What Really Happened During The First Debate?

If you missed the debate don’t worry, we have your back. Some say Donald won, others say Hillary won, but it isn’t as easy as that.

For the next few days we are going to be inundated with quotes from the debate and fact checking, but at the end of the day, both candidates did a good job.

Hillary didn’t lose her cool and kept pushing Donald to defend parts of his record and it worked out well for her. It also helps she didn’t have a coughing attack.

Trump didn’t mess up like everyone thought. He was defensive when Hillary pushed him a couple of times, but he also called out her lies a few times in epic fashion.

If you want to see the top highlights from the 90 minute debate in less than seven minutes, then watch this video.

They each got some good jabs in.

Hillary hitting Trump hard about his “racist birther” pursuit and Trump hit back equally as hard calling Hillary’s email scandal not a mistake, but intentional.

At the end of the night, left leaning polls had Hillary winning and right leaning polls had Donald Trump winning.

The debate was essentially a tie. Both candidates are going to have to answer for some inaccuracies over the next few days, but nothing was said that would cause either one to pull away in the polls.

Trump was rather polite and Hillary looked healthy so the debate didn’t go as most expected but both candidates should be happy with their performances today.

How do you think they did? Who won? Let us know in the comments below.
