The polls show that Donald Trump won the debate last night…
Only CNN had Hillary as the winner. Drudge was off the chart with Trump up 81% to Hillary Clinton’s 18%. Fortune more realistic at 51% Trump and 49% Clinton. True had it 58% Trump and 42% Clinton.
Are these polls accurate? How did you see it?
I think Donald Trump started off strong with his trade talk and how the current administration is terrible at foreign trade deals. Hillary came on strong with personal attacks on Trump about not paying workers in his bankrupt deals. By the way that’s a federal law, you can’t pay anyone in a bankruptcy.
Of course the debate moderator went after Trump on his taxes as expected.
Next came the Obama birther issue. All on Trump.
So the Trumpster was on his heels much of the time defending himself, but he did well. However it left him few openings to go after Clinton’s scandals. Trump brought up her missing emails only once, “I’ll show my taxes when you show your missing 31,000 emails.” That hit home but it was brief.
Trump scored well when he said, “Yes, you have 30 years of experience as a political leader but it was all bad experience.”
And Trump did a nice job on the war on terror, but again, only briefly.
Hillary was never shaken and looked calm, even peaceful.
Trump at times looked a bit agitated button his credit, never mean or truly angry.
The close was interesting.
Hillary wanted to leave the stage with a knockout shot so she went to this one: ” You call women pigs, you even said your Miss Universe was fat” and on and on.
Trump DID NOT FIGHT BACK WITH LETS TALK ABOUT YOUR MARRIAGE AND BILL CLINTON.
Instead he said later that he didn’t want to go there with Chelsea Clinton and Hillary’s family in the audience. He said he didn’t think it was needed. Meaning he felt he was already in good shape and able to show some reserve.
Whats the truth? Who won? Continue reading
