so when is the first debate meant to be? I fully expect Trump to pull out. and I fully expect for his behaviour to be allowed to continue unabated because nothing matters anymore.

Not until the fall. September 26. At least that's when it's scheduled now. All of the debates are more or less in the final month leading up to the election.

you guys are missing the story Trump wants to debate he just wants people to watch the debates

Quote:
Two of the three debates will be televised at the same time as an NFL game. On Sept. 26, the night of the first debate, ESPN will carry the Monday night game featuring the Falcons vs. the Saints. On Oct. 9, the second debate will air opposite the Sunday night game featuring the Giants vs. the Packers on NBC.

A Trump aide said Saturday that the Republican candidate "was made aware of the conflicting dates by a source close to the league." The aide was not authorized to speak by name and requested anonymity.

Hi troll

The debates were against NFL games last time, too. They do play on 3 of the 7 days of the week, with two of the 4 remaining days being Friday and Saturday.

And they've been set for over a year.

Try again.

I understand Trump's point...he wants the most viewers imaginable and he doesn't want NFL-watchers to be tuning out of the debates since that's the sort of crowd that would actually consider voting for him. The DNC might as well oblige him although it seems like they have been going through every hoop imaginable to not have people watching these debates even though it is Clinton's strength.

If he tries to weasel out after a schedule change, then he's obviously just chicken shit.

We'll just have to wait and see, but nobody can argue that Clinton and her camp haven't done everything they can to hide her from the public and media. No press conferences this year, a small handful of Democratic debates held on low viewership nights, etc.

Those of us on the left should be careful about having such nonexistent expectations for Trump in the debates. They call it the soft bigotry of low expectations. I offer this exchange from The West Wing:

Quote:
TOBY
These two men are going to be side by side on the stage, answering
questions. That's the ball game.

C.J.
If the whole thing is, he can't tie his shoelaces and it turns out he can,
then that is the ball game.
The bar is so low for Trump regarding the debates that if he comes out and gives even just an 'ok' performance as opposed to a 'holy-shit' level awful performance, then the next-day story every news outlet is running is 'hey, he actually wasn't completely terrible! Maybe he can be president!'.

This could also be compounded if Hillary were to have an off night. We're all expecting Hillary to dominate the debates, and she's certainly capable of it, but even great, brilliant debaters can have off nights(see that first Obama-Romney debate in 2012 where Obama didn't do great), and if Hillary has an off-night against Trump while he has an 'ok' night, watch out for the stories that get written.

I can't quite envisage a debate in which Hillary beats him. If she ever talks over him she'll get called hysterical. If she tries to just calmly present policy, she'll be called boring. If she counters with important facts, figures, anything of substance, I can just see Trump saying something outlandish, which he's done from the very start, and it will win people over, despite there being no substance whatsoever to what he's saying.

I don't think the debates are going to make people in the middle choose a side. I think all they'll do is push people more and more to the side they were already thinking. Or encourage people not to vote.

Or maybe they'll get Gary Johnson in there, that'd be a real mixup. I'm sure you've all heard it by now but... "Why choose between the left nut and the right nut when you can just have the Johnson?"
