The final presidential debate takes place tonight (Thursday, October 22nd), with topics for the final head-to-head between Donald Trump and Joe Biden now known.

The final debate is scheduled to take place at the Curb Event Center at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, with Kristen Welker of NBC moderating.

This debate would have been the third debate, but is now only the second following the cancellation of the October 15 debate.

Earlier this month, the Commission on Presidential Debates had announced plans to hold the second debate virtually only for President Trump to reject the idea.

Topics to be discussed are:

  • Fighting COVID-19
  • American Families
  • Race in America
  • Climate Change
  • National Security
  • Leadership

At time of writing it is Mr Biden who is the bookmakers’ favourite to come out on top once again. After being declared the winner of the first Presidential Election debate, Biden is just 1/6 with Ladbrokes to win the final debate, with Trump 7/2 to score higher with viewers.

Based on a CNN Snap Poll, Biden won the first debate with 60% of the vote compared to Trump's 28%.
