Did Trump throw the debate to make people scared?

So I watched the debate, and it was ter­ri­ble. Seri­ously. I was hop­ing to watch Trump com­pletely oblit­er­ate Hillary, and yet all I saw was a lot of inter­rupt­ing. As my three year old would say, it was a lot of “Blah Blah Blah.”

But maybe that was the point?

Oddly enough, my wife, who is very anti-​Trump and lean­ing towards sim­ply writ­ing in a can­di­date, talked to me last night about vot­ing for Trump. She said she fears Hillary and what she would do to the Supreme Court much more than any­thing Trump has done. She’s also not a fan of Hillary’s for­eign pol­icy, which unlike Trump we’ve had a chance to see first hand.

She’s not the only one. More than a few peo­ple have come out to me and said they will likely vote Trump because they are legit­i­mately scared of Hillary. They think Trump will mod­er­ate his views over time, but that Hillary will sim­ply do what­ever she wants.

So it made me won­der: did Trump throw the debate to make peo­ple scared? He’s not stu­pid, and he cer­tainly did well in pre­vi­ous debates. He has plenty of Hillary zingers.

I per­son­ally think he did, and did it to scare his base. He’s try­ing to ruf­fle the anti-​Trumpers, who despite hat­ing him will look at a future with Hillary and be 10 times as scared. I’m bet­ting his debate per­for­mance improves such that the last debate is a doozy for Clinton…if she doesn’t fall over from a cough­ing fit before then.

So I watched the debate, and it was terrible. Seriously. I was hoping to watch Trump completely obliterate Hillary, and yet all I saw was a lot of interrupting. As my three year old would say, it was a lot of “Blah Blah Blah.”

But maybe that was the point?

Oddly enough, my wife, who is very anti-Trump and leaning towards simply writing in a candidate, talked to me last night about voting for Trump. She said she fears Hillary and what she would do to the Supreme Court much more than anything Trump has done. She’s also not a fan of Hillary’s foreign policy, which unlike Trump we’ve had a chance to see first hand.

She’s not the only one. More than a few people have come out to me and said they will likely vote Trump because they are legitimately scared of Hillary. They think Trump will moderate his views over time, but that Hillary will simply do whatever she wants.

So it made me wonder: did Trump throw the debate to make people scared? He’s not stupid, and he certainly did well in previous debates. He has plenty of Hillary zingers.

I personally think he did, and did it to scare his base. He’s trying to ruffle the anti-Trumpers, who despite hating him will look at a future with Hillary and be 10 times as scared. I’m betting his debate performance improves such that the last debate is a doozy for Clinton…if she doesn’t fall over from a coughing fit before then.
