This coming Monday, the focus will be on the first of three presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

“Last year's Super Bowl, I think, was about 115 – 120 million, so it would approach that. In 2012 the first debate between Romney and Obama had 67 million, it's easily going to surpass that and I would not be surprised with 100 million.


Just looking at the primaries, 25 million tuned in to the first republican debate in Cleveland, 17 million to the first democratic debate in Las Vegas so yes, surveys have shown that the vast majority of people plan on tuning in.”


That's Aaron Kall, Director of Debate at the University of Michigan, who adds that both Clinton and Trump are above average debaters with very different styles.
