Running Mate is a US election podcast – just for Brits. In our sixth episode, we look at whether the four upcoming TV debates will matter at all to the outcome of the election.
They explain how the presidential debates often just serve to cement existing opinions of the candidates – but that both Donald Trump and Joe Biden will be looking to avoid an embarrassing gaffe that goes viral.
We also talk to Will Tooke, supervising video producer for HuffPost in the US, who has pulled together some of the best and worst moments from US TV debates of the past.
