It wasn't even close.
Mike Pence trounced Tim Kaine.
If Trump had given the performance in the first debate that Pence gave tonight, Trump would be leading in the polls instead of sinking.
Pence made the case against Hillary on Obamacare, foreign policy, law enforcement, immigration, the email server and a host of other issues, including her claim that half of Trump supporters are "deplorables."
