Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America evaluate the third presidential debate. They give Donald Trump credit for his best performance on the issues and putting Hillary Clinton on the defensive but allowed the takeaway to be his refusal to accept the election results. They also hammer Hillary Clinton for her pure fiction that the landmark Heller decision was about toddlers getting access to guns, her dodging on open borders and the Clinton Foundation and letting the world know how soon we can launch nuclear weapons. And we applaud moderator Chris Wallace for picking good topics, asking tough questions of both candidates and keeping everyone in line.

And they react to a poll showing Trump’s lead in Texas is now at the margin of error.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Mike Pence for consistently articulating conservative principles in Tuesday’s vice presidential debate.

And we disagree that Donald Trump is a genius for using massive losses in 1995 to legally avoid federal income taxes for almost 20 years, but also slam critics who say he should have paid anyway and that paying taxes is some form of patriotism.
