This is where Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will face off in a highly anticipated political showdown. The 90-minute debate expected to draw a record number of viewers. With many wondering how the polarizing foes will clash in the pivotal encounter. Outside the perimeter at Hofstra, at least one passionate voter has let his objections to Trump go to is head. SOUNDBITE: TOM MORAN, PROTESTER FROM MICHIGAN, SAYING: "We came all the way from Michigan, because this election is, I'm kind of scared actually. It's not a normal election. If this man here, if he gets elected, I'm really worried." With the first debate coming six weeks ahead of the November 8th election, the stakes couldn't be higher with what could be a make-or-break night for both candidates.
