PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Tonight, the Presidential candidates will square off in their 2nd debate, moderated by Anderson Cooper of CNN and Martha Raddatz of ABC.
The town hall style debate, held at Washington University in St. Louis will likely be very different from the first Presidential debate says Drexel University political analyst Dr. Bill Rosenberg.
“Rather than answering question that are posed by a moderator, they are going to be answering questions generally posed by people in the audience,” Rosenberg said.
And the candidates are able to move freely around the stage, which may be favorable to Hillary Clinton
“She seems to thrive on small group interactions.”
In addition to the debate moderators, undecided and independent voters will be asking questions.
Of course, among the topics expected to come up: Trump’s recent lewd comments about women.
“That would be Donald Trump’s opportunity to defend himself, but it seems like it’s kind of an indefensible space,” he said. “And that’s not really something that Hillary Clinton has to say anything about because that will probably surface in the debate itself.”
