“Who will win the debates, Trump or Clinton?”
That’s the big question today as viewers prepare to watch the first debate between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. While there’s no sure answer to who will win the debates, there are some predictions.
“When it’s over, there should be an even split in polls as to who “won,” but with perhaps more leaning slightly towards Clinton.” — Bobby Ilich, International Business Times.
“Based on the 13 keys, it would predict a Donald Trump victory. Remember, six keys and you’re out, and right now the Democrats are out — for sure — five keys,” Professor Allan Lichtman told The Washington Post.
“Donald Trump will defeat Hillary Clinton in tonight’s highly anticipated first presidential debate,” Chauncey DeVega, Salon.
Bill O’Reilly’s told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview that either Trump or Clinton would lose if they resorted to name calling during the debate.
Political expert Dr. Waymon Burke told Waay 31 that the debate will come down to expectations and that presentation may be more important than issues.
The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will take place at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It is being held at Hofstra University and will run for 90 minutes without any commercial breaks. Read
