Just hours ahead of Monday night’s political showdown between 
democrat Hillary Clinton and republican Donald Trump, we met up with a group of Lynn University students.

Of the seven students we spoke with, most had already made up their minds going into the first debate.
 
“Either way it’s not going to change my decision,” said 21 year old Karl Ellison.
 
Some were for Clinton others for Trump.
 
We did find Austin O’Donnell, a junior, who says he’s an undecided voter going into the first debate.
 
“I’m really looking for the grass-roots conservatism that’s really gotten me into the conservatism and the republican party,” said O’Donnell.
 
He’s a registered republican but still isn't sold on Trump just yet.  
Austin hopes Monday night’s face-off will help him decide.
 
“I think it will,” said O’Donnell. “I haven’t ruled out the possibility of a third party.”
 
What we also found, undecided or not, most of these students have decided who they are not voting for.
 
“I would not cross the line for Hillary Clinton no,” said O’Donnell.
 
“I’m not voting for trump,” said student Sarah Henry.
 
While most say the first debate won't sway their vote, they do say there is certainly an entertainment aspect to watching it.
 
“I think if I was Lester Holt I’d be hiding under my covers dreading tonight,” said Henry.
