Joe Biden and Donald Trump will debate for the final time before a limited audience at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. The debate gives Donald Trump one last chance to draw some support away from Joe Biden, who is the clear frontrunner with less than two weeks to go before election day.
For the first time in history, the microphones of the candidate not speaking will be muted during their opening two minute response to a question. After each candidate has used up their two minutes, both microphones will be turned on and the candidates will have the opportunity to engage each other for the remainder of each fifteen minute segment. The Trump campaign strongly criticized the move, but had little recourse other than to boycott the debate, which doesn't appear will happen.
The debate is Trump's final opportunity to directly engage Biden and don't be surprised if Trump gets personal fast. The only problem is that's what Trump did in the first debate and he was widely panned from all sides of the aisle over his performance. He came across as a bully and Biden's lead in the polls only rose higher after it was over, so if I were Biden I'd let Trump be Trump because it only seems to help Biden more. I'm not saying Biden should just roll over and let Trump walk all over him, but one of Biden's main appeals to many moderate and swing voters is his temperament and congeniality.
Whatever happens, it is sure to be an interesting final matchup between the two candidates. It's the final time the candidates will have the chance to speak to tens of millions of Americans at the same time before election day, so they better make the best of it.
