I correctly predicted that Pence’s superior gravitas would carry the day. Undecided voters got annoyed by Kaine’s constant interruptions of Pence. Kaine’s strategy to keep talking about Trump’s taxes was a failure. Undecided voters get that no one pays more taxes than they are legally obligated to pay.
Most of the topics discussed during the debate benefited the Trump campaign. It covered illegal immigration, terrorism, and Pence was able to hit Hillary on her private email server and the 33,000 deleted emails, and on the Clinton Foundations.
Pence’s only mistake was to talk about abortion when the question was only about religious beliefs. That was a real softball question which Pence should have used to talk about his moral values that are commonly shared, such as honesty and commitment to his family and children.

Back on July 14th, when Pence was only a rumor and not yet official, I wrote “he seems like the best vice presidential pick by a Republican nominee since Bush picked Cheney sixteen years ago.” I am always right about vice presidents. The politicians should pay me for my advice instead of the bozos who told McCain to pick Palin and Romney to pick Ryan and Bush Sr. to pick Quayle.
