The Nuclear Option: Trump Was Very Good – And Will Be Even Better

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Monday night’s debate here was a tremendous victory for Donald Trump, but his performance left plenty of room for improvement.

Big picture: Polls show support for Hillary Clinton is collapsing, and she desperately needed to stanch the bleeding. She did nothing during the debate to change the trajectory of those increasingly bleak polls.

    These debates are wind from a monkey’s arse. Trump is still going to beat the old bag.

    Trump has shown that adversity strengthens him and fuels his engine. He will be up for the challenge in the remaining debates.

    I just figured it out. I just figured it out why Trump is going to win this election.

    Go to Trump’s twitter feed and then go to Hillary’s twitter feed. Compare. It’s obvious that Trump does his own tweets, and that Hillary doesn’t.

    Trump put in the worst presidential candidate debate performance of the modern era. Hillary was comparatively professional. That said, Trump still comes out best because he spoke to the people he needs to win – the rust belt. Tellingly, the Republican nominee (who is actually a Democrat) came out of it with the higher “he cares about me” rating than the Democrat nominee (who is actually a robot).

    So, any improvement – for a start, taking a sledgehammer to all that defensive “I am so great” crap – is going to give him the win.
