CHRIS WALLACE: I think that, to a certain degree that this debate or, if I was going to say who has an easier task on Monday, I would say Donald Trump because a lot of the issues with Hillary Clinton in the Wall Street Journal poll were about her policies, what she did as secretary of state and the situation in the Middle East, what she did on the emails. You can't really change that. You can try to explain it, but you can't really change that. A lot of the doubts about Donald Trump are temperament, and if he shows a temperament that voters like, he can answer a lot of those doubts. So I'm not saying that he's going to succeed, I'm just saying that I think he has an easier path to, quote, success in a first debate, whether that's enough to turn the numbers away, we'll have to wait and see.
