The historic debate between Clinton and Trump has liberal elites believing that Clinton has it in the bag, even though Trump has been declared the winner, they still want to believe it. The main question is whether or not Hillary moved the needle among independents and swing state voters.
That’s highly unlikely.
From Charlotte Observer:
Kae Roberts and Jay Eardly were leaning toward Hillary Clinton before Monday night’s debate.
By the end, they had both pulled away.
John Kokos and Hank Federal were undecided going in, potential Clinton backers.
By the end, they’d ruled her out.
Indeed, while polls found that Clinton had won the first general-election debate with Donald Trump on Monday, she may not have won actual votes. And she may even have lost some, at least in the battleground state of North Carolina.
In a focus group of 21 voters from around Charlotte conducted by McClatchy and The Charlotte Observer, four who had been up for grabs before the debate had moved away from her by the end.
The view from the liberal rose colored glasses shows that Hillary had a good debate, but we will have to wait and see what the swing state polls come back with towards the end of the week.
