Town Hall Participants

I’m sure all these questioners are well-intentioned, decent folks. But it would be great if we could learn something about who these people are; ie, have they donated to campaigns?; are they declared supporters?; have they ever worked for candidates of either party?; are they union members, veterans, etc? The press apparently had the list of all the questioners in advance, including in what order their questions would come. Couldn’t one network get up a chyron with some relevant background on each person who asks a question?
