Well, that's to be expected.

RE: The debate
What I took away is that she is fully aware of his malignant narcissism. She kept baiting him - successfully getting him to get paranoid and defend himself - but not strongly enough for him to unravel.

I hope she succeeds next time, people will then see who he really is. If she pushes the correct button he will implode, and it sure looks like her advisors are fully aware. Just got to find the precise button....

One way or another, he is going to really, really hate her before this is over... Drinking Beverage

How many on this list are out of a job this morning? Because it couldn't possibly have been Trump's fault that it went badly for him. Oh no, especially when the microphone wasn't working either. Laugh out loadLaugh out loadLaugh out load

I think he said the right things, oddly enough. He's stoked fear of Mexicans and Chinese and Muslims, he's spread distrust of Hillary. Saying things like "Oh, typical politician" implies that somehow he knows what workers need and want and she's out of touch with reality. It's important not to underestimate his knowledge of how to push buttons with his support base. They probably do genuinely believe that he was picked on, that it was an unfair debate and that she's going to steal the election. His lack of preparation and answers, we have seen in this very thread, diehard supporters find a way to spin that as positive.

The problem with this analysis is he doesn't need to speak to his supporters, he needs to speak to the undecideds, and he did, except what he said turned them off. He won over zero people who were middle of the road. He doesn't have enough of a base to win the election, he needs those suburban housewives, and he did nothing to cozy up to them, in fact he probably made a lot of them turn off the TV.
