Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders met on Thursday night in Brooklyn for what is likely their final debate of the 2016 election cycle. The CNN-hosted debate, the ninth featuring the two politicians, was more confrontational than earlier encounters. Clinton sought to highlight Sanders’ stances and votes against some gun control legislation, and portrayed the Vermont senator as running a pie-in-the-sky campaign that’s big on rhetoric and promises, but falls short on actionable details. Sanders repeatedly criticized Clinton’s lack of disclosure on speeches she gave to Wall Street firms and large corporations, the amount of money she and her campaign have accepted from big donors, and her support of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
The crowd was raucous, cheering, booing, and chanting throughout the debate — but who delivered the stronger performance? And does it even matter at this point in the cycle? It’s your call; vote in the poll below.
