Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have difficulty imagining that Trump helped himself in this debate. I cannot imagine that any women who  were undecided will be convinced to vote for the Mansplainer in Chief. I cannot see how Trump helped himself with the active military or the vets, especially in his disrespect and lying about Hunter Biden's service in Iraq and his subsequent death. And I cannot see ANY Black or Latinx being won over to Trump. Re Proud Boys Trump said "Stand by!"

And this is all BEFORE we get to the handling of COVID, the deaths and the economic disruption caused by Trump's incompetence and self absorption. This debate video should be a gift that keeps giving for the Biden campaign. Run a clip of Trump trying to talk over Chris Wallace, the moderator. Note that we HAVE HAD dignified governments and presidents in the past. Ask if you, the voter, want a return to dignity and competence or four more years of Trumian chaos.

Once again Trump put on vivid display his contempt for the norms of the US process of conducting elections. He is running against the whole electoral process. Now the Biden campaign should insist that any future debates have the candidates in glass booths and that the moderator is required to mute the microphone of the candidate who is NOT supposed to be speaking. Level the playing field.
