Some Biden supporters were apparently hoping for CNN fact checker Daniel Dale, either seriously or in jest.

Chris Wallace received a mix reaction. Wallace moderated the final Trump Hillary debate and was praised by most at the time.

Several Biden supporters expressed concern over “fact checkers.”

A lot of Trump supporters still question whether Biden will actually attend.

Some Trump supporters felt the moderators were stacked with those against him.
