« The Ten Laws of TrumpoDynamics - Fresh Release from the Brilliant Scientists at Trump University | Main | Debate Review: Hillary wins by points, Trump fell towards the end - EXPANDED with analysis & conclusion: Election was won in this debate »

September 26, 2016



It feels like Trump has taken 60-70% of the talking time. The moderation is terrible.


This is interesting. I have never thought of cyber warfare deterrence.

My wife is in shock. She can't believe Donald J. Trump, Political Genius. She doesn't follow politics the way I do, so she is coming at this cold. But man, has Donald made an impression on her, and not a good one.



Your wife is most likely a liberal. I thought Trump is doing surprisingly well. The only mistake I noticed so far is that he blames Clinton for the most ridiculous things. This tactic should undermine the legitimacy of the stuff that is true and which he blames Clinton for.

Trump could not keep his mouth shut when Hillary had the floor.

"Law and Order": (does not apply to me). God Bless America the Beautiful, Home of the Brave, with Liberty and Justice for Some.

Birther: it was settled when the appropriate Hawaii state office said Obama was born in America. Nothing else is of any importance. Trump's carrying on was a declaration that the state government is irrelevant, only his voice matters.

I think Hillary should not have ended with the remarks she made related to stamina, specifically about women's appearance. That should be left to the TV ads.


I agree about Trump overperforming given what everyone expected of him, but I don't think this will help him in the 'presidential look' metric. He blew it losing his temper 2 or 3 times although he was able to control himself for the most part in addition to his ridiculous foreign policy proposals, especially about nuclear weapons.

I think this is the traditional 50/50 debate, the race will not change significantly because of it in my opinion.


Trump, Clinton clash over facts in debate showdown

Millard Filmore

Is anyone here monitoring right wing boards for their reaction, both posts and commenters?



It looks to me that DrudgeReport and Breibart think also that Trump performed no that good for the simple fact that they attack mostly the moderator and not the Hillary.



This is was Breitbart has in its frontpage:

•No Discussion of Clinton Foundation
•No Discussion of Immigration
•No Questions on Private Server
•’Birther Issue’ Takes Center Stage

Hillary Commands Fact Checkers: ‘Get to Work!’

Don't expect any better off the rest of the alt-right trash, they feed each other


Trump refused to shake moderator's hand. He is too important to do that. He can't lower himself to moderator's level.


Obviously, Trump lost the debate but let's see if that translates into loosing votes too.


Yes, every single analyst has declared victory for Clinton. Well, except Rudy Giuliani who declared that Trump "knocked it out of the park" (and out of reality I might add)


Trump was sniffing a lot. Probably the coke was coarse. Rumor is the guy who fixes the power has already been fired.



I am sure that in few hours Trump & DrudgeReport & Breibart & co will come with some internet polls showing that Trump won. So there is no point to bother about those.

So the question is will Trump loose votes too after this debate (because of his "don teflon" property)?


Damn, I meant powder, not power. The power is in the powder.


Drudge has declared Trump the winner of the first debate.
At the moment he has 81.62%.
I think we are doomed. It is going to be Trump by landslide.



DrudgeReport is in the pocket of Trump. DrudgeReport has never posted something negative about Trump. All the internet polls done by DrudgeReport has shown Trump winning. So there is no surprise in there at all. DrudgeReport & Breibart & co internet poles are irrelevant because one is able to predict with 100% accuracy their result.

I am interested in seeing some real voting poles few days after the debate.

Millard Filmore

Trump is getting advice about the remaining debates already. Giuliani thinks fact checking should be off limits to the moderator. It must be those pesky liberal facts.
