So, for those of you who care, the third presidential debate will be held today, October 19th, at 9PM. It will be held in Las Vegas.

The debate will be moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News (which is unfortunate since only a woman, as proved by the VP debate, can keep them in line). Topics will include debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots, and fitness to be president (presuming they stop insulting each other for a moment). Who do you think will win?

And also, does it really matter who will win. This election is already decided

I'm sorry PetersSmith, a straight answer is the Clintons will win. As for the questions, they don't matter the object of the is to appear that you are answering the question as you change the subject.
To a candidate, the debates are another opportunity to make a speech to people that will make it more likely you will vote for them. After changing the subject this is what they will do.
The Clintons have been doing doing stuff like this since they were in law school, I don't expect Trump will learn how to do this well by tonight.

This.

And I won't even bother watching this pointless third debate. It is unreasonable to expect any movement in the polls. Hillary's victory is all but certain at this point (http://election.princeton.edu...).

They will use most of the time to take jabs at each other. Nothing of substance will be discussed. I'll be a waste of time to watch and both sides will claim the win in the end. These debates have turned into a real bad dog and pony show that feeds into the worst of pop culture; a Jerry Springer show mentality. It's too bad that the higherst office in the land has turned into a farce. The American people deserve better than these two.

So apparently Trump is bringing Obama's half-brother to this debate. Is this really the best he can do? Unless Obama's half-brother pulls out a Kenyan birth certificate with Obama's name on it, he will make no difference.

The time has run out for Trump to convince the general voter that he is not a raving lunatic. Trump's base will see every line by Trump as a clear win. Hillary will be her usual non-exciting pragmatic self and will let Trump keep digging his hole deeper and deeper. I cannot see Trump bringing back all the voters that he spent the last 6 months pushing away.
