You say that like it's a bad thing. Whenever I give a presentation I always have notes. Not only does it look professional and indicates I prepared, it lends a sense of gravitas to the event. Off the cuff speaking without preparation looks like ... well like Trump did last night.

RE: The debate
Well, looking from outside, but still with interest since this a bit of a global matter, I would trust neither if them (but I never trust politicians anyway - nothing new there) .

But, on points scored for accuracy, presentation, use of English (is it Trump's second language?, he is worse than Dubya) the lady is the winner for me.

Honesty? Only time will tell!

The blinders serve a dual purpose, keeps them from seeing much of what is going on around them with the bonus of having a cleaver to cut their nose off to spite their face.



This is funny to me in a perverted kind of way because if Trump wins and he implements his tax plans I pay less taxes. But since I actually care about the country I’d prefer to see Clinton win.

RE: The debate
Interesting to note that Trump admitted to paying no income tax (because it's "smart" and "it would be squandered" if he did).

It was painful to listen to.

After this, I'm swaying towards Trump.

Once, in Britland, they cut the funding of a much needed kids' charity by millions. Justification was they needed to cut Income tax.

I worked it out, they saved me the price of a small bar of chocolate each month. I would rather have had the charity than the chocolate.

I don't know what polls you're looking at, but a quick internet search on who won the debate brought up a list of links: A few link titles said Clinton won. Most didn't say. None said Trump won.

This article mentions 4 different polls, all saying Clinton won:

Personally, I don't think the debate will have much impact on voting. Trump failed miserably IMO because he had far more factual errors and far less substance. He was incoherent and difficult to follow. Several times he even indirectly admitted Clinton was right when she called him out about something (not paying taxes, for example - not renting to black people, for another).

But, unfortunately, too many people in the general population don't know the facts either. Like when Trump said we don't have to defend Japan, but actually by treaty we do (Japan-U.S. Security Treaty). Clinton mentioned this later, but I don't know if a lot of people would have noticed. I think most people were looking to see that the person they were already leaning toward at least did ok and most people are going to think they did.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

RE: The debate
I love internet polls, especially ones that don't require a log in.

I also do my very best to skew the results, because I can.
