    I wish I had posted this sooner. Nonetheless, I was very impressed with the moderator. I thought the format and moderation worked in Trump's favor, in that it remained structured. I am curious if anyone else watched it.

    I might some day. I've heard Trump won that debate by a small margin.

    I wish the moderator had actual power to mute them both. They both talked out of turn a lot, it was very frustrating to watch.
    Neither one of them answered many questions, just gave the same cardboard non-answers. Honestly the whole thing felt like a huge waste of time. Certainly not a proper debate of any kind.

    I judge the last debate to be only 10% as offensive as the first.
    I base this upon having heard neither.

    I thought it went well for both of them and that the moderation was great.

    I didn't watch it, but I asked around, and heard Biden won.

    Not sure what the value of the debate was. The undecideds in the battleground states have finally begun making up their minds and according to the polling they are breaking for Biden 46 times more often than they're breaking for Trump.

    Am I (the Canuck) the only one who actually watched the debate from start to finish? (Oh, wait, my lover watched it, too, but he's also from Canuckistan -- although from Calgary.)

    But for the record, as somebody who watched and listened carefully, in my personal view, Biden won it handily. Trump has so very few redeeming qualities -- but of course, since nobody's actually listening to all these debates, how would you know?

    My basis for agreeing with you is utter and complete bias based on what I read.

    I've heard the opposite. I've also heard the mute button won.

    It was a good debate, mostly even in the first part, but later in the debate Biden actually started to mess up his numbers and Trump started to land strong points. The moderator was quite good through out.

    IMO, Biden had done himself in with accusing Trump of changing the topic of conversation —from debating the topic of China of saying that Trump was eluding the topic when in fact Trump actually stayed on point.
    The Incoherence of Biden completely shifted the debate over to favor Trump at that moment.
