Ron Reagan & Mary Matalin look at the first Clinton-Trump Debate through the lens of their respective experiences with Reagan 40 and Bushs 41+43. Our collective judgment is that while Trump will beat very low “expectations” (as was true of Ron’s father in 1980), Clinton’s superior knowledge and experience will enable her to win the debate in the eyes of not the media but actual voters.  And precisely because NBC’s Matt Lauer leaned so hard against Clinton in the “Commander-in-Chief “forum, it’s now more likely that Holt will lean into Trump a bit more, perhaps even “fact-check” since he’s a journalist, not a stenographer. Also, Wells Fargo Fraud, Driverless Cars, Skittles.
