2 undecided LI voters become Internet sensations

HEMPSTEAD - More than 80 undecided voters were in the audience at last night's presidential debate, but two have since become Internet sensations. Jeremy Epstein, a college junior from Valley Stream, asked President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney their first question. "What can you say to reassure me, more importantly my parents, that I will be able to sufficiently support myself after I graduate?" Epstein asked. The Adelphi student was just one of 11 undecided voters who posed questions to the candidates in last night's heated debate at Hofstra University. Katherine Fenton was another one. The 24-year-old Floral Park resident asked the candidates about equality for women in the workplace, yielding one of the most notorious answers of the night. "I went to a number of women's groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks?' And they brought us whole binders full of women," Romney responded. Both Epstein and Fenton say the debate was an incredible experience that will last a lifetime.President Obama, Mitt Romney face off in fiery debateVIDEO: Second presidential debate
