    Anyone know the internet channel they are going to be on?

    Any predictions on how it's going to turn out?

    Debate will start at 9:00 ET tonight. It will air live on all major broadcast channels (ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, PBS) as well as C-Span, CNN, MSNBC, Fox Business, Fox News. I don't know about the internet.

    I prefer to not predict how it will turn out. We will know tonight.

    A lot will depend on Chris Wallace keeping Trump in line.

    If he starts lumbering around like Hulk Hogan he needs to be told to stay put or they will cuff him to the podium.

    He wants to focus on Hunter Biden. With all the relevant questions being asked, how will he introduce a dead issue without going off topic?

    Personally I hate interruptions from either side. Both sides get rebuttal time. Let me hear what each one says.

    Trump has his own personal lie detector. If it's facts, he's bored, sounds like he's reading the phone book. He is only animated by his alternative facts.

    I don't think it will matter, unless one of them really messes up.

    A dual pidgin chess match. Both birds knock over pieces at random, befoul the board with excrement and fly home to declare victory to an adoring flock.

    I would think so. And for anyone who cares, there is a third party debate also taking place. It is only on YouTube, I think. It starts at "6 pm Mountain Standard Time" which is 4 pm Eastern, isn't it?

    I don't know which candidates of which parties have agreed to show up for it, however. It won't include Jo Jorgensen of the Libertarian Party since she is intending to be in Cleveland where the Trump-Biden debate will be taking place.

    Biden seems to have put in much debate preparation, but the President not so much, We will see if that makes much difference.

    True. As concerns Biden, his people are able to prop him up for the length of time needed and prep him on what to say. He could well come across respectably, although Trump is likely to confront him more directly than the other Democrats did during the debates of the Primary Election season in which Biden participated.

    If a candidate really crashes and burns, he may lose some votes. And a candidate who takes off like a rocket may gain some. But I suspect most people have made up their minds which way they’ll vote. And the debates won’t make much difference.

    This would be a mistake, because it gives Biden an easy answer to bring up the allegations that Donald was illegally paying his kids to evade tax laws.

    Polling shows there are basically zero undecided voters. The debates aren't going to sway anyone. Motivate turn-out, on the other hand, is a possibility ... but a debate this far out doesn't really seem likely to do much there either.

    Actually the undecided middle is what will be persuaded.

    The base may be energized but the undecided middle is what wins elections...

    You hear all these polls about how this one is leading the other candidate by some margin and error percentage of -+ 5...
    But what you aren't hearing is undecided voters. And until the debates is when most people decide that are undecided.

    I’ll be watching! I just want to know if all of the people predicting that Biden would back out are feeling nervous or wondering if they e been duped by Russian bots again.

    I’m also wondering how these two old guys are going to be alert that late!
