Today’s 3rd and final Presidential Debate at UNLV was in our opinion the most effective debate because after two previous debates, we’re fatigued, excited, curious, wary, and omg is this the last exam???

But that’s because Trump couldn’t recover from his own behavior before, between and after his first two debates. Regardless of how many of us hate to cringe around the issues behind the “30,000” emails, Trump loses his point with everyone outside of his bitter mob mentality constituency. How safe are minority voters in small towns when it’s time to vote when he claims the election is rigged?

Bruce Springsteen has never strayed from his working class origins, and we appreciate Channel 4 capturing this interview moment about why Trump will lose.

What’s happened tonight is this, Trump kept his base of supporters energized, excited and riled up. What Hillary Clinton accomplished tonight is this – she, I believe, earned the willingness and belief of more Undecided/Indepndent and even a few more Republican Party voters to her side. I saw Hillary Clinton at her most personable in this 3rd debate. She was solid in her answers because she was in her element, showing her 30 years of experience in public office. And seriously, if Trump was truly an advocate for his base of disenchanted voters, is he really an effective leader when he’s encouraging an angry mob mentality? Distraction from issues, “scare rhetoric”, does not solve the problems in this country and will create a disservice to the United States in international diplomacy. Trump does not know diplomacy. Again he showed a lack of true leadership to prove he can lead this entire country in a productive and effecive direction.

So, Trump won by keeping his base energized. Hillary won by adding to her base. However the polls are calculated by who and where,  I’ll say this, her numbers have to at least go to a double digit lead. Which means from the average of polls I’ve seen of 8/9%, she lands in a 10/11% lead. This is as good as me predicting lottery numbers, but hell, weren’t we all predicting frequency of his favorite words/ sniffs in this debate? Standing out, his refusal to state his individual stand regarding Roe vs Wade, deflecting to  whatever the Supreme Court decides (and he has a list of 20 that he’s considering as nominees) and his refusal to answer the simple question presented by Chris Wallace, would he accept the vote of the nation after Election Day. Simply put, Trump is the Biggest Loser before the fight is over.

What’s Hillary up to after the debate? Have a look here. She’s shook the hands of the audience while Trump left the debate. She’s meeting more people afterwards. This woman has stamina.
