Everything yesterday and all day today will be about the debates so we can add nothing but our opinion here.
Hillary has to be prepared after all the time she took off to prepare.
Donald followed a different path, he stayed on the trail.
I expect Hillary’s command of facts to be clear.
Trump fans have to hope he knows enough to stand up for 90 minutes.
============== The Debate In A Nutshell ================
Hillary’s objective, make Trump look out classed and in no way can anyone want to wake up November 9th and realize he is President.
Trump’s objective is to appear rationale and knowledgable enough that he can be President.
================== One Poll Finding ===================
From the AP/GSK poll. What Trump faces and what his opportunity is:
Majority of Americans fear Trump presidency
More than half the country fears a Trump presidency. And only about a third of Americans believe he is at least somewhat qualified to serve in the White House.
In the final sprint to Election Day, a new Associated Press-GfK poll underscores those daunting roadblocks for Donald Trump as he tries to overtake Hillary Clinton.
Moreover, most voters oppose the hard-line approach to immigration that is a centerpiece of the billionaire businessman’s campaign. They are more likely to trust Clinton to handle a variety of issues facing the country, and Trump has no advantage on the national security topics also at the forefront of his bid.
Trump undoubtedly has a passionate base of support, seen clearly among the thousands of backers who fill the stands at his rallies. But most people don’t share that fervor. Only 29 percent of registered voters would be excited and just 24 percent would be proud should Trump prevail in November.
Only one in four voters find him even somewhat civil or compassionate, and just a third say he’s not at all racist.
================ The News Today ======================
The NYTimes, the newspaper that “prints all the news fit to print” endorsed Hillary yesterday. Why is that news? They have endorsed every Democrat since 1960. Who was surprised?
They had a Trump story too. “A Week of Whoppers From Donald Trump”.
Yea, Fair and Balanced.
Washington Post poll yesterday looks about right to me.
Clinton 46, Trump 44, Johnson 5 and Stein 1.
Keys are third parties settling in lower area. Trump can’t crack that 45% number and Hillary can’t reach 50%.
Good news in the poll most people expect Hillary will win the debate. Expectations are very important and the more expecting her to win the better.
Here’s a story on the AP poll. American’s don’t like or trust either. The positive for Trump is a steady controlled debate can help him. If he looks Presidential he will exceed the expectation game. I think her long time on stage makes it difficult for her to change images. Can he do it?
Want to read an article that will drive you mad? Check this out about Cheryl Mills, Hillary’s friend and lawyer, who was given immunity in the email case. It turns out she and Director Comey had interactions in past cases. In fact “he complained about her lack of cooperation while probing Clinton scandals in the 1990s”. Notice this additional quote in the article. “This time the House subpoenaed information from Mills, who not only withheld the documents but, a government committee said, “lied under oath” — prompting staff lawyers to send a criminal referral to the Justice Department demanding prosecutors charge Mills with obstruction of justice and perjury.” Some things never change and Hillary runs for President.
Speaking if shady and questionable. President Obama said he learned of Hillary’s private server from the news media (as he learned so many other things if you recall). Really? Remember those emails released late Friday night? Here’s news from them. “President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday. The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state”.
Happy debate watching. Got a prediction.
With two deaths yesterday we mourn the great Arnold Palmer and all he accomplished and represented. Jose Fernandez offered so much to baseball and he was destined to greatness. Without bringing politics into this a Florida Congressional candidate wrote this and the MSM is all over him. Considering that Jose tried three times to escape from Cuba and was in prison for a year what do you think? He said, “To all who will kneel during the anthem today — just remember how Jose Fernandez risked his life just for the chance to stand for it.”
