presidential debate: a foggy forecast
The big winner are the vendors providing the coffee and snacks for the meetings underway at the networks, newspapers, campaign leadership and the debate commission offices or zoom meetings.
There's a lot of thrashing to do before another debate goes up. Once again American cultural norms have been savaged by the spurious mongrel called Trump.Photo by Doug Mills New York Times
- Biden did not hurt himself. Trump did not help himself.
- Republicans have tried to distance themselves, a signal Trump pooped on his efforts to get swing voters. One of Frank Luntz's focus group, Ruthie from PA said she was undecided going into the debate, but will vote for Biden becasue Trump behaved like a "crackhead."
- Biden answered any questions about his agility. He was able to hold focus and communicate with voters despite having Trump yammering away. Biden can handle any crisis or critical decision to be made in the Oval Office and there will be no bully clown in the room.
- There was a significant tune out as the melee continued meaning a lot of people are fed up with Trump and his fouling of America.
