President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden sparred Tuesday in their first of three debates, hoping to sway undecided voters planning to cast ballots by mail and in person in the final weeks leading up to the Nov. 3 election.

Who do you think lost the first presidential debate?

We're following this poll throughout the day and into tomorrow. Tune in to News5 at 4 p.m. as we review the results.

Debate moderator Chris Wallace struggled to keep control of the debate, frequently trying to keep President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden from interrupting each other.

While Wallace at several points told Biden to allow Trump to speak, Wallace frequently told the president to stop interrupting, and at one point reminded Trump of the debate rules.

The next time the president and former vice president will face off will be on Oct. 15 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.

The debate will be a town meeting-style event, moderated by Steve Scully, Senior Executive Producer and Political Editor at C-SPAN.

The debate’s questions will be posed by citizens of the South Florida area. The candidates will have two minutes to respond to each question and there will be an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate further discussion.

The town meeting participants will be uncommitted voters selected under the supervision of Dr. Frank Newport, Senior Scientist at Gallup.
