NORFOLK, Va. – After President Donald Trump announced Friday he has tested positive for COVID-19, there is the question of what happens with the next presidential debate, which is scheduled for October 15.
So, there remain a lot of unsettled things as early voting continues and undecided voters look to make up their minds.
News 3 anchor Kurt Williams talks it over with our “Think Tank,” political analyst team, Old Dominion University Political Analyst Dr. Jesse Richman and Dr. Eric Claville of Norfolk State University.
“Does this positive test dramatically affect who people were going to vote for? I think one of the things to keep in mind as the news cycle spins so rapidly, nonetheless many, many, many people have already made up their mind, and for most of the people this will not affect it,” Richman said.
Claville added, “But for right now, I think the election is set. I think the voters who were going to vote are going to vote the way they're voting.”
After experiencing mild symptoms, Trump is currently seeking treatment at Walter Reed Hospital, where he will be working from the facility's presidential suites. The Trump campaign has postponed all upcoming events featuring the president.
