Hillary Clinton has soundly trounced Donald Trump in their first debate – the defeat was an embarrassment for the GOP nominee who was completely unprepared and demonstrated he was not up to the task. Donald Trump continuously sniffled throughout the evening and in the end claimed his loss was due to a faulty microphone and that there had been no sniffling. He has crowed that he will not be so easy on Clinton in their next meeting and is hinting he will attack Secretary Clinton by rehashing former President Clinton’s infidelities. Please, Donald, be ignorant enough to open yourself up to having your own sordid past paraded across the debate stage.
Nationally, Clinton begins to pull away again.

While national polling seems to indicate a close race for the White House, as the impact of last Monday’s debate, and Donald Trump’s continuous excuses for failure, and his continued attacks upon a Miss Universe contestant, Gold Star parents, veterans and former POWS, along with the disabled, his character becomes all too clearly evident. He is not a man who is remotely ready for the office of the President. State polling indicates a much clearer view of how the race is going.
