Donald Trump Failing to Recover After 1st Debate Hillary Shimmy Loss - Betfair Betting Market

ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016 Sep 30, 2016 - 06:54 AM GMT

The betting markets tend to be better short-term gauge for reactions to political events such as the debates. In which respect Donald Trump is showing NO signs of recovering from Monday's debate loss, instead the Betfair market odds have continued to widen from 2.88 (Trump) / 1.57 Hillary just prior to the start of the debate at 2am BST, which following the debate at 4am had widened to 3.35 (Trump) / 1.44 Hillary) and now 3 full days later the betfair market price is 3.45 (Trump) / 1.45 Hillary. Thus Hillary is continuing to capitalise on Trumps debate loss by widening her lead further, which means whatever post debate strategy Trumps team is deploying is just not working!


Though of course the betting markets could once more turn out to be just as wrong as they were for the UK's EU referendum.

Whilst there's marginally better news where the opinion polls are concerned as prior to the debate Hillary was on 44% against Trump on 41%. Whilst today Hillary stands on 44.5% against Trump on 42%, so a 0.5% narrowing of Hillary's lead. Though opinion polls in my opinion are pretty much worthless, always weighted and skewed in favour of those commissioning the polls.

The next debate is on Sunday 9th October with the third and final debate on October 19th.

See the following video for why Donald Trump lost the 1st debate to Hillary Clinton:

Trump's debate loss boiled down to "tax, birth and pigs", so it's no wonder Hillary was shimmying.

However, they say to know who really won a debate you have to watch the debate with the sound off, whilst its not possible to watch 90 minutes, but even a few minutes of watching the debate with the sound down can result in a completely different result! For it's the old Kennedy / Nixon phenomena, where those who listened to the debate on Radio concluded that Nixon won, whilst those who watched it on TV concluded Kennedy won. So who wins if the the sound is turned down? See for yourself in this 3 minute video -

As for a forecast for who most probably will win to become the next US President, watch:

Trump lost to Clinton

Hillary Clinton's attacks didn't miss the target, while she was shrugging Donald Trump's attacks off. Trump kept expalinig himself or telling how good he is, which was boringly repetitive. On many occasions, Trump was astonishingly clumsy. For exaple, Clinton said twice (if I remember correctly) that what Trump is proposing led to the big recession that they are recovering from. Trump said nothing. For Christ's sake, she is a socialist, and as a businessman, Trump could sink Clinton by properly responding to that statement.

Generally, the debate was very very average, or maybe that's the accurate level for the American public, the most dumbed down nation on the planet?

Is Trump going to do a better job next time? He claims that he won the debate. If he believes so, it should be worrying.
