Donald Trump has reportedly expressed approval of Mike Pence’s debate performance, but whether he’s prepared to learn anything from it remains to be seen.
Pence’s debate performance should be the model for Trump. Will the top of the ticket follow the Indiana governor’s example?
At least one report suggests the answer could be no. CNBC’s John Harwood tweeted that an adviser to the Republican presidential nominee told him, “Pence won overall, but lost with Trump.”
Why? Because Trump “can’t stand to be upstaged.”
