Sheard: Trump Presidency Would Cause Trade Concern
13:37 - The first presidential debate of 2016 saw both candidates go on attack from the start, with gentility giving way to hostility within moments before what could be the largest TV audience for a debate ever. In a Bloomberg Politics national poll released Monday, each drew 46 percent of likely voters in a head-to-head contest, while Republican Trump gets 43 percent to Democrat Clinton’s 41 percent when third-party candidates are included. Both candidates are battling negative perceptions that have depressed voter enthusiasm, even as the tumultuous campaign draws intense interest. S&P Chief Global Economist Paul Sheard discusses implications with Bloomberg's Anna Edwards on "Countdown." (Corrects headline to remove the word "panic.")
