■ Exit poll of secondary students at
Children's Museum debate reveal
they would vote for Andy Homing.
By W a rre n S o b a t
While Joseph Lieberman and Dick
Cheney were girding their loins for battle in the
Vice-Presidential debate last week, a debate of
a different sort was being conducted at the
Indianapolis Children’s Museum.
Gubernatorial candidates Andrew
Homing. Congressman David McIntosh, and
Governor Frank O'Bannon met in front o f 285
students and teachers from local elementary,
middle and high schools. Also included among
the questioners were four schools from
throughout the state linked to the auditorium
by satellite.
And what resulted may be one o f the most
informative debates that will be conducted for
this election season.
Students fired questions at the three can­
didates for one hour. Education was the order
of the day in opening statements as each candi­
date expressed his views on the current situa­
tion and the future o f Indiana's schools.
Apparently the students had other agendas.
The first question w as whether candidates
favored a moratorium on the death penalty.
O'Bannon. the Democratic incumbent, and
McIntosh, the Republican hopeful, did not
favor such a m oratorium, claiming some
crimes justified such a reprisal.
H oming, the Libertarian contender,
favored such a move and had in fact already
called for the cessation. While some chines
may justify capitol punishment. Homing said,
the poor are disadvantaged in such cases, and
under the current system, such punishment is
“based on vengeance.**
Students loved Homing's reply to the
question “why do you want to be governor?**
asked by a student at S t Patrick's School. The
Libertarian flatly stated, “I hate politics."
In an informal exit poll conducted by
teacher Christy Chappell of her Decatur
Central High School students. Homing won
with 37 percent, followed by O'Bannon with
29 percent. McIntosh brought up the rear with
22 percent. Six of the students didn't respood.
