For 24 hours, a Twitter poll asked students if they planned to watch the first Presidential Debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Of the 169 respondents, 87 participants indicated they plan to watch it and 27 said they weren’t “sure yet.”

Additionally, 17 people said they weren’t aware of the debate. The remaining 28 respondents said there’s “not a chance” they would watch.
