POLL: Half of Voters Relying on Presidential Debates to Decide

New Reuters/Ipsos Poll

Half of the country's likely voters say they will rely on high-profile debates between presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to help make their decision, according to a new poll.

The results of the Reuters/Ipsos poll were released Monday, hours before Trump and Clinton are slated to square off in the first of three presidential debates.

Some 50 percent of likely voters surveyed said they think the debates will help inform their decision. Of those, 10 percent say they aren't leaning toward either candidate.

Another 39 percent in the poll said the debates will not help inform their vote, while 11 percent are not sure how the debates would affect their decision.

The vast majority of likely voters surveyed in the new poll, 72 percent, said they want to see moderators call out a candidate when he or she says something that is untrue
