The winner of tonight’s debate will depend on who you talk to. Trump supporters will say that he won and Biden supporters will say that Biden won.
Unless there is a moment like Reagan’s famous come back to Carter (“There you go again”) or (HW) Bush’s infamous checking his watch, I don’t think that the debate will have any real effect on the outcome of the election.
Thanks to 4 years of Trump’s divisive rhetoric, each side is pretty much entrenched in their positions.
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to watching the debate, specifically to observe the participant’s contrasting styles.
