The third and final presidential debate is over. Dr. Eric Morris, Missouri State University debate coach and communications professor, offered his views on last night’s event.
"As a presidential debate scholar I'll say that tonight probably did not have a significant impact on the election. The effect that debates have on the election tends to be very short-term. It is like any number of things that can happen in a campaign. It creates some impressions, some significant moments, but often the give and take of the next few days will cancel out that sort of an effect," he said.
