Blog Author's Comments -- There’s a ton of opinions on the results of the presidential debate last night. The last thing needed is another one. But, the only opinion that matters is yours.
Before last night’s debate my own opinion was that almost no-one is truly undecided in this election.
Yes, there might be a small number of people who are looking for an excuse to vote one way or the other. But as a general disposition everyone who will vote on November 8th already knew their candidate before the stage show last evening.
The moderator Lester Holt was clearly helping Hillary as much as he could. NBC moderator Holt interrupted Trump a record 41 times, either to “fact-check” the Republican nominee, or to ask a follow-up question. Clinton was only interrupted 7 times during the course of the 90-minute debate.
Holt interrupted Trump the most during a particularly heated exchange about Trump’s stance on the Iraq war. Holt challenged Trump in particular, cutting him off several times to assert the business mogul did indeed support the war in Iraq when it was popular. Lester Holt accused Donald Trump of supporting the Iraq War back in 2003. Trump brought up his interview with Neil Cavuto in his defense.
I was not surprised that Donald Trump had to debate both Lester Holt and scandal-plagued Democrat Hillary Clinton. But, anyone who is tuned in to the political scene expected this. I do not want a 'crooked' career politician Hillary Clinton as our next president. I would think that viewers noticed that Lester Holt did not ask questions about Hillary's emails, Benghazi or the Clinton Foundation.
But, since he entered the campaign Donald Trump has been a breath of fresh air to me and millions more voters. Clinton has too much baggage for anyone to seriously consider voting for her. She is a criminal and for her to be the president would certainly be a crime.
If one believes in the polls Trump has done very well, and the Democrats, especially Clinton and Obama, cannot believe what they are seeing and hearing. As a result I think they are plotting many ways to manipulate the election in November, in Clinton's favor. I believe and hope that there are so many people who plan to vote for Donald Trump that this will overcome whatever the Clinton's and the Democrats attempt to do.
Liberal media hacks like to push their own narrative on Donald Trump’s position on so many issues which are of interest to so many people. They have and will continue to beat on him for everything he says or does. But, the people who plan to vote for Trump far out weigh all the effort the liberal/progressive so-called journalists say and do.
