The road to Rolla: Day 3

Robin Lustig | 00:55 UK time, Friday, 5 September 2008

I've finally made it to Rolla, a typical middle American town set in rolling green hills about 100 miles south-west of St Louis, half way to Springfield.

On the way in to town, we passed a sign next to the highway: "Rolla: the center of everywhere". Which, of course, is why we have come. There are the same number of Americans living between here and Canada as there are between here and Mexico; the same number between here and the Pacific as between here and the Atlantic. This is truly the middle of middle America.

So what's on voters' minds? You'll have to listen to tomorrow's edition of The World Tonight to find out. We've already lots of questions sent in by email, and we expect to get plenty more when voters arrive for the show at the Missouri University of Science and Technology tomorrow afternoon. If you're in the area, you're more than welcome to show up. We'll be in the Leach Theater, and the programme goes on air live at 4pm local time.
