• Some Proposed Changes for the Next Presidential Debate Seem … Troubling?

    Surge Summary: The Commission on Presidential Debates is responding to calls for changes in the way the next Presidential Debate is carried out by promising some things will be different. For instance, the next moderator allegedly will be an anti-Trump, former intern to … Joe Biden! These changes seem problematic, at best.

    The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced that it is changing some of the rules for the remaining debates between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.  Here’s something else the commission should change:  the moderator.

    C-SPAN’s Steve Scully is currently scheduled to moderate the next presidential debate.  But we’re just learning that Scully worked on Jimmy Carter’s 1976 presidential campaign, for Sen. Ted Kennedy and he also interned for . . . Joe Biden!

    In June of 2016 he posted a picture of himself with the former vice president at the “Biden Beach Bash.”  The same year, he also tweeted out an anti-Trump New York Times opinion piece entitled, “No, Not Trump, Not Ever.”

    If the Commission on Presidential Debates won’t replace Scully with someone who hasn’t interned for the Democrat presidential nominee, then I suggest it at least provide some balance by providing an additional moderator, perhaps a serious journalist like Brit Hume.

    Meanwhile, the latest Investor’s Business Daily poll, one of the most accurate polls, finds the race is statistically tied – 48.6% for Biden to 45.9% for Trump.

    It is important to note that the poll was conducted after Tuesday night’s debate, and it shows the race narrowing after previous IBD polls had Trump down six to eight points.
