SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- Responding to the format of Tuesday's Presidential debate, KARE 11 asked some of our viewers what questions they would put to the candidates.
The Second of three Presidential Debates features a "Town Hall" style of discussion, in which the questions come from the audience rather than a moderator.
Randomly surveyed near Rice Park in Saint Paul, Minnesotans identified only by their first names, offered their suggestions.
"Jessica" said, "I would ask President Obama and Mitt Romney what is their plan for job creation and how are they going to create jobs here that will sustain a middle class family?"
"Jim" said, "How can we put the deficit down to when it was closer to zero than it is, trillions of dollars, than it is now?"
"Paul" said, "Why the environment has not been a more prominent issue in this election, especially with the devastating drought that has been covering over 60% of the United States?"
"Rick" said, "What can they do for the homeless and people that have lower income housing?"
"Derrick" said, "I would question the role of religion in politics and the influence of religion on public policy?"
Another "Jim" had specific questions for each candidate. "I would probably ask Obama about what happened with the Benghazi tragedy?" And for Romney? "To be a little more detailed on his tax deductions, closing tax loop holes?"
