How to watch the first presidential debate between Biden and Trump

President Biden and former President Donald Trump face off over their first debate Thursday, the 2024 presidential election cycle, with much at stake as national polls showed the two candidates neck and neck.

CNN is hosting the first debate between the party’s two presumptive candidates on Thursday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT). The debate will also be simulcast on other networks, including CBS. It is expected to be 90 minutes long and include two commercial breaks.

THE debate will take place at CNN headquarters in Atlantawhere CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will moderate. Tapper and Bash have both moderated presidential debates before.

There will be no studio audience, ensuring that contestants will not be interrupted by anyone except other contestants or moderators. The absence of an audience also allows viewers to form their own opinions on the best candidates, without being influenced by public reactions.

CNN also says microphones will be muted when it is not a candidate’s turn to speak, a measure intended to limit interruptions.

Earlier this week, Mr. Biden retreated to Camp David with his team to prepare for the debate. Trump, deprived of Oval Office duties, has continued to hold rallies, including one in Racine, Wisconsin, on Tuesday. Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. did not qualify participate in the debate.

Trump and Mr. Biden are almost equal in the polls after Trump criminal conviction Last month in Manhattan, he was charged with falsifying business records 34 times. The majority of likely voters say Trump’s conviction is not a factor in their decision, and that issues like inflation and the border are much more important to them. As the first debate approaches, the Biden campaign has launched a campaign new tv commercial relying on Trump’s status as a “convicted felon.”

Thursday’s debate could feel like a repeat of 2020 to viewers, though the two candidates likely won’t be as physically distant as they were during the pandemic debates. Trump tested positive for COVID-19 just days after their September 29, 2020 presidential debate, the last time the two were on stage together.

The debate will also be simulcast on CBS television networks and streamed on CBS News. CBS Evening News anchor and editor Norah O’Donnell will present a special report, featuring analysis from CBS News political correspondents and analysts.
