The First Debate: A Recap

In the first debate last night, there were no great one-liners, no memorable moments, and no major gaffes. However, Hillary Clinton consistently outperformed Donald Trump by remaining calm as Trump shouted angrily about something or another. It didn't help that Trump had some terrible answers, especially on race issues.


Clinton did not have an incredible debate, but she seemed very presidential as her opponent did not. She didn't fall into the traps Trump often laid for his Republican opponents back in the primaries, and set some very good traps that Trump easily fell into.


Trump didn't do awfully, but he gave a lot of non-answers and appeared irritated and often angry. It was clear he was overmatched and underprepared.

However, as usual, we must wait to see what the polls say.
