Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden successfully attracted more viewers than his competitor President Donald Trump in the heavily anticipated town halls on Thursday. The former vice president's town hall was hosted by ABC, which attracted more than 14 million viewers as per Nielsen's prediction. On the other hand, Trump's town hall earned about 13.5 million viewers and was simultaneously telecasted on NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC. Although eleven million people tuned in to Trump's town hall on NBC News alone as reported by Variety, he could not beat Biden's viewership in total.
The Commission on Presidential debates proposed to conduct the second presidential debate virtually after Donald Trump announced that he tested positive for coronavirus. However, Trump showed no interest in participating in a virtual debate and termed it a waste of time. Following that, the Commission on Presidential debates canceled the second debate, paving the way for a town hall event by the Democratic presidential nominee. Townhall events of both the candidates received lesser views compared to presidential and vice-presidential debates. The first presidential debate between Trump and Joe Biden had a viewership of 73.1 million, and the vice-presidential debate had 57.9 million views as per Nielsen. With the second debate's cancellation, all the eyes are now on the third and the final debate before Election Day.
The final debate will take place on October 22nd, 2020, at the Curb Event Center at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. NBC host Kristen Welker will be the moderator for the debate. The final presidential debate will mostly focus on issues like a pandemic, climate change, and the White House race. Moderator Kristen Welker is also planning to ask questions about American families, national security, and leadership. As per the news cycle before the debate, the topics are subject to change. The Commission on Presidential debates is taking all necessary precautions for the candidates and the general public to tackle the coronavirus. Every individual must wear a mask without any deviation except for the candidates and the moderator during the debate. With just twelve days left after the debate, the third debate is considered to be the final nail in the coffin for Donald Trump, who is trailing Joe Biden in almost every national poll.
