I certainly agree with you. But I think it's not a universal point of view. There have to be some out there that are waiting to make up their minds for when the two of them (or three if we get lucky) debate it out, on a live stage. I wonder what % of people that truly includes. I have to imagine it's a small minority of voters. But still, perhaps it's the difference in the popular vote? Or a swing state district? Hard-to-impossible to say really.
I don't care for the entire presidential political campaign. And the debates are clearly for ratings, buzz, and everyone hoping for trend-worthy gaffs, and for pundits to "grade" each candidate, seconds afterward. Gives the 24-hour news networks fodder for weeks at a time as well.
It takes a rare speech or a rare candidate of character to really own the debate, to sway me to their side of things, if I wasn't already there to begin with. For me, it's only ever emboldened my opinion of the candidates, and the absurd performance of the entire thing; so staged, so canned, so un-genuine. A shame really, as it could be a brilliant 3 nights of real debate, and real excitement to see real ideas clashing in real time. Instead, we will get name calling, gotcha moments, talking points, questions going completely unanswered so they can redirect again to their buzz word bullet p0ints they were told by their constituents they really need to drive home hard.... it's a circus. But it could be so much more.
