With Debate in Sight, Swing Voters Hard to Find

Tonight's presidential debate format calls for the moderator, Charles Gibson of ABC News, to ask the candidates questions submitted by an audience of undecided voters, who were hand picked by the Gallup organization. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll, about how audience members were selected.
