While both candidates had very different stress responses toward each other and toward the issues through the debate, both were hitting their individual emotional highs and lows and both were able to find their balance.
Like millions of other Americans, Benjamin Warner is watching this year's presidential debates very closely. However, he's one of the few viewers doin...
"Implicit" bias refers to associations that are not fully conscious. We could not survive if all our decisions were completely subject to the conscious mind. Because the mind processes so much information, the brain has evolved to look for short cuts.
Donald Trump's behavior following his clear defeat in Monday night's debate with Hillary Clinton calls into question whether or not he will be willing to accept November 8's results.
The goal of tonight's debate is for the two candidates to win your approval and man can I ever relate to that. It seems on one level or another all I seem to do is try to win over someone's approval. All. The. Time.
The problem is it's those whacks that Clinton and Trump spent most of their time honing to get that precious cheer and got cha' thrill from their partisans. This is no accident. This sad, sorry state of what presidential debates have been reduced too goes beyond just a pander to political thrill-seeking, negativism, and of course, personal attack attack attack.
Donald Trump defeated sixteen other candidates in order to win the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton struggled for months to hold off a Bernie Sanders insurgency. Though she had been convincingly ahead in polls in the weeks after the Democratic National Convention in July, that lead has been slipping into the single digits in most battleground state and national polls.
Just this morning, the Trump camp learned that there'd be no Celebrity Questions, as they were expecting. If not for an unnamed Russian hacker, who was able to seize a list of the real questions, Trump would've been going into Monday night's first round, completely in the dark.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump blamed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for a number of things during Monday night's debate, including her husband Bill's signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the collapse of the U.S. economy during President George W. Bush's administration, and the rise of the terrorist organization ISIS.
It was quite obvious at Monday night's debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that globalization -- an issue too hard to explain in a sound bite -- is The Issue of the election.
While the debate certainly gave Obama coalition voters ample reason to be against Trump, I'm not sure it gave them enough reason to be for Clinton with enough enthusiasm to drive the level of turnout necessary to ensure victory.
I waited a day to assess how the debate was analyzed by news accounts and pundits, and while there was a huge plurality in favor of Hillary's performance there were still the same old attempts to build Donald Trump up and give him credit for retracting stuff he said when no such credit should be acknowledged.
This seemed to be the beginning of a long, crazy adventure in an election that was greater than any piece of fiction any aspiring writer could ever pen, let alone dream up.
Secretary Clinton, I'm sorry. And I retract my previous position of hatred and angst towards you. You have also accomplished far more in your life as a public servant than just about anyone that's run for this office, and certainly far more than I ever will. When November rolls around, you'll have my vote.
Thank you so much, for hearing my request, during this most important debate!
The first presidential debate on September 26 proved the need for that control as moderator Lester Holt was unable to keep Donald Trump from talking over his opponent and Hillary Clinton from occasionally using extra time.
