Encore: September 25, 2016

Tonight is a political television event months in the making. Anticipated to have more viewers around the nation than the Super Bowl, the first presidential debate at Hofstra University is supposed to pull an audience of approximately 100 million people. But with 40 days to go before Election Day, numbers, polls, and ratings are becoming more important than ever. Polls have been crunching numbers non-stop. Currently, Bloomberg.com says it’s a dead heat with a 46 percent tie between the candidates and Nate Silver at 538.com predicts 51.5 percent for Clinton and 48.5 percent for Trump. While the gap closes between the candidates, things are sure to be different by this time tomorrow, and we will have the latest tomorrow night with an in-depth analysis of what’s to come.
