Debate-watchers say their minds are made up

Watch parties for final debate

MINNEAPOLIS – Dozens of people packed the Nomad World Pub Wednesday night to watch the third and final presidential debate. The watch party was sponsored by Minnesota Public Radio.

People KARE 11 spoke to felt it was a relatively substantive debate. Some of the issues they were hoping the candidates would discuss were their opinions on the Supreme Court and how to tackle climate change.

But many people, if not all of them seemed to have their minds made up no matter what was discussed. 

“The vast majority, 95 percent of people have made up their mind,” said Tom Menke about the country.

And that seemed to be the case in the pub, as well. Despite that, debate-watchers were still very interested to see how Secretary Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump handled the questions.

Nadine Dale and Emily Bryant were surprised to see some polls show voters are still undecided.

“I think a lot of people have made up their minds. I think by the third debate hopefully they've decided,” said Dale.
 
“I think it would be hard to get people to vote for Trump or Clinton at this point. And if you're not sold on one of them you most certainly would vote for one of the independents Johnson or Stein,” added Bryant.
