Will we have as many Clinton/Trump debates as there were Obama/Romney debates? [View all]

Here's some interesting historical info that I found regarding the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and the 2012 debates.

POLL QUESTION: How many debates are Clinton and Trump likely to have? (In 2012 there were three presidential debates and 1 vice-presidential debate.)

Incomplete: Fewer than previously. (Trump has a tantrum and refuses to show up.)

No debates, no agreement reached. (Candidates fight it out in the media and in separate town-hall events.)
