How Trump Wins the Debate

By:Pat Buchanan | September 23, 2016


On one of my first trips to New Hampshire in 1991, to challenge President George H. W. Bush, I ran into Sen. Eugene McCarthy.


He was returning to the scene of his '68 triumph, when he had inflicted the first crippling wound on Lyndon Johnson.


"Pat, you don't have to win up here, you know," he assured me. "All you have to do is beat the point spread."


"Beat the point spread" is a good description of what Donald Trump has to do in Monday night's debate.


With only a year in national politics, he does not have to show a mastery of foreign and domestic policy details. Rather, he has to do what John F. Kennedy did in 1960, and what Ronald Reagan did in 1980.


In that sense, this debate and this election are Trump's to win.
