Fact Checking The 2nd Clinton-Trump Debate

October 8, 2016

Debate number two was slightly different from their first, following a town meeting format. Some of the questions were posed by the audience and the rest by co-moderators Martha Raddatz of ABC News and CNN's Anderson Cooper. According to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the audience participants were uncommitted voters chosen by Gallup.
