Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank, I am glad you conclude that Trump lost. I could not even finish watching. I have to watch my blood pressure these days and, in any case, I am incapable of being dispassionate about a choice between a wannabe fascist dictator and even a DNC centrist Democrat.

The choice is what it is. But, for what it is worth, I failed to see how Trump's performance could have persuaded any but his already fervent supporters to support him. An obnoxious candidate with a badly deformed personality is not a pretty thing to watch - unless one identifies with him.

Trump only leads Biden by one point among men and trails Biden by fourteen points among women. Most women are not impressed by Trump's 'Alpha Male' act. Instead Trump comes across as an Alpha Ape. The Gender Gap rules.

Trump repeated Fox News and other Right Wing Bubble Machine propaganda leaving 75% of the audience scratching their heads wondering what he talking about.
