2016 US elections

Editor's note: The first of three presidential debates for the 2016 election begins shortly, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump taking the stage at Hofstra University in Long Island, N.Y. NBC News' Lester Holt will moderate the match, selecting questions that focus on the future of America and its security. The two candidates reportedly have undertaken radically different preparation methods: Clinton, who, according to CNN, has participated in more debates than any presidential candidate in recent history, has spent most of the past week off the campaign trail and huddling with aides, who tell NBC News they are preparing for the night to go in several directions; Trump, on the other hand, has opted to crowd-source his strategy by sending a survey to supporters. More than half of Americans believe Clinton will outperform Trump, according to a recent CNN/ORC poll. Coverage kicks off at 9 p.m. ET, and we'll have live video and highlights on our feed. - Rebecca
