What is it?
- Last night, President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden held their own separate town hall events, forgoing the scheduled second presidential debate.
- Following the first presidential debate, Democrats and Republicans alike criticized both candidates’ disregard for civic debate. If another debate were to happen, many have called for changes to the debate format including time limits and live fact checking.
- The second presidential debate, initially planned for October 15th was cancelled after President Trump refused to participate in the debate in a virtual format. Others have objected to the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19 after the President and several White House staff members tested positive for the coronavirus.
Why is it important?
- Despite the low number of undecided voters (6%), some experts argue that increased early and mail-in voting are increasing the potential impact of debates on the final choice of undecideds.
- The coronavirus outbreak in the White House has worried many about the possibility of contagion by attendees despite social distancing.
