The US presidential elections are just round the corner and the tensions are rising. The debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden has sparked a lot of questions in the Americans. The debate was all over the place and people called it messy, bitter, chaos and many other words resonating the train wreck of the debate it was.
NBC’s Chuck Todd called the debate “a train wreck” while CNN’s Jake Trapper called it “a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” Both candidates were extremely disrespectful to one another, hauling personal attacks and interrupting one another. Moderator Chris Wallace struggled to take control of the debate as both of them created a mess of the debate. From Joe Biden calling Donald Trump, a clown to Donald Trump referring to the coronavirus as the Chinese virus, it was an international disaster.
The public opinion matters the most and from the looks of it, they didn’t like it very much. People are angry and surprised how bad the debate went. Though, many reasonable questions were raised about the pandemic, white supremacy, as well as the economy but Biden and Trump wouldn’t stop their interruptions and personal attacks that they failed in their attempt to prove their point to the Americans.
However, the big question remains; who won the debate? With initial polls released, there is a statistical result. Despite the stats, you can say that American people lost. Majority of the people reported that they were annoyed by the debate and that the tone was negative. As far as winning is concerned, people had mixed opinions over it.
