Today during Here and Now, WFPL host Jonathan Bastian spent about 10 minutes with WFPL’s political editor, Phillip M. Bailey, and Kentucky Public Radio’s capital bureau chief, Kenny Colston, discussing tonight’s presidential debate. 

They consider the current voter polls going into the debate; latest jobs and economy figures; possible pressure for debate moderator Jim Lehrer to deviate from the expected script; the significance of the location, Colorado; and the pressure on Romney to deliver an aggressive performance.
