Vice-presidential debate expected to reassure voters


FARMVILLE, VA. (WLNS) – Following last week’s presidential debate a new CBS News poll shows Hillary Clinton has edged ahead of Donald Trump and now has a four point lead over the Republican.

The Clinton camp is hoping to keep that momentum going Tuesday with the first and only vice-presidential debate.

It’s Democrat Tim Kaine versus Republican Mike Pence and CBS political experts say the vice-presidential debate is all about reassuring voters in the general election.

There will be a broad number of topics to help people learn more about the candidates during the 90 minute discussion.

The non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates announced CBS News anchor Elaine Quijano as the moderator of the debate which will be divided into nine 10 minute segments.

Political analysts say that Indiana Governor Mike Pence is expected to show voters that he is the level-headed voice for Trump while Virginia Senator Tim Kaine works to build on Clinton’s momentum.

The match-off will take place at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

It airs Tuesday night on CBS at 9:00 p.m.
