- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump go Sunday for the second time with each other in debate, but in a different format than the previous time. This time the presidential candidates do not stand behind a lectern, but answer questions from voters in the audience. The debate starts at 03.00 hours Dutch time.
Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Ross Perot were in 1992, the first presidential candidates who took part in a so-called town hall debate. These debates are much more informal, but at the same time playing the physical appearance of the candidates a much more important role.
Candidates running around during the debate, leaving aspects such as their position on the stage, their body language and their facial expression are also important during the dialogue with the voters. Bush Senior made a blunder by while someone in the audience asked him a question, looking at his watch. Many viewers read this as a lack of interest in the concerns of voters.
One of the big questions is how Trump there Sunday to sin. He gained little experience during the campaign with a townhall format.
