Many analysts predict that Monday's night debate could be the defining moment of the presidential election, bringing together for the first time the wildly divergent styles of veteran politician Hillary Clinton and maverick campaigner Donald Trump. Heading into the debate, a Bloomberg Poll has the candidates each receiving 46 percent in a head-to-head competition and Trump edging out Clinton 43 to 41 percent when third-party candidates are included. We'll check in with political commentators about who performed well and who fell flat during the highly anticipated match up.
