It’s Monday, September 26th. The day we have been waiting for ever since Donald Trump won the GOP nomination for President of the United States. Tonight is the first presidential debate in this incredibly bizarre election. Tonight we get to see Donald on stage next to Hillary. What will they say? How will they act?
How important is the presidential debate? I know the media would have us all believe that there is nothing more important. This is where we get to see the candidates shine or fail. Maybe one of them will completely lose it. We get to fact check everything single word they say. Let’s catch them in a lie.
Honestly, is there really anyone left who is undecided? At this point, how do you not have enough information to make an informed decision? Are you really going to change your mind based on how well someone performs in a debate? If you’ve watched any news for the past six months, you’ve seen both candidates more than you ever wanted.
But in all seriousness, this presidential debate is a big part of an important event. With ramifications not just in the United States, but around the world, we owe it to ourselves to make as informed a decision as possible. According to a recent Wall Street Journal / NBC poll, a third of voters are still undecided and the presidential debate will be a major influence on how they vote.
As far as actually watching the presidential debate, I’m planning to watch the live stream on Twitter. I’m curious to compare the experience with watching on television.
I’ll be online tonight during the debate if anyone wants to chat.
Readers, how important is the presidential debate to you? Are you planning to watch? If so, will you be watching on television, Twitter, or somewhere else?
