    I did watch the debate. It was amazing to me that Hillary held her composure for 97% of the time.
    There were missed opportunities by both candidates.

    The Trump sniffles were a distraction to me....definitely dry, so antihistamines were involved. I was looking for a coughing fit by Hilary.

    I think it was pretty much of a draw.........I already know who I'm voting for and this changed nothing.

    Sniffles are a symptom of cocaine abuse. All of you web MD's out there should be aware of that.

    from a non-drinking, non-drug user? I've had sniffles in the past and I never used an illegal drug.

    And so does everybody. These "debates" are a waste of everyone's time.

    Michael Moore Says Trump ‘Won’ The Debate

    Michael Moore appeared frustrated on Twitter following the presidential debate, saying Donald Trump “won” and “we all lost.”
    The 62-year-old filmmaker warned “pro-Hillary gloaters” against celebrating over how Hillary Clinton did in the debate against the Republican nominee and insisted nothing she did changed things.

    whats the matter morelock, you had to start a separate thread on the same subject to avoid the obvious outcome of the debate?

    It would seem to me that Hillary would have to beat Trump really badly to have any effect.
    No one expects Trump to do well and everyone has been listening to Hilary give speeches for 30 years ... she should be good at debates.
    These two are such well known commodities, I don't see the debates changing peoples votes much ... either way.

    No merging ... the other thread title dissuades open honest discussion.

    agreed these debates are queen of marksbury rules versus street fighter. each can be successful fighting their way and still not change the overall vote by much.

    Someone on Morning Joe suggested it might have some effect on Gary Johnson voters. When it becomes obvious that Johnson is going nowhere (not even Allepo now that he knows where it is) they will find Clinton somewhat more acceptable through the debates. That is something to consider. On election day, Johnson isn't going to pull 9%.

  11. I listened to it too. Lots of mud slinging, no facts.

    This Allepo crap again lol.
    You think the majority of people who are going to vote for Clinton or Trump know anything about Allepo? Johnson isn't going to get 9%, because on election day, millions of people are going to go into a booth and choose the (R) or the (D). It has nothing to do with him, or clinton, or trump.

    No. I don't think they do. I do think a candidate for president should though. i can't imagine Ross Perot being that out of touch when he ran.

    So on election day these R's and D's will arrive home. So what kind of fantasy are they living today?

    Mudslinging? I thought he just gave his prediction/opinion.

    When you say fantasy, are you talking about third party voters?
  16. I really didn't hear anything for either candidate ...just blah blah blah.

    well if you concede that they are eventually just going with an R or D anyway...yes.

    What do you think @Jones

    I don't think many will change their vote preference, I think the polling is flawed/not designed for 3 or 4 choices.

    I also don't think third party voters have any fantasy about winning. It's more about actually having a say in the politics of your country, libertarians have had a huge influence on the GOP in the last decade. If I wanted to be on the winning side I'd just vote for Clinton. I hope this election is a wake up call for the neocons but I doubt it will be.
