Election 2024 Air of Despair

President Joe Biden, right, and Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump, left, are seen on a television at Tillie's Lounge during the presidential debate on Thursday, June 27, 2024, in Cincinnati. For many voters in the U.S., there's despair in the air after the presidential debate.

Business mogul Mark Cuban conducted an interesting experiment during last week鈥檚 debate between President Joe Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump.

He fed a transcript of the debate into ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chatbot, and asked it to rate the two political rivals as if they were applying for a job, based on their 鈥渃ommunication skills, clarity, problem-solving abilities and overall professionalism.鈥
