The third and final debate of the 2016 presidential election cycle was held Wednesday night in Las Vegas, during which Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton traded barbs and made their final pitch to voters on national television.

We’re interested in seeing how Brick Township residents feel about the debate โ€“ and the election. In two poll questions below, we ask who you thought won the debate, and who you’re voting for Nov. 8. This is not a scientific poll, of course, but we’re hoping it will represent how the local vote will go in town.

    My most ardent prayer is that for the good of the country Hillary Clinton does NOT win. Imagine more of the same Obama tax and spend policies with limited growth that she would bring to the White House, not to mention the further direction that our country would take into her “progressive” agenda if she’s able to appoint judges to the Supreme Court.

    • Hydra Trump

      Ignore the math! A faith-based approach to election polling shows… TRUMP WINS!

      • Mac

        so you are saying the devil rules, even outside of NJ?

      • Practical

        You’re talking about Hillary obviously. Anyone who can defend a rapist of a 12 year old girl, support Planned Parenthood (the baby killing, body part selling “women’s health clinic”), ask “what difference does it make?” when four Americans were murdered in Bengazi, and support the murder of innocent babies in the womb up to nine months to my mind IS the devil incarnate.

      • Mac

        So you’re saying Hillary isn’t perfect, and you feel so strongly about it that you’ll try and elect an ego driven, clueless clown who can’t accept an ounce of personal criticism to keep peace in a war-torn world. Hillary may left a lot to be desired, for sure, but at least she offers hope there will be another national election in four more years.

      • Practical

        I agree with you that Trump has an ego problem, and I don’t particularly like him; however, the Democratic platform is so offensive to me that I can’t in good conscience vote for Hillary. It is an unfortunate fact that for so many years neither party has been able to run a candidate who would run this country for the sake of the people and not for the sake of their own benefit. Very sad commentary.

      • Hydra Trump

        THERE IS NO EGO PROBLEM.

      • J W

        Right, because if the Devil were real, surely he’d take the form of a 68 year old woman. You people are suffering from a strange form of mass-schizophrenia and this just about proves it.

      • Hydra Trump

        No. Dumb.

    • J W

      That’s all bunk. You people are idiots grasping for an excuse to vote for the traitorous Donald Trumpanzee. A vote against Hillary Clinton is an act of treason, plain and simple. You people hate her more than you love America and that is categorically disgusting. Shame on you for being un-American and unpatriotic.

      • Practical

        Are you joking – voting for Hillary is an act of treason? If anybody committed an act of treason it was she. Did you forget about the private email server that contained classified information? She should have been put in jail; however, the Clintons are above the law – with connections to the Justice Department. Anyone who falls for ALL her lies needs their head examined.

      • J W

        Again, totally bogus. If you want to go around claiming people ought to be put in jail, prove it. Even the FBI, a non-partisan civilian institution, said you people in the lynch mob were angry fools and wrong. Get over it. You just want to be angry and hateful. This country is going in a progressive direction whether you want it to or not, and all the kicking and screaming will do you no good. Quit acting like babies and making up crap to destroy the country. Grow a brain.

    With America only a decade away from the historical 250-year lifespan of former world republics, Americans are angry and upset as their lifetime elected leadership continues to drive us into bankruptcy while selling themselves to the highest bidder. Since there seems to be no one left in America who is capable of leading our country that wants to assume that responsibility, I’m thinking of pulling out all stops ten years early. While Hillary Clinton can reasonably carry the weight of America for four more years with her established international respect, Americans personally aren’t going to change and unite behind her to attempt to improve our neighborhoods and former way of life. As such, I’m not looking forward to ten more years on life support, so I’m seriously considering voting for whackjob Donald Trump, and his two mad dogs he has attached at his hips, Chris Christie and Rudy Guiliani, so that World War III can soon officially get underway and end all this pain and suffering that personal freedoms have caused us during the past 240 years. And if any of us survive world-wide nuclear meltdown, we can start the 250-years process all over again. Fun times to say the least, do’t you think? Ah yes, the circle of life over billions of years hasn’t changed much, if at all. Happy secret ballot voting folks, perhaps for the last time.

    • Hydra Trump

      tl;dr

      • Mac

        Belly laughing. I mean, who seriously takes advice from one of the voters involved in over 200 years of Ocean County voting results that have never, even once, produced an ounce of individual respect outside their fiefdoms, and have never produced an ounce of substance within their family-plan milking machines of the hopeless, desperate and/or brain-dead.

      “With America only a decade away from the historical 250-year lifespan of former world republics, Americans are angry and upset as their lifetime elected leadership continues to drive us into bankruptcy while selling themselves to the highest bidder.”

      Yes! Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Marie Antoinette said, “Let them eat cake” and Michele cavorted in Versace during one of the worst economies in modern history. I mean seriously the end is not far. GDP is down, increases in real income down, Jobs with benefits almost non-existent unless you participate in pay to play friends and family. She couldn’t find an American designer? ( She probably couldn’t as we make NOTHING here) I personally believe it a strong possibility that the Clinton s paid Trumpster to be a running mate. I could see it all starting as a joke that snowballed because perhaps no one expected a Brexit-like backlash to the status quo. Again, it’s is all a show – the hand is quicker than the eye, and he who has the fattest wallet makes the rules. A vote for one is a vote for the other IMHO. No difference at all. Again, A Vote for the Lesser Evil is still Evil.

  • J W

    Why am I not surprised that ignorant Bricktuckians would vote for a failed reality TV star and failed casino huckster with no qualifications to be President whatsoever. This man is so racist and uneducated the only responsible thing to do is vote for Hillary Clinton. I’m not giving a tax evading Putin stooge with homicidal delusions of nuclear holocaust the keys to the White House even if I did vote for Bernie in the primary. Voting for Trump is an un-American and unpatriotic act of treason- end of debate.

    • Practical

      FYI in case you haven’t heard…
      So here’s the REAL story if we can trust Wilileaks.
      Amb. Stevens was sent to Benghazi post haste in order to retrieve US made Stinger missiles supplied to Ansar al Sharia without Congressional oversight or permission. Hillary brokered the deal through Stevens and a private arms dealer named Marc Turi. Then some of the shoulder fired missiles ended up in Afghanistan used against our own military. It was July 25th, 2012 when a Chinook helicopter was taken down by one of our own Stingers, but the idiot Taliban didn’t arm the missile and the Chinook didn’t explode, but had to land anyway. An ordnance team recovered the serial number off the missile which led back to a cache of Stingers being kept in Qatar by the CIA. Obama and Hillary were now in full panic mode and Stevens was sent in to retrieve the rest of the Stingers. This was a “do-or-die” mission, which explains the stand down orders given to multiple commando teams. It was the State Dept, not the CIA that supplied them to our sworn enemies, because Petraeus wouldn’t supply these deadly weapons due to their potential use on commercial aircraft. Then, Obama threw Gen. Petraeus under the bus after he refused to testify that he OK’d the BS talking points about a spontaneous uprising due to a Youtube video. Obama and Hillary committed treason…and THIS is what the investigation is all about, why she had a private server, (in order to delete the digital evidence), and why Obama, two weeks after the attack, told the UN that the attack was because of a Youtube video, even though everyone knew it was not. Further…the Taliban knew that this administration aided and abetted the enemy without Congressional approval when Boehner created the Select Cmte, and the Taliban began pushing the Obama Administration for the release of 5 Taliban Generals. Bowe Bergdahl was just a pawn…everyone KNEW he was a traitor. So we have a traitor as POTUS that is not only corrupt, but compromised…and a woman that is a serial liar, perjured herself multiple times at the Hearing whom is running for POTUS. Only the Dems, with their hands out, palms up, will support her. Perhaps this is why no military aircraft was called inโ€ฆbecause the administration knew our enemies had Stingers.
      Send, and again and again and again until everyone reads this truth. Our nation depends on people getting the TRUTH, instead of the pack of lies being fed to us by Obama and Clinton.

      • Mac

        Whew!

      • J W

        Made up malarkey is all you have? This is why this country is so divided- you people are so desperate to have someone to hate that you invent your own little world. It’s like there’s a right wing version of the Matrix built by people like you that you have all just plugged into voluntarily after swallowing a bottle of red pills.

      • Practical

        I respectfully request that you get your head out of the sand and stop drinking the Democratic Kool-Aid. Hillary thinks we’re all idiots that she can lie, lie, lie to. (For the record, I don’t hate anyone.)

        The fact that the DNC paid people $1500 to make trouble at Trump rallies speaks volumes about the lengths they’ll go to to derail this election.

        I feel sorry for you and your lack of ability to see truth when it’s presented to you. Facts are facts – face reality. I love this country, and I fear that we’ve lost sight of the reason that our forefathers founded this nation – life (killing babies was never intended), liberty (freedom of religion to stand up for what you believe), and the pursuit of happiness (without government interference). Unfortunately, the Great Divider was Barack Obama, so if you want to put the blame on anyone, blame him (although I’m sure you probably worship at his feet too).

      • J W

        Made up nonsense. You people should write for Hollywood- it’s that crazy and bogus.

    • KaayC

      Trumpster is not failed by any means! Dont you worry about him. He could never have gotten away with his flagrant tax evasion if the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas had made the wealthy pay their share. I have two words THIRD PARTY.

      • J W

        You seem to be operating under the same delusion as Trumpanzee, namely that the United States is a dictatorship wherein a President is able to control the tax code by fiat. That isn’t how it works. Read the Constitution and you’ll see where the problem lies, and it is clearly with Congressional Republicans.

      • KaayC

        Where there is a will there is a way.

      • J W

        Dumb slogan for dumb people who are divorced from reality.

      • KaayC

        You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him think. Look to your mother country to see what years of corrupt policy have garnered it. You become disagreeable when anyone has a difference of opinion to what you deem infallible and omniscient. Resorting to name calling is so Trumpster like!

      • J W

        What mother country is that? Oh right, we were stolen from wherever they could take us and didn’t keep records- just took everything that they could like the good white thieves they were.

        The fact you think Presidents and Senators can rule by fiat (like Trump seems to think is the norm) tells me you don’t know what you’re talking about. And that is very worrying. This isn’t some dictatorship where laws are made unilaterally. Mbutu did that pretty effectively, but we all know how the world feels about him. You really want that for America after you just got done slandering all of Africa for doing it? Really? Educate yourself, look up cognitive dissonance and re-take high school civics.

      • KaayC

        I was referring to England, not Africa as I believe you said you were from UK. You are so quick to name call and declare everyone racist. I am a Buddhist. I believe in reincarnation. For all we know YOU could have been a white colonialist in a former life, and I could have been a slave. All I am saying is try not to always see the world through that disomorphic lens you seem to carry around. Always so argumentative. Sometimes agree to disagree. Everyone has the right to an opinion even if we don’t agree.

      • J W

        One of my grandmothers was from the Bahamas back when it was still a colony, but I wouldn’t consider that England. Good memory though.

      • Practical

        Typical Democrat – when all else fails start name calling. So sad that you believe you’re so intellectually superior to us Bricktuckians.

      • J W

        So far, you’ve demonstrated well that I am entirely correct. You’re brainwashed by Breitbart and Drudge. I bet you’d be talking about Aliens and Area 51 if that was their main headline today.

      • Practical

        There’s always Executive Order, which Obama seems to have used more than any other president to push his agenda.

      • J W

        The fact you think an Executive Order can levy taxes tells me you’re so inbred-stupid that you can’t read the Constitution and simply repeat idiotic things the right-wing partisan press forces into your pea brain. It’s a national tragedy that people as dim as you are allowed to vote.

    • Practical

      The guy who fueled the flames of racism was not other than Barack Obama – the president who sold the country on “change.” One question – are we better of now than when he took office? I’m not. I guess you are.

      • J W

        Oh yeah, it was totally normal before 2008 for people to drive around with nooses and racist lines about Kenyan muslims. It’s all Obama’s fault that white supremacist trash like you are racist. Yep, makes total sense. The only ways that this country is worse off is that idiots like you haven’t done the honorable thing and changed your ways. Instead, you double down and whine about how people won’t accept your racism and stupidity. Well, you’re going to end up with a permanent Democratic majority in the country now thanks to that- dumb, inbred, racist, uneducated whites are now a minority. Get used to saying Madame President, because one Hillary is done Michelle Obama will be President.

      • Practical

        This back and forth is a total waste of time for both of us; however, I’m leaving you with a link to get help in anger management. You apparently need it. https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/prof_results.php?city=Brick&spec=166

      • J W

        White people living in their little bubble- that’s you. Keep denying that your diseased far right ideology isn’t the problem. It is and you people aren’t going to get away with it any longer.

      • Practical

        You really do need that therapist website – for your own physical and mental health. I’m praying that you will find peace. God bless you.

      • KaayC

        Oh Yes! I believe it to be true. Michele O has already begun her campaign IMO. Lots of free air time with the media. Normally she would have never been this outspoken, but O is on his way out. This way she supports her former foe, garners points w. the Dems and sets up a nice segue for if Hillary’s health fails in four more years. I am wondering if she is not well.(Hillary). I think she might have Parkinsons. She also just bought another home in Chappequa that is one story so maybe she is prepping for old age. Idk for sure of course. Michele O definitely prepping IMO too.

  • KaayC

    Yep, that’s our choice a meglomaniac or a professional thief.. This is the Election of No Choice. A vote for the lesser of two evils IS evil. I do not believe I can support Trump.
    To Clinton supporters I urge you to Please Google the 22 Clinton scandals and get educated, because I know on the surface she appears to be a good candidate. Clinton was purportedly dismissed as an attorney for “unethical behavior” dating back to Watergate (and thats a long time ago) , Bloodgate, looting of the Whitehouse artifacts, selling admission to Whitehouse overnight stays, and lets not even talk about accepting Millions from Middle Eastern nations who deny human rights and women’s rights or Benghazi. This is a dog and pony show with a long history of corruption that no amount of plastic surgery, makeup and highlights can cover. She is an excellent actress that companion to slick Willy who gave us NAFTA.
    To answer the question: If you listen to Fox news – Trump was the victor.
    If you listen to ABC news -Clinton was the Victor.
    I have a hard time fathoming how anyone can support either of these candidates. I say we call the whole thing off and have a do over. We are in deep ish here with these two. We have no viable candidate.

    Oh and IMHO, maybe Nikki Menage should keep political remarks to herself and cover her junk. She isn’t young and cute anymore and that’s not such an attractive look.

    • Mac

      I agree, at least in spirit. Myself, I’m going with the established and professional thief who will stand her ground as opposed to the whiny Ross Perot impersonator who picks up his football and goes home every time someone insults him, or he believes someone insulted him.
