Stretch is moderating. Facebook is co-sponsoring. But I promise you no sense will be made.

Leading into this debate, Facebook has been carefully gauging the mood of voters in both Iowa and New Hampshire, but also across the country. By using Facebook, users have been commenting on the Meet The Press page and asking exactly what they want to see in the debate. Also they've been talking with each other too as they post comments. Facebook and NBC have also been asking voting-age users in specific key areas what they think are the key issues going into the debate:

Economy 58%
Federal Deficit 19%
Healthcare 11%
Illegal Immigration 6%
Foreign Policy 5%

While the core of the data is coming from people they surveyed in New Hampshire and Iowa, they are allowing anyone to pose a question to the candidates on the Meet The Press Facebook page.

The debate will be streaming on NBC, MSNBC and the Meet The Press Facebook page.

Let us know if you see any clipworthy moments.
