“I think that this is an opportunity for voters to decide for themselves how they feel about the candidates in general,” said Stephen J. Farnsworth, professor of political science at UMW.
Much of politics today is about the “nasty attack ads” targeting the opposing candidate, Farnsworth said, but debates are a very useful alternative.
“These debates offer the opportunity for more policy oriented, serious conversation about where the country should go in the years ahead,” he said.
