NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Shortly after the final presidential debate at Belmont University NewsChannel 5's Vicki Yates spoke with Middle Tennessee voters to get their thoughts on the candidates' performance and policies.

The event was held in the Votes for Women room at the Nashville Public Library and featured a wide range of voters with different backgrounds and beliefs.

After watching the debate together, the participants all agreed this debate was much easier to watch than the first debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Watch the full discussion with Middle Tennessee voters below:

This afternoon, one of our voters stopped by the news station for a quick chat before the debate.

"You know, I think President Trump was not feeling well in the first debate and I'd like to see if he can handle himself better this time," she explained. "But I'd like to see Biden maybe be a little stronger and healthier looking than he did last time -- he didn't look that good either."

However, many voters have already made up their minds. More than 1 million Tennesseans have already voted early either by mail or in person.
