How to watch the second presidential debate on CNN

Posted October 08, 2016

Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, told reporters on Thursday that he expects Trump to be "much better prepared" on Sunday for the second presidential debate and not use "the kind of personal and harsh attacks that he has been threatening".

Clinton leads Trump in the Nashville area by a 40 to 38 percent and also leads Trump in West Tennessee, which includes Democratic-dominant Memphis, by a 46 to 28 percent margin. It will feature questions from a live audience and a team of moderators consisting of CNN's Anderson Cooper and ABC News's Martha Raddatz. At the candidates' first debate, she said, "He says it's a secret plan, but the only secret is that he has no plan".

During a discussion on Tuesday's show, cohost Mika Brzezinski praised the Republican presidential nominee's reaction to Saturday's New York Times revelation about Trump's massive loss he reported in 1995.

Clinton is a dedicated student, making no secret of her affection for detailed briefing books and challenging mock debates. All of the questions were handpicked on Thursday night, and many of them were laughably soft - including one asking Trump about his most important early childhood memory.

Kaine repeatedly sought to persuade Pence to defend Trump's positions, but Pence steadfastly refused to take the bait. "We may differ on how we will cast our ballots in November but none of us will vote for Donald Trump".

The Republican nominee repeatedly mentioned the heroin epidemic that has hit New Hampshire especially hard and emphasized his hard-line approach to border security as a means for fighting the flow of drugs.

Trump's words are what experts call body shaming.

Christie endorsed Trump days after the New Jersey governor ended his White House bid, after a disappointing finish in New Hampshire's presidential primary.

But Trump also emphasized this late addition to his campaign schedule had nothing to do with anything else. Trump promised Page Six he wouldn't be bringing it up after all, saying, "I want to win this election on my policies for the future, not on Bill Clinton's past".

Still, Trump offered some insight into the performance he may deliver on Sunday - one peppered with jokes and his knack for storytelling, time permitting.

Donald Trump's question-and-answer session in New Hampshire had all the trappings of a town hall debate.

Carr said at the outset that Trump would field about 20 questions.

"But even if he does show up a little more disciplined than last time, I don't think he'll get a second chance to make a first impression", Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said of the town hall format.
