Democratic Media Complex selects Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly
CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Fox News’s Megyn Kelly are the top choices to moderate the presidential debates, according to a new poll.
Cooper was the top selection in the #Morning Consult poll released Monday, with 34 percent. Kelly was second, at 25 percent.
In a survey conducted by The Hill earlier this month, NBC’s Lester Holt was the top choice of many media insiders to serve as moderator. He did not receive any votes in the Morning Consult poll.
Just 7 percent selected Chuck Todd of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while John Dickerson of CBS’s “Face the Nation” and George Stephanopoulos of ABC’s “This Week” garnered 5 and 4 percent, respectively.
The first presidential debate is set for Sept. 26 at Hofstra University on Long Island, N.Y.
