With less than two weeks before Election Day, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden held their final debate at Belmont University in Nashville.

Polls show Georgians are evenly split, but Democratic Party leaders are fueling a last-minute push in hopes Biden can swing Georgia Blue.

So how effective was the debate in wooing undecided Georgia swing voters?

To find out, WABE’s Jim Burress checked back in with University of North Georgia communications professor Tom Preston.

And while the matchup was far more civil than the first debate, Preston said both candidates missed some opportunities — particularity when it came to NBC debate moderator Kristen Welker’s question about race in America and the candidates’ support, or lack thereof, of Black Lives Matter.
