The Commission announced the final presidential debate will include turning off the mics of the two candidates, the Associated Press reported (AP).
The new rul is to ensure each one can deliver their remarks on each topic.
The other candidate’s mic will be muted for two-minutes, while the other one is speaking, and vice versa.
Moreover, the remaining minutes of each 15-minute segment of the debate will be an open discussion, without mic muting.
According to the bipartisan Commission, “both campaigns” have reaffirmed “to the two-minute, uninterrupted rule,” per Deadline.
According to US President Trump’s campaign manager, Bill Stepien, the president calls the commission “biased” due to its last-minute rule changes.
However, despite that, the president is “committed to debating Joe Biden,” Stepien added, per AP.
The Biden campaign, on the other hand, demands the president produce a negative COVID-19 result for their final battle on Thursday, Deadline reported.
Negative and Annoying
The last Presidential debate has been a disaster, according to viewers, with each candidate interrupting and talking over each other.
In fact, according to a poll launched by CBS News on the day of the debate, more than 80% of the viewers describe the debate’s tone as negative.
Those viewers include supporters of each candidate.
In addition, only a small number of viewers found the debate informative.
69% of the viewers said it annoyed them.
Many viewers also think it has been a disgrace worldwide.
The Global Times, China’s state media, commented that the debate did not discuss much on policies.
In addition, there’s just “noise and quarreling.”
According to the Global Times, Chinese viewers of the event said that it sounded more like a “low-quality talk show.”
