100 million viewers, many wondering say trump backers if clinton can prove she is health. this is going to be a grueling experience for both candidates and as someone who recently just got off her pneumonia bed this is a lot to ask. projecting honesty is her first goal. she recognizes she needs to earn the voters draft and tonight a great opportunity for her to do that. trump staffering say they are worried clinton will bait trump into turning off women voters he needs. >> him and confuse the people watching in such a way that he was somehow rude it a woman or somehow lied on the stage. >> reporter: a tight epping race adds to the drama. clinton up by five points until we in today's survey monkey poll but in battle ground state polls trump is surging ahead of clinton now in oh i he oh, iowa and north carolina, a tie in florida and colorado. hofstra hosted debates before. here it is extremely high here
the exhibition hall. we'll watch it here in the press filing center and we'll report on what happens over here at some of the press stand up positions. inside the hall only 1,000 people getting in, tickets going to students and to both campaigns. clinton has practiced quick answers. no lectures but aides say she will call trump dangerous. he practiced less and staffers say they don't know if serious trump or name calling attack trump will show the big debate. >> reporter: trough's running mate is expected to be in the audience. bill clinton, hillary's husband, is said to be joining her at the debate but it's not clear if he will be in the hall and at the white house we're told that president obama won't quite be watching tonight. he says he will be working but instead of monday night football on the tv he says the debate will likely be on in the background.
>> anchor: so dan there has been debate over the role of the moderator, whether this person should serve as a fact checker or just keep that debate going. has fact checking issue been settled at this point? folks who run the debate say they will leave the question answering and the question debating to the debators. the moderator will not be fact checking. it's up to each candidate to fact check each other. tonight's debate may be unlike any other we've seen in any past election and both candidates likely have very different strategies and goals. political editor andy hiller joins us with tonight's hiller instinct. i can't wait. kim, i don't care how many debates hilary clinton has been in before because she has never been this one like this because there has never been one like this. this is more than a debate. it's a spectacle. a show. donald trump is the showman who
campaign. they both have dues and don'ts. calmly and with precision clinton needs to provoke trump into saying something he will forever regret. trump hates to be insulted, maybe she should call him little donnie. what did you do when voters don't like you or trust you and you too often come across as cold and entitled? how about a smile? a real smile. for trump convince voters he is fit to be president, that he has a presidential temperaturement. if he acts dignified tonight his answer will be yes. i know politicians believe it or not better than you do. >> reporter: here is a quick specific. you know those faces trump makes during a debate? tonight he should leave them all in the green room. they are useless and only make hillary look good. just as there are opportunities, there are also obstacles for clinton and trump.
getting into a skunk fight with trump. if she gets into one she will smell like one i will only hurt her. before all, hillary cannot show any sign of any health problem. one coughing spell could actually cost her the white house. trump will and should criticize clinton but he must be careful not to cross the line and harass her. the last thing trump wants to create for hillary is sympathy. finally, trump must recognize he historical upset. if he is as good at the at of the deal as he claims, then tonight he has to close it. how big is tonight's debate? well compared to sports it's bigger than big papi and tom brady combined and in term of our country it's as big as our future. live in the newsroom, andy hiller, that's my instinct. >> anchor: all right need to watch this bee bait on 7 nbc and we'll have complete coverage of
dan hausle as you see is in new york around you can count on political editor andy hiller for his instinct and analysis tonight at 11:00. >> anchor: a story you will see on just one station a vfw post in revere vandalized with anti-trump graffiti. an american flag mural covered in curse words all caught on camera when spray was put there. steve cooper willive in revere for to us tell us more. steve? so members of the post are outraged tonight and so too is the police chief who says the i am speechless because it's such a disgrace. >> reporter: anti-trump graffiti with a swear word we blurred out spray painted over the american flag on the side of the vfw post 4524 here in revere outraging everyone. this isn't a joke. you know what i mean? it's not anywhere you joke. it happened early saturday and was caught on camera. first at 4:30 a.m. you can see
