Trump will be Trump at the debate.
The rub is this; at this point the two major party candidates are really fishing for those who are currently expressing an intention to vote for one of the third party candidates - the chances of major defections from those saying they will vote for Trump or Hillary now is low, but traditionally third part ...[text shortened]... h Republican primary voters, but as I have stated that is not the critical target audience here.
"I also don't agree that aggressive actions by male candidates toward females ones at debates are helpful to the former."
--No1Marauder (to Vistesd)
No1Marauder's many extremely aggressive and abusive actions against me show his hypocrisy.
I suspect that No1Marauder has misunderstood or distorted Vistesd's apparent position.
I don't believe that Vistesd was claiming that EVERY kind of 'aggressive action' or sexist
argument by a male politician against a female politician must work. The MOST OBVIOUS
TRANSPARENT SEXIST arguments likely would be counter-productive. If Donald Trump
were to say explicitly that Hillary Clinton must not be elected because no woman ever
could be qualified to be US President, only the most sexist voters would agree with it.
So Donald Trump needs to make a sexist argument without appearing too overtly sexist.
'Dog whistle' sexism works like 'dog whistle' racism.
I suspect that Vistesd believes (like some male political analysts do) that Donald Trump
could use SOME kind of sexist argument to his advantage against Hillary Clinton.
Notwithstanding No1Marauder's willful blindness to sexism, including his own, sexism
remains a significant factor (some studies or surveys seem to find) in US politics today.
I expect No1Marauder to sneer at the men who disagree with his blindness toward sexism.
The lawyer No1Marauder has a record of making disingenuous arguments, sometimes
apparently appealing to sexism or rape myths, on behalf of men accused or convicted
of rape or sexual assault. Accordingly, No1Marauder likes to take advantage of sexism
while pretending that it does not exist or is not important.
