Trump v Clinton, Round Two: Who Won?

Trump v Clinton, Round Two: Who Won?by

We’re a month away from the polls, and the US Presidential Election has never been more dramatic. Over the weekend, White House hopeful Donald Trump’s campaign on behalf of the Republican Party hit particular turmoil as a video from 2005 re-emerged, with the candidate voicing a number of opinions on women and his ‘star power’ – with several high-profile Republican names having rescinded their support and even endorsement for the mogul in response. Trump apologized for his words, and while he has found some backing from loyal supporters, there is no doubting that this particular turn in the Trump campaign has hit hardest.

Could the leak have come at a worse time for the Trump camp than immediately ahead of the second live Presidential debate? Maybe so, and maybe not. The debate was much fiercer than its predecessor, with Trump taking a number of vocal stances against his rivals on areas which the Clinton camp still find somewhat sensitive. Trump sought to use the second debate to his advantage – he did so, by going on the offensive – but unfortunately for the Trump camp, Clinton was already prepared for such tactics - for the most part.

The US media has largely sided with Clinton on the question as to who truly ‘won’ the debate – however, certain outlets have claimed that Trump’s strategy was effective, and that he held his own on the debate floor in comparison with his performance in the preceding debate. Despite this, however, media sources claiming that the night was a ‘Trump victory’ remain in the minority, as many were keen to point out that while the ex-Apprentice star may have re-invigorated his own camp, he may have done little to win over any swing voters – this, as the media is generally suggesting, is where Clinton picked up steam.

A CNN/ORC poll on the debate saw Clinton take a 57% majority of support over 34% support for Trump – and while Clinton’s percentage may have decreased from the first debate, it is likely that her camp will be taking the night as a victory – while Trump’s campaign team aim to do the same.

It is an election campaign that is perhaps the most shocking and most bitterly-fought in recent memory. Trump remains a divisive candidate who, while retaining a solid core of support, continues to cause strong concern within his own party. Clinton, meanwhile, remains a controversial figure following the scandal revolving around her email use while under Barack Obama’s employ, and as a number of facts from her own history continue to be unearthed alongside Trump’s in an effort to level the playing field. America has a month to decide – and until then, the world will be waiting with baited breath.
