An NBC News analyst declared President Trump the winner of the first Democratic presidential debate of the 2020 election cycle.

Author and reporter Jonathan Allen expressed surprise that Trump emerged “largely unscathed” as the field of 10 candidates mostly avoided direct attacks on him.

Allen said the Democrats seemed more focused on positioning themselves furthest to the left to win over primary voters, rather than appealing to the swing voters that decided the 2016 election.

“For long stretches, it seemed, they completely forgot about the man who has been at the center of pretty much every discussion among Democrats for the last two-plus years — the man they’re competing to take on next year. The obvious reason: The motivation to beat each other was, on this night, more urgent than defeating Trump — a life-or-death moment for some of their campaigns. Trump was the chief beneficiary of that dynamic,” Allen wrote.

He noted that after the debate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., argued that ignoring Trump was intentional because “he’s an old show that people are getting tired of.”

Allen argued that by doing so, Democrats could allow Trump “to exploit their divisions and position himself for re-election” and “he was one step closer to that after Wednesday’s debate.”

The sentiment was shared by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, who said it was “a missed opportunity” for Democrats to not go after frontrunner Joe Biden or President Trump. Another MSNBC commentator, Donny Deutsch declared confidently after the debate that none of the 10 candidates on the stage could defeat Trump next year, including Warren.

Meantime, New York Post columnist John Podhoretz saw things similarly, taking particular issue with the candidates’ far-left push on immigration. He said the candidates “spent far more time talking about how they would help illegal immigrants than about how they would help the voters they most need to win over” and that will benefit Trump.

“If I were Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, I would be dancing a jig — because if this is the way the Democrats and the media want to discuss the economy and immigration, he is going to have a field day with the quotes they will generate from now until the election,” he wrote.

    Trump is a shoe in. The only thing that we need to watch for, is Democrat election fraud, which they will definitely try to perpetrate.

        But AFGus is correct …election fraud will be the Dems highest priority if they want to get elected.

          that’s the only way they can use even to make a small showing, the Democrats cant get enough illegals in to sing the vote

    What a stupid senseless waste of time and money for these idiots, Trump is going to win reelection by a landslide. To avoid being humiliated, the demonrats ought to give up now.

    I have figured out why Obama hasn’t given his support to Biden. I think he wants Kamala Harris as our next president. He will support her. Wait and see, if she is the one of the last two, he will be on her side.

    • Mary

      Yes, one of the anchors said tonight that the Obamas are backing Kamala Harris. America doesn’t need a sarcastic, racist, bitter woman who advanced her career on her knees with a married man and talks through her nose! She’s so vile.

        So true! She is an opportunistic tramp who will do and say anything to advance herself. Sounds like even her own dad thinks she’s a piece of shit. No way no how will this pig ever be president even with Obama’s backing. His opinion means nothing as he should have learned from last election.

    Sad they have no one that has a inkling of the issues. God help us from these morons. Same reason I have not voted for a liberal ever, they are plain stupid. I have seen people celebrating the communist Che Guevara, which proves ignorance is very high in liberals.

      What you see is what you get with Dems, uninformed Socialist Dreamers. In fact Much of Congress on both sides of the isle are uninformed, deaf to constituent socialist dreamers! Time to exercise our Constitutional right to an Article 5 Convention of States and show Congerss exactly WHO actually runs this Country, WE THE PEOPLE!

    They seem to be upset because a day passed and Trump didn’t get bashed 24/7 by Dems. It’s the primaries, Trump is not the target yet. They have to bash each other to get to the top tier. once the Primaries are over then the mud will be slung 24/7 on Trump all sorts of fabrications and made up stories will show up. 30 new women will claim they was sexually assaulted by him and their stories will be taken from law and order like the last one was.

    Both debates proved the bunch of bananas are out of touch with reality in my humble opinion. They have nothing concrete to bolster their odds of winning anything, not even the booby prize, whatever that may be….so many comments were plain stupid..biggest threat to America..Trump??
    Their all consuming idea to rid Americans of their current health insurance is their insurance they will not be elected. No one in their right mind will allow that to happen.
    The debates made it glaringly obvious not one of them has studied what the public wants and that will be their downfall.

    Yes, take away our health insurance, and give it to illegal immigrants. Why would anyone (except the illegals), vote for that?

    All these slugs care about is conning those who they think are the biggest crop of voters which makes me crack up because the dems are going to vote for a dem while republicans will vote for Trump. Sure you may get a few from each party who will defect to the other side for whatever crazy reasons but… all they really need to do is get the independents to vote for them… so I dont understand why they are fighting each other for the Alt-Left votes… lol They should be telling the “fencers” who can go either way why THEY are a better choice over Trump. And hopefully the Independent or Fencers, will tell them that open borders, taking more of their money away, removing the trump tax break (which IS NOT only for the wealthy as it helped a lot of middle class working folks) and undoing a lot of other Trump things is NOT what they want right now! I really do think Trump has 2020 in the bag unless the dems little tricks, games and cheats work like not allowing Trump to be on the ballots if he doesnt give up his tax returns or this BS about states giving their electoral votes to the person who wins the popular vote for the country and not just the state… or allowing illegals to vote or felons or 16 year olds…

      The 16 yo given voting rights is a real hoot, most can’t even setup and turn on a washing machine! Have you seen the comedic attempts at using a rotary phone? On second thought the Dems may need the 16 yo to vote in hopes of winning, idiots for idiots might work.

    Perhaps the “…old show that people are getting tired of.”, to which Pocahontas refers, is the sad and debilitating malaise known as Trump Derangement Syndrome with which the left is inflicted and persists in lying about and is even willing to become criminals in order to play out their sick fantasies! Good God, they’re willing to destroy the fabric and basic principles of the US in their attempts to “get something on him”!

    Just think,, IF all the liberal promises were to be kept , where do they think the money will come from .. who will be left , after we are ALL on welfare and food stamps in subsidized housing and not working because the government would take most of it to pay for their illegal friends,,Why work if someone else is paying us to play

    While I agree that these people are not a match for the President I also remember that these morons said the President couldn’t win in 2016. So their opinions are suspect to me always.

    Gee Whillikers? Are we actually seeing the Main Stream Smearedia actually pulling back from the Democrat Party Daily Talking Point(s) Memo?

    I Mean NBC which has as many family & otherwise close relationships with Top-Level Democrat Party functionaries; and Joe Scarborough who ever He represents & spouted out foul Balls for years appears to be trying to save whatever pays His Rice Bowl expenses.

Poor Biden an Warren just sunk there selves on the Illegals hands up.If you noticed Bidens hand kinda protested going up.He litteraly throwed his away in my veiw. An the rest Trump will totally eat for lunch.
