Hillary Clinton is determined to get under Donald Trump's skin when they meet on Sept. 26. The first presidential debate will be broadcasted live on the majority of television networks and cable channels. Viewers can watch online via live stream channel for free.  

The Monday's debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York will start at 9 p.m. ET and will last for 90 minutes. The event will be broadcasted live on all major television networks -- ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. In addition, it will air on several cable channels including CNN, FOX News and MSNBC.

On the internet, the first presidential debate will be live-streamed on YouTube and Twitter.

The New York Times reported the first face-off of Clinton and Trump will be one of the most widely watched presidential debates since Carter vs. Reagan in 1980. Some commentators estimated the televised match-up will draw a Super Bowl-sized TV audience.

NBC anchor Lester Holt is the moderator of the first presidential debate. Recently, he revealed the debate's topic are "America's Direction," "Achieving Prosperity," and "Securing America." He added each topic has two 15-minute segments.

The upcoming debate is a major opportunity for presidential hopefuls to appeal to American voters who have yet to commit to a candidate. The event also comes after a mostly negative presidential race where Clinton and Trump have tried to label each other as dangerous for the United States.

In the latest Reuters/Ipsos national tracking poll, Clinton leads Trump by 4 points. The survey released on Friday was conducted from Sept. 16 to Sept. 22. It shows that 41 percent of likely voters supported Clinton, while 37 percent backed Trump.

In a separate four-way survey that included Johnson, Stein and Trump. Among likely voters, 39 percent endorsed Clinton, 37 percent picked Trump, 7 percent backed Johnson and 2 percent favored Stein.

The recent Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii. Its 1,559 participants are considered to be likely voters according to their registration status, voting history and stated intention to participate in the election.

Interestingly, there is still 22 percent of likely voters that do not support any candidate. That figure is more than twice the proportion of uncommitted voters during Obama vs. Romney presidential race in 2012. On Sept. 26, they might find their candidate.
