It would be nice if NH would start showing some more results.

Any guess as to which states will be called at poll closing time?

I think IN and KY for Trump. VT for Clinton. SC, GA, VA too early too call.

That is a pretty safe bet. Although VA will most likely go for Clinton the key district around D.C. will not be enough at 7pm for a call.

Anyone looking at predictit.org?

https://electionbettingodds.com/, which combines betfair and predictit odds, is at 84.3% Clinton.  It was 81.9 this morning and 82.3 in mid-afternoon.

Interesting to watch, since they seem to react relatively quickley to developments.

Trump stops the hemorrhaging baiscally sums up the debate. He has not gone off the deep end. He has stabelized and has brought the Republicans behind him again.

How this plays out will remain to be seen. The third debate and what happens in the weeks between will tell us more.

An interesting perspective just stated on CNN: Hillary Clinton won because she lost tonights debate.

If Trump had completely unhinged in this debate the Republicans just might have abandoned Trump and put up a new candidate that just might have had a chance of winning the election after all.

*thinking and scratching head*

It seems that Trump has stopped the hemorrhage with his performance tonight.

The post debate will show how effective he actually was.

He did drop a lot of controverial potentially damaging statements, which might come back and haunt him.

He had nothing to lose tonight and when you can't lose every performance seems like a win.

The debate ended surprisingly on a very civil note. Including a hand shake.

Trump seems to have done better preperation for this debate. He is doing better than in the first debate.

The fact that he did so poorly in the first debate makes that easy.

His performance, though, is far from stellar.

Pence is coming away from the debate as the winner. He has been described as pollished and Kaine was overly aggressive. It will be interesting to see what affect this will have on the race.

I good showing by Pence may not help Trump, but it could slow the slide Trump has been in.

Not sure if I am looking forward to the media's expert's analysis of this debate.

Lol nobody cares about North Korea. Kim Jong Un is watching this and fuming!

chuckle :-)

I imagine if Kaine had retained composure he might have won this debate. He has had a lot of strong points. The constant interrupting and the way he has interrupted have been distracting and put him in the image of being nervous and not in command of the debate.

Pence has not really made any strong points at all, but by retaining composure, he has made the appearence that he is on top of the debate. This was especially so at the beginning.

It will be interesting to see how this will be spun by the media and the impressesion that prevails on twitter and other social media.

Just realized that I have inadvertently stopped listening. Did I miss anything?

I wonder how many viewers actually will have stuck through this to the end.

Kaine has brought up the key points in this campaign--taxes, immigration, Donald's insults and discrimination toward women, Hispanics, and Muslims--and nothing Pence has said will quell voters' opinions on those. Pence has maintained his composure, which is a plus, but nothing he has said will undo Hillary's massive gains since the first debate.

Maintaining composure should not be underestimated.

I think Pence will win on points. Kaine has been able to land some punches but his constant interrupting has hurt him from the start. Pence appears more collected and able to counter attacks.

This is hard to listen to. Kaine is a little too aggressive. I imagine a lot of viewers will be tuning out.

This constant interrupting getting to be a little much. I'm not sure this will work for him.

They're wearing Atlas colors lol

It is obviously a new trend.

There was much aticipation going into tonights debate. Many question Trump's ability to do well especially after his assumed lack preperation.

It seems that he had did have difficulties. First polls show Clinton as the debate winner. The trading platforms have moved back in favor of Clinton and the democrates.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the next few day.

The stamina counter at Trump with the 11-hour congressional interview was absolutely murderous.

That hit hard

Could be Russia, could be China, could be someone sitting on their beds weighing 400 lb

LOL
