Hillary's up to 71.8% now. I just wanted to pat myself on the back

But I was kind of wrong, too....I thought the debate would help Hillary mainly because when people see her on TV they are reminded that she's an actual person and not a demon. And she's competent, and at least says the things that liberals want to hear (even if she doesn't follow through on all of them). I thought Trump would say some outragous things but didn't expect those to hurt him, like so many things haven't hurt him. But I think his behavior and stuff he said went far beyond what I (and most people) were expecting. Also, dwelling on Miss Universe '96 for 5 days after the debate was a really bad idea.

It'll be interesting to see at least. Clinton, unlike the GOP primary candidates, has to take Trump seriously and only focus on his debate style. I think if she sticks to policy while he lacks any clear direction or details on his, she'll fend off Trump.


I disagree. I think Trump's personality plays well for TV debates. If he stays disciplined and doesn't say something completely offensive, I think he'll be perceived as the winner, even if half of what he says is judged "pants on fire."


Trump's soundbites are great for TV but seriously go and watch the entirety one of his speeches, unfiltered. He just spews whatever random thing comes into his head. He will look dumb a number of times. Will it matter? I think it is possible that his various gaffes may actually matter to undecided voters who have never seen him speak live.
