The Vice Presidential Debates – Observations and Electoral Projection Update

On October 4, 2016, the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, the honorable Mike Pence, and the Democrat Vice Presidential candidate, the honorable Tim Kane, participated in a political debate.  Elaine Quijano was the debate moderator.

OBSERVATIONS: I would award Ms. Quijano a grade of A+ for fairness.  I would award Ms. Quijano a grade of A for asking intelligent questions.  Also, I would rate Ms. Quijano a grade of A for attempting to moderate the debate.  She was vastly superior to the dimwitted Lester Holt who moderated the first presidential debate.  Of course her common sense and fairness really irritated the democrats who expect all members of the media to explicitly and implicitly bias all questions and comments in favor of the democrat party.

The democrat candidate, Mr. Tim Kaine, displayed rudeness and arrogance throughout the debate and basically displayed vile and reprehensible behavior by continually interrupting his opponent.  Of course, Mr. Kaine’s reprehensible behavior is simply a page from Saul Alinsky’s book.  Fortunately, Mr. Pence, the Republican candidate, was much too sophisticated to “jump into the cesspool” like Mr. Kaine hoped. Indeed Mr. Pence appeared articulate, presidential, and in total command.

PRESIDENTIAL POLL UPDATE: contacted registered independent voters in the following eleven states on October 5, 2016.  The states were: 1) Iowa, 2) Ohio, 3) North Carolina, 4) Georgia, 5) Florida, 6) Arizona, 7) Nevada, 8) Colorado, 9) Wisconsin, 10) Pennsylvania, and 11) Michigan.  Using the data collected on October 5, 2016,in conjunction with the national polls conducted in these eleven states, projects that if the election for president were held on October 5, 2016, the following results would be obtained.  With 270 electoral votes needed to win the election, Ms. Clinton would have a certain 187 electoral votes; Mr. Trump would have a certain 249 electoral votes; and 104 electoral votes are much too close to be fairly assigned to either candidate at this time.
