US presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are about to meet for the second presidential debate.

It comes after the revelation of Trump’s lewd comments about women, which some commentators believe has shaken his campaign to its core.

Evan Siegfried, a Republican strategist and commentator, suggests the unguarded comments are so devastating that it is next to impossible for Trump to recover from them.

As the Republican party reels in the aftermath of the leak, Trump will need to demonstrate he remains a credible candidate in the next debate.

The candidates will be fielding questions from both the moderators and audience members, as well as home viewer questions.

With less than a month to go until election day, and in light of the recent event, it is expected to be fiery.
