The post-debate polls are screaming in the headlines, with many showing Trump dominating the night while other liberal outlets giving the edge to Hillary.
These polls mean little, however, when compared to some straight talk from real Americans.
In a Pennsylvania town, at a bar frequented by the late Arnold Palmer, a group of undecided voters gathered to watch the debate. When Trump and Clinton wrapped up, many of them had made up their minds for one candidate.
This is what the media is not telling you. From the New York Post:
Ken Reed sat down at the main bar of the Tin Lizzy tavern with two things in mind: to dig into the tavern’s oversize cheese steak, and watch the presidential debate.
“I am hungry and undecided, in that order,” he said, digging into the savory dish in a bar that dates back to 1746.
Reed, 35, is a registered Democrat and small businessman. “By the end of the debate, Clinton never said a thing to persuade me that she had anything to offer me or my family or my community,” he said.
“Have to say Trump had the edge this evening, he came out swinging but also talked about specifics on jobs and the economy,” Reed said.
“I am a small businessman, a farmer, come from a long line of farmers and coal miners. The policies she talked about tonight ultimately either hurt me or ignore me,” he said.
Another Democrat weighed in and gave a response that should make Hillary very nervous:
“I’ve been a Democrat all of my life, but when Clinton mentions her husband and the jobs he brought to the country in the ’90s, it’s not a fair assessment. She is no moderate Democrat the way he was, her policies would not bring back jobs,” said Nathan Nemick.
It burns Nemick when Clinton references her husband, like she did in the debate on trade and jobs. “She is nothing like him,” he said of the Democrat he admired in his youth.
Before the debate, the latest CNN poll showed a virtual tie in the Keystone State.
Many polls are showing the race to be neck and neck in Pennsylvania; if Trump won there, pundits are pretty certain Trump would also win in more moderate states like North Carolina and Ohio and ultimately sweep the table into the White House. While punches went flying in both directions at this debate, voters seem to be seeing through Hillary’s facade and are more impressed by Trump’s authenticity. If this keeps up, Hillary’s toast come November 8th.
