Poll: Who voters think should moderate the presidential debates

About four out of 10 independents (41 percent) and Democrats (40 percent) want Cooper, while half as many Republicans (20 percent) selected his name.

The announcement of who will moderate the debates has been delayed, in part, by fears that they could be attacked by the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, CNN reported. Trump has made no secret his distain for members of the new media and, at one point, made attacking them a central message of his campaign.
