There is a degree of panic in the establishment with Trump’s rise (and Hillary’s fall) in the polls. You can expect a lot of pressure in the media for the debate “moderators” to gang up on Trump at the debates. I expect the most shenanigans from Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper in the second “town hall” forum. Still, Trump needs to be prepared to be called out by any of the moderators.A general election debate is definitely not a primary debate. Trump needs to be ready for that, but if Roger Ailes is assisting him he has one of the best coaches out there.
Lester Holt is moderating the first debate on September 26. Here are the topics to be addressed.
