With viewership predicted to rival that of the Super Bowl, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are facing off Monday night for their first of three televised debates.
The debate, taking place at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, is set to run from 9 to 10:30 p.m EST.
Among the questions heading into the debate: which Donald Trump will America see? The attack dog who decimated “Low-Energy” Jeb Bush, “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz and “Little Marco” Rubio during the Republican primary debates? Or the measured, sober-minded Trump who looked presidential while standing next to the president of Mexico last month?
Will Clinton try to provoke Trump into overreacting with counter-punches in ways that could turn off voters? Or will she ignore attacks from Trump and try to make herself look like a more knowledgable and serious contender?
Will Clinton face tough questions on Benghazi, the email scandal and her health? Will Trump bring up the sordid scandals of the Clinton presidency years?
Will the moderator give into the pressure by those who say the moderator should “fact check” the candidates in real time — despite the backlash after CNN’s Candy Crowley bungled her attempt to do that to Mitt Romney four years ago?
According to the debate commission, Lester Holt of NBC News, who will moderate, will ask questions based on “America’s direction,” “achieving prosperity” and “securing America” topics.
The debate will run for 90 minutes without any commercial breaks. It’s estimated the debate could have more than 100 million viewers. (111 million people watched the Super Bowl last year. In 2012, the first two debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney averaged 66.4 million viewers).
