I started a similar petition, but this one has gathered many more signatures, so I'm sharing my support for this common (sense) goal!

I totally agree, The 2020 US Debate was so hard to watch. It looked more like two people arguing rather then a Presidential Debate, the candidates (particularly Biden) could not speak without being interrupted.
Even when their supposed to have "Uninterrupted Speaking", they still get interrupted with phrases like "wrong" or "that's not true'
Cutting their mic when it's not their turn to speak will benefit US Debates and help us understand them better.

I started a similar petition and then found about 20 more. This one seems to be doing the best, so I am going to redirect my few signers here.

The purpose of presidential debates is to allow the American people to understand the position of each candidate on critically important issues facing the public. Constant interruptions serve no one, especially voters who tune in to hear the candidates' positions. Since it is clear that some candidates are unwilling to let others speak, muting microphones is imperative. This is about informing the people, not providing a verbal free for all.

Yes. Each candidate should have the opportunity of speaking without interruption or heckling by the other...

Give the moderator the authority to silence the microphone when it is not their turn to speak.

This recent "performance" from Mr. Trump was an embarrassment to our "used to be great" country and a horrible example to our children!

Please bring back civilized debates and the only way is gonna be to turn off trumps microphone and maybe put him in a sound proof booth!

It is important to turn off each candidate’s mike while the other is speaking. That way trump can’t say “ that’s not fair” . It’s sad that trump’s childish behavior brought us to this point
