Pressure is On For the First Presidential Debate Mike Vance September 26, 2016 News The presidential race is in a near dead heat. That being said, the pressure is on for the first presidential debate on Monday. Mind games are certainly being played. Trump has threatened to invite Gennifer Flowers to sit in the front row at the debate. She is the former lover of Bill Clinton. "It's a warning sign before the debate has even started about Donald Trump's lack of fitness, his bullying tactics that make him unfit to be president," Robbie Mook, Clinton's campaign manager said. Many analysts are projecting as many as 100 million viewers will be tuned in for the debate. With 6 weeks left until the election, it is getting to crunch time in this race. This will be Trump's first presidential debate. There is one opponent, one moderator and 90 minutes of intense questioning. Trump has promised to be "very respectful" toward Clinton.
