On “Political Rewind,” we prepare for the much-anticipated presidential debate on Monday. We discuss how candidates are preparing and what they hope to achieve in the first debate. Can Hillary Clinton steer away from policy and use this time to relate to viewers? Will Donald Trump play the role of disrupter or will he present himself as presidential?

 

We talk about the latest polls in Georgia and who has the momentum. How will fundraising and campaign organization influence the Peach State in the final weeks of this election?

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has commented on the depiction of minority communities and the shape they are currently in. Are black communities in worse shape today than ever before?

Policing in this country has become a defining topic in the election. Our panel will reflect on the shooting incidents in Tulsa and Charlotte. How did candidates respond and how does this affect voters’ views of Trump and Clinton?

 

Panelists:

Jim Galloway – AJC Political Writer

Julianne Thompson – Republican Strategist

Rebecca DeHart  – Executive Director of the Georgia Democratic Party
