2020 Presidential Election Debate Odds: 86% Chance Joe Biden Beats Donald Trump In Final Debate
Thursday night's final Presidential election debate could have huge consequences on the outcome of the 2020 US election. With just under two weeks to go until the big day, this will be one of the final times either Donald Trump or Joe Biden has the chance to get one over on their counter-part.
Joe Biden and Donald Trump were set to go head-to-head in three debates, but Thursday's event will be the second and final meeting between the pair before election day. The previous debate was set to be a virtual affair due to Donald Trump's coronavirus scare, however, the current POTUS wasn't too keen on that arrangement.
The final election debate will be held in Nashville on Thursday (22nd October) night and will be hosted by NBC's Kristen Welker. The debate will consist of six fifteen-minute sections on different topics chosen by Welker. To void the embarrassment caused by the first election debate, both Donald Trump's and Joe Biden's microphones will be muted during the oppositions two-minute segment. Don't worry though, there will be plenty of time for arguing and shouting over each other once the two minutes is up!
