Election HQ Will the Kaine-Pence Debate Draw an Unexpectedly Large Audience?
The single vice presidential debate between Gov. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is being held Tuesday evening at Longwood University in southside Virginia.
However, as Bill O'Reilly said Monday evening, some believe it may not be that big of an event, especially compared to the first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
A new poll from ABC News shows 41 percent of Americans cannot name Pence, while 46 percent can't identify Kaine, O'Reilly reported.
"[That] tells me tomorrow night's debate is going to be between 'What's-His-Face' and "Who's-That-Guy", former Bush advisor Karl Rove said on The O'Reilly Factor.
Rove added that, despite the rather lukewarm opinion and awareness of Trump's and Clinton's running mates, "a lot of people are very interested in this election [writ large] and want to hear from these two guys."
He said he expects the discourse at the Farmville forum between the two seasoned legislators to be "well-informed and thoughtful".
"[Kaine and Pence may even seem] better-spoken than their principals at the top of the tickets."
Rove also said he expects Kaine to criticize Trump's recent controversies--like the New York Times report about his 1995 tax return-- while in turn Pence will "largely ignore Kaine, except to lump [him and Clinton] together over ObamaCare."
The audience might start to think "why aren't these guys at the top of the ticket," Rove said.
