Tonight’s debate is anticipated to draw an audience of up to 100mm as viewers are “expecting the unexpected”. Anticipation for some sort of controversy at tonight’s debate grew over the weekend after chatter arose on twitter that Bill’s former mistress, Gennifer Flowers, may attend the debate as Trump’s guest. Viewers will also be focused on whether or not the debate moderator, Lester Holt, steps in to “fact check” Trump, a controversial policy that landed CNN’s host, Candy Crowley, in hot water back in 2012 after she “fact checked” Mitt Romney even though her “facts” turned out to be inaccurate.
Meanwhile, the New York Times endorsed Hillary for President (shocking, we know) by offering up a scathing review of Trump called “Why Donald Trump Should Not Be President” which, among other things, describes Trump as a “man who dwells in bigotry, bluster and false promises.” Of course, the NYT attack piece on Trump called on all the typical democrat narratives against republicans noting that Trump’s “campaign marked by bursts of false and outrageous allegations, personal insults, xenophobic nationalism, unapologetic sexism and positions that shift according to his audience and his whims.” Of course, the Times also chose to hammer Trump on his “brazen refusal to disclose his tax returns” and his “questionable” ties to Russia. So, basically the same old stuff.
We guess the NYT has chosen to simply ignore the myriad of scandals, sorry plumes of smoke, surrounding their chosen candidate.
In any event, here is where things stand in the latest polls at we head into tonight’s debate.
The latest Bloomberg poll, out today, reveals a 2-point lead for Trump in a 4-way race.
