Skip to comments.Twelve Days That Will Shake the World What Trump's debate win means for the 2020 campaign
Posted on 10/23/2020 8:44:59 AM PDT by Zenyatta
President Trump needed a strong debate performance to have any hope of slowing Joe Biden's momentum in the closing days of the 2020 campaign. And a strong debate performance is what he delivered. Trump didn't interrupt Biden or moderator Kristen Welker of NBC News. There was considerably less shouting than at the first debate. You could actually understand what was going on. And Trump was on message. He contrasted his record, policies, and outsider persona with Biden's. He argued for coping with the pandemic while reopening the economy and resuming in-person schooling. Perhaps most important, he defined Biden as a typical politician who is all talk and no action. And he seized on Biden's unforced error toward the end of the debate, when the former vice president admitted that he wants to "transition" from an economy fueled by oil and gas.
This time the expectations game favored Trump. The bar had been set so low for Biden prior to the first debate that all he had to do was demonstrate mental fitness and grasp of the issues. That shout-fest benefited neither candidate. But Trump fared worse. He took a dive in the polls afterward. And his subsequent coronavirus diagnosis and hospitalization didn't help matters. Biden's lead grew.

Biden had momentum? LOL, uh, no he didn’t...
The author apparently never had physics. Newton's First Law of Motion or the Law of Inertia: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Biden has been holed up in his basement for the past 5 days. No one goes to his campaign events. And now a force acted upon Biden last night at the debate. It was certainly an unbalanced force. No need to go into vectors here, but let's just say they can have negative magnitude.
The first sentence is pretty off-the-wall. Bidens momentum? Uh huh...

Whoops! My bullshit meter just broke.
News at 11:00. A candidate who hides in his basement and gives rallies to a dozen people (or less) does NOT have “momentum.”
