Sunday night’s Democratic presidential debate should be the most closely-watched meeting of the party’s candidates this year. But the Democratic National Committee’s schedule, may not bring in viewers.
It's a three-day weekend, and at the same time the debate airs so will National Football League playoff games and a new episode of PBS’s popular series, “Downton Abbey.”
This week, new polls showed former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton and US Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont statistically tied in Iowa. This means that the next Democratic debate will be the most important, yet.
It's also, the last debate before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary.
