This, the second presidential debate, will be in a “town meeting,” or “town hall” format, “in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues,” 2012 Election Central notes:
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.
