The Democrat debate on Thursday night did not do the Democrats any favors.
The candidates came off as angry and lacking positive solutions. More free stuff, more socialism, more banning things, more gun control and more of the same.
Columnist Michael Goodwin says there was one winner though. Trump.
He writes at the New York Post:
Trump the real winner as Biden again proves he’s not cut out to be nominee
And the winner is … Donald Trump.
The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable.
Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he can’t manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself.
Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a random thought popped into his head and out his mouth. None of his rivals needed to interrupt him — he did it to himself.
Most of the time I had no idea what he was trying to say, let alone what he actually said. I veered between feeling sorry for him and expecting the AFLAC duck to come out on stage and shake its head in bewilderment.
Other people thought the same thing:

Democrats have real reasons to be worried about 2020.
Especially if this is the best they’ve got.
