But someone else benefited from the new tone of voice.

  • On the night of Friday (October 23), Donald Trump and Joe Biden met for the last TV duel before the 2020 US election *.

  • The round was surprisingly civilized.

  • Initial surveys show a clear winner - but it also seems that Donald Trump has benefited at least a little from the change of course.

Nashville / Washington

- The second and last US presidential debate was unexpectedly civilized - apart from a Hitler comparison.

Possibly a consequence of the possibility to

mute the candidates

, as the

New York Times


But possibly also a conscious strategic decision by the election campaign teams.

But who was the benefit of the round?

According to the


quick polls by

American media:

Joe Biden


The transmitter


declared 53 percent of respondents, the challenger from the ranks of the Democrats was for her the

winner of the TV duel

Donald Trump *

in this role.

had determined even worse values ​​for Trump.

In the broadcaster's poll at the time, only 28 percent of those questioned


for the

incumbent US president

and 67 percent rated his allegations as "unfair".

Amazingly, Trump seems to have benefited from deviating from his usual rhetoric - even if,

according to the measurements of the polls, it is not enough to win


At the same time, the broadcaster determined that

the comparatively tame group had a


small impact

on the

preferences of the voters


When asked how positive or negative Trump and Biden are seen, according to the report, very little happened: 56 percent of those surveyed gave Biden a positive rating after the debate, Trump 41 percent.

With that, Biden gained exactly one percentage point and Trump lost one.


585 respondents by telephone

, the database of the survey was rather small.

In the USA, voting will take place on November 3rd *.

Polls recently showed a lead for Biden - but also a slight catch-up by Donald Trump.
