Presidential Debates Round 2: Obama, Romney to Face Town Hall Questions

The second presidential debate starts at 6 p.m. Pacific, and will take place at Hofstra University in New York.

President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney face off in a nationally-televised town hall debate Tuesday night, and Banning-Beaumont voters once again will get a chance to see the two top contenders in action.

The second presidential debate starts at 6:00 p.m. PST.  Though all major networks are slated to carry the debate live on television, you can also watch it live streaming here, on YouTube.

For those who choose to watch Obama and Romney they can expect a town meeting format, staged at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., according to the Commission on Presidential Debates.

Questions will come from from about 80 undecided voters, on both domestic and foreign issues, according to the Huffington Post.

The moderator will be Candy Crowley, CNN chief political correspondent and anchor of CNN's State of the Union.

"The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues," according to the commission. "Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion. The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization."

All presidential debates start at 6 p.m. Pacific Time and are expected to last 90 minutes.

The third and final presidential debate is scheduled Monday Oct. 22 at  Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. The moderator will be Bob Schieffer, chief Washington correspondent, CBS News, and moderator for Face the Nation.

Will you watch the presidential debate?  Who do you think has the advantage this round?

Is there any doubt a Romney administration would favor the rich and increase the income gap in our country? Mitt is a pariah in Mormon Clothing and will stop at nothing to expand an empire of greed for the rich in this country by expanding tax cuts for the 1% of the wealthiest Americans. He’s out to gut the Middle Class for every red cent he can get. Will his sacred Mormon underwear grant him the protection and money to buy this election? See for yourself as Mitt dons his tighty-whities sent down from the Good Lord Himself at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html

I am amazed at all the racist's still left in the USA the so called land of the free... Most hate the president because he is another color, he can never do right unless he is making the rich richer......Dem's clean their bbq's...Repub's buy new ones.... I once heard at a HOA meeting by a well known lady Realtor from indian wells how disgusting she thought our president was and what an embarrassment.....he is But I guess that's Indian Wells mentality Guess what indian wells your going to have him for another four years lolol
