Second Presidential Debate Format 19 October 2016

After a highly anticipated and heated first presidential debate, we will barely have time to catch our breath because the second debate will take place on October 19, just a few weeks away.

Certainly the first debate, which was viewed by some 100 million people via television and online media, was not exempt from controversy. After a good start, Donald Trump seemed to lose his way as he was mocked by Clinton about his tax returns and comments about women. Many in the Trump campaign have claimed that moderator Lester Holt was harsher on Trump compared to Clinton and "The Donald" also complained that his microphone had malfunctioned.

The second debate will have a Town Hall type format with undecided voters able to pose questions to the candidates during the first half of the event and then in the second the moderators will grill them with different questions.

The debate will take place at Washington University in St Louis and last for a total of 90 minutes beginning at 9pm ET, 8pm CT, 7pm MT and 6pm PT.
