Following First Presidential Debate, Clinton Falters Among some Focus Group Voters in Swing State of North Carolina


So the MSM says that Hillary Clinton won the first debate. REALLY? Not according to McClatchy and The Charlotte Observer, who conducted a focus group of 21 individuals. Before the debate, the tally was 9 for Clinton, 3 for Trump, 6 undecided and 3 for Libertarian party candidate Johnson. Following the debate that the MSM can’t keep telling you about that Hillary won, a funny thing happened …the tally became 7 for Clinton, 3 for Trump, 6 undecided and 5 for Johnson. Thus, Clinton lost support, Trump broke even and a candidate that didn’t even take part in it gained support. Yeah, that sounds like a Clinton victory, doesn’t it? The fact of the matter is just because Hillary Clinton sounded rehearsed, some might so over-rehearsed, just because she appeared more prepared and over-smiled during the debate, doesn’t make one a victor. Donald Trump, not a career politician, did not have to win the debate, to win the debate. Trump had to come off as plausible. He did. Obviously, the pundits and MSM, who have consistently got all of the political happenings wrong for the past year are once again falling back into the same trap. This is an outlier election where the norms do not apply and the people do not want a rehearsed, same old, same old career politician with the same stale answers to issues that have not worked for 30 years.

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.

For the four who emerged less impressed by Clinton, it was the seeming familiarity of her proposals for the economy and national security that was a turnoff.

Roberts, who is unaffiliated with a party, wrote in her notes several times during the debate that Clinton offered “pie in the sky” ideas. By debate’s end, she had moved from leaning toward Clinton to undecided.

“The things she says she’s going to do, there’s no substance behind it,” Roberts said.

One potential winner in the focus group was Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, who benefited largely because so many voters were annoyed at both Trump and Clinton.

Look for Donald Trump to take the gloves off in debate II and nail Clinton for her lies, lack of ethics, putting America at risk with her private email server when she was Secretary of State and how she seemed to have no problem how her husband has treated women over the years.

Even Uber-Lib Michael Moore Thinks Donald Trump Won the Debate … Donald Trump “won” and “we all lost.”

As the liberal media tries to spin the presidential debate … Michael Moore says Hillary lost. There seem to be many other polls that confirm Moore’s greatest fears, Trump won.

Michael Moore L

Michael Moore appeared frustrated on Twitter following the presidential debate, saying Donald Trump “won” and “we all lost.”

The 62-year-old filmmaker warned “pro-Hillary gloaters” against celebrating over how Hillary Clinton did in the debate against the Republican nominee and insisted nothing she did changed things.

“Pro-Hillary gloaters doing end-zone dance again when still on 50-yd line,” Moore tweeted. “You must get it in your head Trump is gonna win and act accordingly!”
