U.S. presidential election (33): the second debate

I spent this evening watching a recording of every minute of the one and half hour second presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It was an ugly business which probably had minimal impact on voting intentions because both candidates will have been seen to have done well by their supporters.

For me, Clinton kept her cool. She was assured, fluent and statesman-like. Trump was sickening in his charges against Bill Clinton and his wish to see Hillary Clinton in jail. He was glowering and strutting like a modern-day Mussolini.

It looks as if Clinton is pulling ahead again in the polls as more and more Republican politicians withdraw support from Trump but, around the world, people are holding their breath in case the polls are wrong as they have been on some big political votes recently in a variety of countries.
