President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden spar as moderator Chris Wallace tries to bring order to the debate at Case Western University in Cleveland on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020.

The first presidential debate was a shouting match. The second debate was canceled when President Trump came down with the coronavirus and refused to participate in a virtual match-up. Now the final debate is set for Thursday in Nashville.

There are some changes for this final showdown. Microphones will be muted when it is not a candidate's turn to speak.

With less than two weeks before the election, Trump continues to trail former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits in national polls. Will the final debate sway the minds of any voters? Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the debate are Ohio District 31 State Representative Brigid Kelly; and Republican National Committee National spokesperson Liz Harrington.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
