I promised my Politics Done Right audience I would have a post debate show. We air daily at 3:00 PM Central. Check us out.
Post Debate Rap Up
The first debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was a disaster for America. Donald Trump illustrated how corrosive a character he is. He continues to be a clear and present danger to America.
The Daily Kos said it best.
So what does Donald Trump do in the debate?
He lied, displaying his racism like calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” and refusing to refute white supremacism, he bullied and interrupted and ranted and raved.
It’s easy to get caught up with the distressing substance of this debate. But the debate isn’t a standalone contest. It serves a broader purpose—to help inform the voting decisions of the American electorate.
So ask yourself, whose mind was changed by this? Obviously no liberal or conservative voter did. The other side was parading around on Twitter puffing up their chest bragging about their guy being “the alpha,” as if that has any salience in voting beyond the conservative deplorable base. We liberals saw Trump confirm every horrible thing we thought about him.
But what about those swing suburban college-educated white woman? Were any of them swayed by what they saw tonight?
Of course not!
And for Trump, that is devastating. He is losing, down by nearly double-digits nationally, and by solid deficits in the key battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. He needs to change the equation. He needs to win back support that he lost.
And he didn’t even try.
