    Debates don’t often change presidential races. Is 2016 the exception?

    That's right. Dukakis, who was favored to win, did win in 1988 after his rape answer in the debate. And Carter won in 1980 with the power of incumbency and the belief Reagan was a fool even though Reagan joked around a lot and pointed to Carter's record, which got Carter unsettled and nasty-looking. And Romney never would have been president if he had gone after Barry's extremism.


    While we're here, the Democrats wouldn't have Bernie as their candidate if he hadn't refused to take on Mrs. Bill Clinton's crimes. And, who knows, maybe Trump would be the Republican candidate if Cruz and Rubio had tried to strongly undercut him during the various debates they were all in.


    Wait......maybe debates DO change outcomes fairly often.
