The liberal moderators in the second Presidential Debate (who are Clinton backers) attacked Donald Trump and even joined the debate to counter him at times. They left Clinton alone. Despite this apparent bias against Trump, reputable online surveys had Donald Trump as the big winner.
News reports stated, “The Drudge Report online vote had 80 percent of respondents giving the victory to Trump, and a Time.com survey had the Republican nominee leading Clinton by four percentage points – 52 percent to 48 percent – after more than 1,300,000 votes were cast. CNBC and Breitbart votes also had Trump winning the event, at New York’s Hofstra University. A Fox News online vote had Trump winning with 50 percent of respondents, Clinton at 35 percent and the other 15 .percent declaring no one won.”
Even the pro-Hillary Clinton New York Times acknowledged Trump’s perceived victory, by some who do not support him. Other online websites affirmed Trump’s victory at the debate.
“I may not care for Trump, but he beat Hillary tonight fair and square even with Martha Raddatz trying to defeat him.” Erick Erickson, writer for The Resurgent
“He improved, exceeded expectations, decisively won several exchanges. She could have landed a death blow tonight and did not.”
The biggest exchange in the entire debate occurred when Clinton said,”it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Donald Trump responded, “Because you’d be in jail.”– A knock-out punch, indeed!
