ANCHOR: Recapping last night`s U.S. presidential debate. This is CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz.
以下になぜ候補者が2人なのかがしるされています。15%の得票が最低でも必要だからです。


There are other candidates. Why just those two on the debate stage? Because you take part in the U.S. presidential debate, the Commission on Presidential Debates requires candidates to have the support of at least 15 percent of voters in national polls. Only Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump had that.
