CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Round one of the Presidential Debates is now history, and it was a record-setting performance.

More than 84 million television viewers tuned in, making it the most-watched debate in American history.

Who won? It depends on your political persuasion. Democrats say Hillary Clinton, of course. Republicans say Donald Trump came out on top.  

But the real question is after the 90-minute debate, did we come away knowing more than we did before it started? From my chair, not very much.  

There were some good moments, but for the most part, it was much more about style over substance. The political analysts are talking more about who got in the sharpest jab instead of who talked more about the real issues.

Right now, most polls show Clinton and Trump in a virtual tie.  

There are two more Presidential Debates. Less than six weeks before the election.  

Will someone please step up and talk about the issues?
