The replacement events for the canceled presidential debate are over...and according to a number of people, there isn’t a definite “winner.” That’s especially interesting when you consider that former Vice President Joe Biden got 30 extra minutes of airtime.
Both President Trump’s and Biden’s events had their plusses and minuses – Biden had a friendly ‘moderator’ in ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, but had to own up to missteps like the 1994 Crime Bill. Trump clashed with NBC moderator Savannah Guthrie, but watchers say he really didn’t inflict any new damage on his campaign.
Beyond that, both men spent time talking about issues and what watchers say is that people actually got to hear answers instead of arguing, which was a plus.
