Clinton Probably Finished Off Trump Last Night
 
Quote:

I’m not sure I need to tell you this, but Hillary Clinton is probably going to be the next president. It’s just a question of what “probably” means.
Quote:

Clinton went into the final presidential debate on Wednesday with a lead of about 7 percentage points over Donald Trump. And according to the only two scientific polls we’ve seen, voters thought that Clinton won the debate. Occasionally, the initial reaction to a debate can differ from the way it’s perceived days later. But in this case, the morning headlines, which focused overwhelmingly on Trump’s refusal to say whether he’ll accept the election results, are potentially worse for Trump than the debate itself. In YouGov’s poll of debate watchers, 68 percent of voters said they think the candidates should pledge to accept the results of the election.
Quote:

There are less than three weeks left in the campaign, and there are no more guaranteed opportunities for Trump or Clinton to command a huge public audience, as they do at the conventions and the debates (although, they’ll get plenty of attention, of course). Millions of people have already voted. Trump has had a significant advertising deficit, and an even more significant deficit in terms of his turnout operation. He’ll probably spend a significant chunk of the remaining news cycles quarreling over his contention that the election is rigged, and with the numerous women who have accused him of sexual assault. He doesn’t have an obvious — or even a not-so-obvious — path to the presidency.
Quote:

So we’re left to argue about the probability of an unforeseen event, or a significant polling error. It’s perhaps significant that almost no matter what news has occurred, and there’s been a lot of it — terrorist attacks, mass shootings, foreign crises, her email scandal, the Wikileaks dump, her Sept. 11 health scare — Clinton has almost always led Trump in the polls, although there have certainly been times when the election was close. What if her State Department emails are sitting on one of Julian Assange’s servers? That would be interesting, I suppose. But there are also October (or November) surprises that could work against Trump: more accusations from women, more damaging videotapes, further leaking of his tax records...

I think Hillary and Donald finished off Donald last night. She destroyed him on his record on business and character, and he punched himself in the face with the dozens of interruptions, "such a nasty woman", and refusing to say he'll accept the election results if he loses.

This thread belongs in the Jokes section. Or, is there an Insanity section here?

For some people, I suspect Donald could have failed to show up and they would have claimed Donald won... :rolls

For the second debate, Trump tweeted: "Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!"

But of course, that claim that every poll said that was egregiously wrong. :rolls

To begin with, he didn't tell the world our response time in the event of a nuclear attack.

As for temperament, Hillary went ballistic at the Matt Laur Commander and chief Forum because he had the nerve to ask a question for which she hadn't been told about before hand.

Debate three she had five days to prepare for anything. Wallace gave her everything and Trump got under her skin.

BTW, Trump is still standing today. Keep in mind his so called rage reflects that of many, many frustrated Americans who have yet to be heard. They have kept quiet and reserved but fuming.

Only 21 days to go.

yes the first point was explained weeks ago but some have gone over it recently. that is this. the pentagon and/or intelligence agencies are well aware of what goes out on the news about the military. it may very well be they were using strategy here as isis members will be much easier to pick off on the roads away from Mosul. other than that they can dig in to bunkers where they will be when we finish them also civilians have been alerted for weeks if they wanted to try to leave or fight...

For your other point I will refer you to the OP this discussion is about also telling you a wider audience was watching last night.

I don't understand the Paul Ryan "importance". Trump definitely does not need any RINO bootlickers on his side.
