Hillery accuses us as being implicitly biased.
What is implicit bias?

Implicit bias occurs when someone consciously rejects stereotypes and supports anti-discrimination efforts but also holds negative associations in his/her mind unconsciously. Scientists have learned that we only have conscious access to 5 percent of our brains—much of the work our brain does occurs on the unconscious level. Thus, implicit bias does not mean that people are hiding their racial prejudices. They literally do not know they have them. More than 85 percent of all Americans consider themselves to be unprejudiced. Yet researchers have concluded that the majority of people in the United States hold some degree of implicit racial bias.
What a crock.

Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of Monday night's debate by 62% of voters who tuned in to watch, while just 27% said they thought Donald Trump had the better night.

The real disappointment is found in the breakdown of pre-debate alliances.

26% of the respondents who participated in tonight's survey identified themselves as Republicans,

41% identified themselves as Democrats,

and 33% identified themselves as Independents

Why would anybody be disappointed by breakdown of respondents? Does such a person have a world-view that expects or requires Republicans to become respondents to a certain poll?

No, really. I sincerely cannot make sense of this.

My disappointment (as stated) was in the pre-debate alliances = before they were "respondents."

The numbers/% shown is not a fair representation/balance of the two main groups. It appears to me that if a portion of the independents are swayed to either side, we get figures predictably like the final poll results.

At least it was a scientific poll showing the random imbalance openly.
The other polls I saw through out this thread were meaningless online polls where respondents were not accounted for and you could vote multiple times if you wish.
Meaningless.

Personally, I don't care which one of these 2 clowns (the criminal one or the immature one) "won" the debate! What I want to know is which one supports the US Constitution, limited Federal government as identified within the US Constitution, enforcing the 2nd amendment restrictions on the Governmental infringement by the feds on the "right of the people to keep and bear arms' by eliminating all federal infringment of this right which "shall not be infringed", and returning us to GOD as a country and as individuals?
