The first Presidential debate of the 2016 election season takes place tonight and promises to be the most watched of its kind in history. Polls show both candidates neck and neck (some are showing Trump with a lead). This morning, Nate Silver, the sports analyst who also analyzes the elections, says that Trump would win by 54% if the election were held today!
Is Hillary scared? It sure looks like she is! Her campaign is continuing to pressure the debate committee to have moderator Lester Holt “fact check” everything Trump says tonight, you know, a la Candy Crowley!
You will be able to watch the debate even if you don’t have cable. It will be shown on all broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX), as well as all news channels (FOX, CNN, and MSNBC). It is scheduled to begin at 9 pm Eastern (6 pm Pacific).
