The latest of the 11 scheduled Republican primary debates is scheduled for Wednesday (Oct. 28), hosted by CNBC and held at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado The first two Republican debates have produced great theatre and memorable moments from a wide variety of personalities like billionaire businessman Donald Trump, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
The debates also have produced their share of verbal barbs, but also a good deal of nonverbal expressions from most every candidate, Trump in particular.
Erik Bucy, a professor in the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech University, has done extensive studies on non-verbal expressions in presidential debates and is available by phone to comment on not only the upcoming debate but future debates as well.
