GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: We're just about out of time. But as you know, we're reaching out to a different audience here online. We're asking all the candidates a series of quick questions, just to have a little bit of fun at the end here. What's the worst job you ever had?

MITT ROMNEY: Bailing hay at the ranch I worked on. I'm allergic to hay.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: That counts. TV guilty pleasure?

MITT ROMNEY: Watching Modern Family with my wife.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Totally a guilty pleasure. Great show. Favorite junk food?

MITT ROMNEY: Let's see. I love good pretzels and-- peanut M&M's.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Boy, we're on the same page on a lot of this stuff. [Happinest day of your life] other than wedding day and birth of children?
