Jasmeet Singh started this petition to Commission on Presidental Debates

Reasons:
1. Audience applause/laughter/heckling wastes precious debate time.
2. Candidates are incentivized to say things that make the audience cheer instead of having a healthy and critical conversation about policy.
3. It eliminates the possibility of audience reaction influencing the judgement of people watching on television or the internet. In other words, everyone watching has the opportunity to judge for themselves.

Substantive debate should guide our path to choosing a party nominee (and president). Not sound bites.
