Miami, Florida (PRWEB) October 17, 2016

The first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump was watched by well over 80 million people, according to Nielsen. This set a new record in the sixty-year history of televised presidential debates. According to Nielsen, the debate averaged a total of 84 million viewers across 13 of the TV channels that carried it live. The presidential hopefuls clashed on several issues, and here The Plato Group have reviewed points to consider.

Jobs and the economy

The debate commenced with the candidate's different approaches to the question of Americans' wealth and work. Clinton made reference to it being her granddaughter Charlotte's second birthday and pledged to achieve gender equality in the workplace and increase taxes for the wealthy. Trump stated that the US had lost jobs to Mexico and industry to China, and he promised to reinvigorate the economy by lowering taxes, renegotiating trade deals and cutting regulation.

Racial tensions

With tensions rising in the wake of police shootings that have provoked outrage across the US, Clinton outlined her approach to healing the divide, stating that gun violence is the leading cause of death among young African-American men and that tackling the "plague of gun violence" is critical. The candidates argued on "stop and frisk" laws, with Trump claiming a judge's ruling that the practice was unconstitutional was wrong.

Gun laws

The controversial topic of gun regulations saw a rare point of agreement between the candidates, with Trump stating that he supported Clinton's view that people on watch or no-fly lists should have restrictions on their ability to own a gun.


Trump first accused Clinton of leaking tactics to Islamic State and criticized the Obama administration for the dominance of the terror group. Clinton stated that she was hopeful that IS would be eliminated by the end of the year, declaring that taking out its leaders is her top priority should she be voted into office.

Fitness to serve

After much attention on Clinton's health recently, the Democratic candidate revealed earlier this month that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia, leaving Trump questioning whether she had the stamina to be elected into the oval office. "You have so many different things you have to be able to do and I don't believe Hillary has the stamina," he said. Clinton retorted stating that Trump should not talk about stamina until he has tried out the busy schedule she kept up as secretary of state.

According to a poll on entrepreneur.com comprising of 15080 votes, visitors to the website gave Clinton a landslide victory with voting figures 70 – 30% for Clinton.
