Clinton May Have Won The Debate, But Trump's Message Will Resonate Powerfully With Voters

Most viewers would agree Clinton won the first Presidential debate. She was calm, relaxed and presidential compared to an abusive and abrasive Trump. CNN suggests 62% of viewers believe she won the debate compared to 27% for Trump. However, as polling day looms it will be his debate that people talk about, not Clinton's. Trumps tactics are sound.

How Do You Trump the Trump?

Ultimately the saving grace for anti-Trump Republicans might have to come when either Rubio or Cruz drop out of the race, allowing their supporters to combine rather than split their votes. I'm no Republican but for the sake of the tenor of political debate in America, I hope they are able to find an effective counter to the Donald Dynamo soon.

Why Cameron Is Right to Refuse an All Inclusive Televised Debate

While the broadcasting establishment may think they are being clever calling out Cameron and becoming the story, they are really cooking up even more voter dissatisfaction. Inclusive government, not inclusive TV debates, is the key.

Don't get me wrong, I love men. Some of my best friends are guys. David Beckham's one and my granny married three; intelligent, confident and forever towing my car somewhere, the men in my life have always been a source of great inspiration and wisdom to me. So when I launched my own company, I had no idea how much everything would change.

There's very widespread scientific agreement that climate change is occurring. But much of the argument and opposition revolves around whether it is human-induced or not.

I've Met 'Romney' and You Know What? He's a D*ck

It is often said that voters pick their candidate by asking the question: Which one would you want to have a beer with? Well since Pudney doesn't drink beer, I will pose an alternative question: Which candidate possesses cockish qualities which, if you saw them displayed in person, would make you say, 'I would never vote for that person'.

Humor Me: What's So Funny About the US Presidential Candidates?

When President Obama let fly the scolding, "Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets," to illustrate Mitt Romney's grasp of modern military during the third presidential debate, the chuckle could be heard around the world. Arguably Obama's retort accomplished what it intended to do: Embarrass his political rival and earn the president points as someone in the trenches - all under the forgiving cloak of humor.

Mainstream Mitt and the Race for the Middle

James Davis | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Politics
James Davis

Obama missed more than one opportunity to go on the offensive and force his opponent to reveal the details of any of those unseen "plans" he kept referring to (I counted at least four). But I'm not so sure that Romney will emerge the ultimate winner of this debate. By showing how quickly he is willing to throw off the cloak of the Republican right in order to appeal to mainstream Americans, he may have served to alienate both groups.
