The Second Presidential Debate Will Try Something New

"Viewers unhappy with the questions asked at Monday night’s debate will have a shot to weigh in before Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton meet again on October 9: For the first time, the networks producing the town-hall style debate have agreed to accept questions voted on through the internet."

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/09/in-debate-two-the-questions-are-on-the-ballot/501791/

IMO, this isn't going to end well ... for Trump.

Opening up questions to the internet is kind of like throwing an all-you-can eat buffet for a hungry pack of bears.

1. 'How many mistresses have you had vs. how many wives?'

'And since your current temporary wife was both, feel free to count her twice.'

2. Check out the questions. Most of them are right wing dog whistles.

14. Lots of good ones, but both kinds are REASON TO GO VOTE!

Just invested some time, and thanks, Cage. "Invested" because there are a lot of them already.

* Many available on same topics, so can hit a bunch in chosen categories to push them,
such as climate change or income distribution.

* Important to READ the brief description to find out if it's real or pushing a right-wing agenda.

* Can't undo a choice, so read the descriptions. Watch out for HRC-attack questions.

3. "Will you legalize marijuana?" "Are there aliens?"

"Do you commit to making cats the national pet?"

7. That naturally makes me want to ask

"Will the wall be tall enough to keep out the aliens from outer-space?"

4. This is an invitation for trolling.

Both for Trump and Hillary. For Hillary, every question will be Clinton Foundation, Benghazi, or Emails. Every single fucking one.

6. Looks like the Repgnants are flooding these questions.

Going to be quite biased if they take these votes as indicators.

8. I'm guessing it will be Benghazi and email questions. Probably lots of RW orgainizing going on.

10. I hope that

I hope that the moderators will be able to see and weed out the biased questions. I'm also expecting some script kiddie from the depths of Reddit's alt-right hellhole to make a bot that will vote for a single question a million times.

In rating a bad idea on a scale of 1 to 10, this rates about a -87.

16. Since so many are right wing questions DUers should go and vote for the ones we want!

You can vote on as many questions as you want:
