Direct evidence no.....but from watching actual debates, it’s quite obvious.

Anyone who watched the Republican primaries last year can clearly convey the change in Jeb Bush’s measured demeanor, to a guy on the attack in later debates, trying to increase his energy and spark.

I think Biden was much more fiery in debate #2. Some could say it was in response to Kamala Harris’s strategy in debate #1, but “Sleepy Joe” is kinda how he was viewed after rd 1. To defend his ground he had to change strategy and he faired far better in debate #2.

I’d say his recent campaign speeches may be even the biggest difference. He was really personal in his attacks of Trump and leaned a lot further left in terms of rhetoric than he’d previously been in his stops....IMO.
Candidates change debate tactics all the time. It seems like trying to make an arbitrary connection.

I saw that speech and Biden was really good. When he talked about a POTUS supposed to be leading and knowing when to say something and when not to during a tragedy.

He was forceful without being crazed.

Yeah he's not my favorite candidate of the Dems in the primary, but the speech like yesterday is one of the reasons if he ends up being the nominee I wouldn't have a problem voting for him. His tone was on point, which I don't really think should be surprising since moments like yesterday, contrasting himself to Trump are the reason that he got into the race.

This is the Dems' election to win, but they haven't been doing very well so far, imo. Does Joe Biden really excite anyone? His biggest selling points seem to be 1) he's not Trump and 2) he was President Obama's VP.

I don't expect to agree with really any policies that the Democrats put out there, but student debt forgiveness is something that could make me say "screw it, I disagree with all of the other policies, but this is something that would directly improve my life so I'm voting for you." Republicans aren't putting anything out there, so if the Dem candidate has a good enough proposal that could sway me.
What type of program would you like to see?

Do you have any evidence that they actually changed their debate strategy?
I specifically recall Jeb Bush, Rubio and Rand Paul all coming out swinging at Trump in the debate after their respective sequential national pantsings over the course of several debates.

Rubio even came out with some lame ass insults:


Rand Paul tried one insult and than laid down and slinked off, as is his wont.

I don't think sort of thing works in Democratic debates though, nor would it work well in the General.

Well I guess awful candidates get suckered into it.

As much as I loathed Hillary, glad she didn’t do it n the debates.

Trump brought in the baby that survived the shooting because her parents died protecting it. If that doesn't deserve a giant smile and a thumbs up, I don't know what does.

What a giant prick.

EDIT: The baby was discharged and they brought him back for this.

From the pages of the most predictable things in the world, Epstein "committed suicide" in prison.

A lot of rich and powerful people are happier today.

I really hope the authorities obtained a ton of info from their raids.

"He shot himself in the back of the head five times. Obvious suicide."

Looks like "The Mooch" is not enjoying the Trump Show lately


Along with that I saw another article on Axios that about sums up how I feel Trump feels most diplomacy is done


Who doesn't enjoy the Canadian ambassador calling the White House to confirm that the "official" correspondence is just that and not a prank as they assumed.
