There were two ways Donald could have debated. He could have stuck to facts, been respectful, and tried to be positive. As he did that Hillary would have out-grouped him, denigrated him, demeaned him, and made him look weak and stupid. As she did that, sans any opposition, she would have seen her amygdala relax with each unanswered attack. Her brain would have worked better. Her smile would have appeared more genuine. Her manner would have appeared relaxed and unstrained, which would have led the crowd to view everything she said as true. The crowd would have overwhelmingly seen Donald as weak, and Hillary as dominant and honest, and he would have lost.
Instead he amygdala hijacked her early on. Under the stress, her amygdala was overloaded and her cognitive ability deteriorated to the point she couldn’t even say the word “fact.” Her foundational facial expression was amazingly pained and angry. This made the smile she laid over it seem phony and forced. She became anxious and uneasy as she spoke, which people interpreted as stress due to dishonesty. As that happened, Donald demeaned her, humiliated her, and made her appear weak and ineffectual. Every criticism stuck twice as well because of her visibly unsettled state.
This left the debate between a dominant Donald and a weak, confused, dishonest, untrustworthy Hillary.
