Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when FOX News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama. Mitt Romney's wife Ann was also sitting with the debate participants.

So who, besides Michelle, was doing all the clapping? The press? Was there an extra audience somewhere?

It was coming from the press, who were being served beer during the whole debate.

Reporters Preparing to Cover Debate By Drinking Free Beer

http://politicker.com/2012/10/reporters-preparing-to-cover-debate-by-drinking-free-beer/

Some of the reporters covering tonight’s presidential debate at Hofstra University in Long Island may be F.W.I.–filing while intoxicated. Anheuser-Busch is apparently a sponsor of tonight’s rhetorical battle and the beer company has set up a “hospitality tent” outside the media filing center where reporters are being treated to free food, brews and souvenir glasses.

The beers being served at the debate are apparently Anheuser-Busch’s “small batch” brews. Bartenders inside the tent confirmed they were indeed quite “busy” this evening.
