The Battle for the Youth Vote

September 23, 2016 at 6:28 pm

As November quickly approaches, the race for the White House is heating up. As the gap between the candidates narrows, the focus has fallen on obtaining the youth vote, which is sure to be a priority as they prepare for the first debate at Hofstra. What can we expect from this coming debate and what do Trump and Clinton need to do to appeal to younger voters? We talk directly to the students at Hofstra University for the answers. Host of Hofstra University’s Debate TV Michael Fuller and production student for the show Megan McGuire join us to give us a preview of what’s to come as the nation waits in anticipation for their school to take the national stage next week.
