The Sun News’ Robert Morris previewing tonight’s debate on FNC by interviewing questioner Chris Wallace…
How are you going to choose questions?
We are going to divvy up subject areas - the economy, national security - then each of us will be responsible for a couple of subject areas.
We’re also looking for points of difference, where one person has said one thing about how to approach an area and somebody else may have a different idea.
The hope is to get a conversation going amongst the candidates about their different approaches to the same problem.
What kind of research goes into the questions?
You want to see what their positions are on the issues, what they’ve said, what they’ve said critically about each other, what outside experts have said about their policies. I’m going to look at some of the exit polls that indicate what voters’ interests and opinions are, look at past debates and what they’ve said in the past to and about each other.
