(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A group of UNLV students and professors have taken part in an election-year experiment.

During last night’s presidential debate, they used a pocket-sized audience response meter to help determine who won the town hall encounter.

The “Las Vegas Sun” says nine of the ten participants believed President Obama bested Mitt Romney.  Focus group leader Ryan Hamilton says the sample size was too small to be significant, but the meter resonses did result in lively discussion about the two candidates.

Hamilton hopes to use nearly 60 audience response meters for the third and final presidential debate this coming Monday.
