on a wide range of issues. Instead of the two candidates sitting together at a table, or standing behind lecterns, with a moderator directing the discussion, President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney will talk directly to individual voters and attempt to answer their questions and concerns. Participants in this format will be selected by the Gallup polling organization, their questions will be submitted to the moderator, CNN’s Candy Crowley, but asked by the individual voters themselves. Over the weekend, NBCNews.com asked readers to submit the questions they would ask if given the opportunity. The network received over 4,800 responses, covering a wide array of topics including Libya and Romney’s “47%” remarks. Tonight’s debate is being held at Hofstra University on New York’s Long Island.
