On Sunday, October 9, 2016, the second Presidential Debatecomes a couple of days after the airing of a videotape of Donald Trump using vulgar language as he talked about having his way with women. Everyone is wondering how the scandal will come up in the debate. One thing for sure is that the moderators have adjusted their questions because of the videotape. The moderatorsare Anderson Cooper of CNN and Martha Raddatz of NBC. It has been reported that the first set of questions the moderators will ask will be about the 2005 Trump video.

Second Presidential Debate

The second Presidential Debate,held at Washington University in St. Louis, will be different from the first Presidential Debate that was held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. For instance, the current debate is in a town hall format unlike the first one. Lester Holt of NBC was the only moderator for the first debate on September 26.

As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton face off in the current debate, a male moderator and a female moderator will ask the questions to a male and female.

Therefore, no one can say there is gender bias or favoritism. Just as with the first Presidential Debate, Secretary Hillary Clinton won the coin toss to speak first, and the first question will be about theAccess Hollywoodvideotape.

Participants at the debate

All forty uncommitted voters were selected by Gallup to sit on the stage to hear answers to their questions that were submitted to the moderators on Sunday morning.

More than likely, some of their questions are about the latest development with Trump and the Republican Party. Cooper and Raddatz met Sunday morning and reviewed the questions to be asked during the 90-minute live debate.

The debate commission has assured the public that moderators are in complete control of selecting the questions to be asked. Cooper and Raddatz will ask follow-up questions based on the main question.

Because the debate is in a town hall format, half the questions will come from uncommitted voters in the debate hall. The other questions have been selected from among voters' questions on social media. Perhaps a concern you have will be addressed during the second Presidential Debate.
