Presidential Debate

The highly anticipated first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump is over.

Locked in an exceedingly close White House race, the presidential rivals tangled for 90-minutes over their vastly different visions for the nation's future.

The debate was confrontational from the start, with Trump frequently trying to interrupt Clinton and speaking over her answers. Clinton was more measured and restrained, but also needled the sometimes-thin-skinned Trump over his business record and wealth.

The debate set expectations for the next two presidential debates. The final debate will be held at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center on Oct. 19.

Below are the results of the unscientific poll of Las Vegas Sun readers.
