Democratic presidential debate tonight: StartÂ time, how to watch MSNBC New Hampshire debate live stream freeÂ
Tonightâ€™s democratic presidential debate is going to be stormy. This is something that everyone agrees upon. Nonetheless people are unsure as to how stormy the debate is going to be.
Democratic nomination has started looking a tough fight now for Hillary Clinton. Merely two months ago, people had started taking her candidature as fait accompli. But then Bernie Sandersâ€™ socialist ideas started having an impact on his audience.
There is no denying the fact that despite not having the sort of finances that former secretary of state has at her disposal, Sandersâ€™ campaign is proving to be very effective. The 74-year old Senator from Vermont seems to be attracting larger number of young voters than Hillary Clinton. His great showing in Iowa was also thanks to the younger caucus goers coming in large number.
In the meantime after days of uncertainty the Democratic National Committee announced Wednesday that there will be a presidential debate Thursday night between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire. The DNC also said that Democrat candidates will have one extra debate in March and two other debates later. Earlier Democratic National Committee was not prepared to allow more debates. Bernie Sanders and his supporters were asking for more debates and alleged that DNC was not allowing them space against Clinton.
In the meantime the agreement on the expanded schedule will bring to 10 the total number of Democratic debates held or scheduled this primary season, up from the original six that were scheduled. The New Hampshire debateâ€”to be held at the University of New Hampshire in Durhamâ€”was originally proposed by MSNBC and the Manchester Union Leader. Mrs. Clinton agreed to participate, but Mr. Sanders said he would only go along if she agreed to three more over the spring.
After days of confusion and fears over its fate, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued a statement yesterday confirming the Thursday debate and saying the candidates had also agreed to a March 6 debate in Flint. The Clinton campaign had proposed the Flint venue, but Mr. Sanders suggested other locations, including his hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y.
