    She's going to get us out of 200 years of debt by raising taxes on the wealthy?

    Are people going to think he's being too mean? Maybe a little too much interruption?

    Lester? Tax returns don't tell you any of these things. I think Trump did a good job of briefly passing over the question about tax returns, then moving on to things that people care about. But Lester is bringing it back again. A person's tax returns don't answer any of the questions that he is talking about.

    Okay. Good come back, Hillary. On the tax returns. So far, I think they're both doing pretty well, or both doing just as bad, depending on your perspective.

    Good. Trump is bringing up the fact that there isn't much to be learned from tax returns.

    If Trump can't run circles around her on the issue of security, Trump has lost. She has no credibility on that topic.

    Oh yeah, Hillary. Banning guns is a good way to keep us safe from terrorists.

    Trump should be doing a lot better on the security question. He was thrown off by the moderator questioning the constitutionality of his stop-and-frisk recommendation, I think. He's having trouble recovering. He is not doing awful here but this is where he should shine.

    Is everyone aware that anyone can be put on the no-fly list at any time, with no recourse that doesn't involve more money than most people have? One person can put someone's name on the no-fly list, so it is crazy to suggest that one person can deny someone their constitutional right without even having to give a reason, let alone prove it. Yet Trump just came out in favor of that, too.

    How can stop and frisk be unconstitutional, while denying someone their constitutional rights based on their name being placed on a list is constitutional?

    She is doing really well, and not looking sick like she was a few weeks ago. If she was really that sick before , how did she get this well this fast ? The last few times we have seen her, she was having to be helped around, and had the big doctor guy right next to her and coaxing her to keep talking.
    Now, she can stand fine, doesn't need even a stool like she had to have before.
    Something is not right about this picture. Either she was not as sick before as she appeared, she miraculously completely healed from some really serious illnesses, or this is another one of her "aliases", who is doing a great job and is well-trained.
    We expected the debate to favor Clinton; but so far the moderator seems to be doing okay. More mud-slinging thanks necessary; but I guess that is why a lot of people like to listen to the debates.
    She is definitely re-inventing herself as "Mrs. Average American", who is also qualified to the the best president .

    If Trump can't kick her ass on the subject of cyber-security, I don't know what to say.

    Enough with the endorsements, Trump. Talk about Hillary's total lack of credibility on the subject of cybersecurity, with her private emails, etc.

    Why is he giving her a break on cybersecurity?

    Hillary is doing very well even on subjects she should be particularly weak in, such as cybersecurity, and Trump seems to be giving her a pass here. I don't get it.

    So far, although neither of them is tanking, I would have to give it to Hillary. She is lying through her teeth but getting away with it.

    It looks like the Hillary campaign was successful in intimidating the moderator into "fact checking" Trump but leaving Hillary's lies alone.

    Lester is starting to double down in favor of Hillary now. He hasn't questioned a single one of her lies, yet chose to "fact check" Trump when he's probably telling the truth. Generally, when he makes a statement like this and insists on it, it turns out that he was right, but that comes after the fact.

    Now the moderator is arguing Hillary's points for her, without ever once questioning a word that Hillary has said. Yes, I agree that he started out well but he didn't continue to be a nonpartisan.

    Hillary is winning but it's two against one. Not a good performance by Trump, but Hillary wouldn't have done well either if not for the support of the moderator.

    I imagine that Trump knew when he went into the debate that the cards would be stacked in Hillary's favor. All of the earlier debates were favoring other candidates over Trump. With the controlled media, he doesn't have any place where he can actually have a truly fair debate.
    Considering all that, and we all know that Clinton lied her way through everything, I think that Trump probably came out as good as he could.
    He seemed to have a cold or something; so he might not have been feeling well either. The crowds were making a lot of noise that was blocked out somehow; and I am not sure if they were shouting for Trump of Hillary. I imagine that if they had been supporting Hillary, they would have let them go ahead and do it though.

    That's her only strength as I see it Ken. She is a "career liar" and she is VERY good at it. But I don't think she is going to fool the majority. Donald is "what you see is what you get". I see him as very honest, "unprogrammed" like hillary, it's like she is totally programmed and I believe the people are wanting a human in the Whitehouse, I know I do.

    I am glad someone else see's how biased that mod was, omg!! Trump just comes out looking better imo. He took it so well. And he is smart, knows the answers because he personally knows, it's his business to know. Hillary is programmed.

    I think she was using a lot of what Donald believes, I mean trying to copy him, just seemed that way. Like she's trying to win people by subtly copying Trumps plans, making them sound like her own??

    Yes Ken, I don't know if I'm right, but I so feel Donald is honest. And I see the facts on Hillary, watch her facial expressions, and I do not trust her to be honest. I'm just an average citizen, and I think there are plenty of "me's" out here that see this as well, I am praying so:) Yes, I think she is a very good liar, it seems to have served her well so why stop right.

    If she can plant doubts, she may win more votes. I think too many people know, thanks to the "underground" that puts out the truth on these things. But Donald himself is the one I look more at than media, never media is what I say.

    @Denise Happyfeet
    1) Copy Trump? You're kidding, right? :DI guarantee there is nothing about Donald Trump that Hillary
    Clinton or anyone else wants or needs to copy.
    2) Moderator Lester Holt let Trump interrupt and go on and on too many times. He should have shut him up.
    3) Trump lost his temper several times and dodged specific questions. No surprise there.

    He asked Hillary questions about policy, while he asked Trump about the birther issue and his tax returns. He didn't ask her about Benghazi, her emails, or her many lies. Of course, she is going to be able to spend more time talking about issues because she wasn't asked anything that was designed to distract from her message.
