The latest Democratic Debate 2016 live stream online and televised event coverage arrives on Thursday night as former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont continue their battle ahead of primary voting in New York City. Tonight’s debate will take place in Brooklyn, New York, with Clinton continuing to maintain a slight double-digit lead over Sanders. The latest 2016 Democratic Debate live streaming and TV coverage will be presented by CNN networks, as they continue their busy week of hosting the various Republican and Democratic candidates on four-straight nights.
According to Fortune in their April 14 report, tonight’s event in Brooklyn will be the first time that Clinton and Sanders have shared the same stage since March 9. They’ll meet again with the New York primary on the way next Tuesday, and Sanders trying to further narrow the gap between he and Clinton. He’s won several important primaries since March 9, which has given him a closer margin, but tonight’s debate could be extra important to capture voters’ attention. As for Hillary Clinton, she had seemed to begin moving her debate attacks towards Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. However, she may need to do more to eliminate her Democratic opponent first.
With the debate taking place in New York, it could see questions and responses focused on Wall Street’s role in government, as well as Hillary’s campaign. It could also mean more of a focus on finance and the economy. Sanders has based much of his campaign on the American economy and could use this event near Wall Street to further that platform. That said, while the Republican debates have featured more attacks taken by candidates towards each other, it would not be surprising if tonight’s Democratic debate turns more personal. Both candidates may be extra desperate to try to win this state’s key primary next week.
So just how close are Sanders and Clinton in the New York polls? A recent New York Democratic Presidential Primary poll via Siena indicates Clinton has a 10-point lead, or 52 to 42 over Sanders as of this past Wednesday. For the Republicans, Trump has a much larger lead, as Siena’s poll indicates he has a 23 point advantage over Kasich and 33 over Cruz in the state. New York will have its primary voting events next Tuesday, with Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania all coming up on April 26. Many believe the Presidential candidate picture could be much clearer by then as to which two candidates will be representing the respective parties.
