All eyes on the debate

nc_debate120926_1500x845(NBC News) — As many as 100 million people are expected to watch tonight’s presidential debate, the largest audience ever.

Hillary Clinton’s team is pushing for real-time fact checking.

“What we don’t want to have is some sort of double standard where Donald Trump can get the most improved award, but Hillary Clinton is getting judged on the fine points of policy,” says Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook.

It’s Trump’s first one-on-one debate.

His challenge will be to go in-depth on key issues like immigration, jobs and foreign policy.  His campaign promises he won’t come out swinging – but will defend himself, and may reveal his strategy to defeat ISIS.

“You will get his view of how to best defeat the enemy without telling ISIS particularly what specifically what it’s going to be,” says campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.
