STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Sean, he has -- Mr. Trump has actually been on your program a number of times where the venue has been like a town hall, so that kind of experience can help him, right?
SEAN HANNITY: Yeah, I think so, and I can just tell you watching him up close in those moments, he's very comfortable in that environment. He seems to enjoy the interaction with other people. I think it gives him an opportunity to connect with people, and I did watch a little bit of last night, and he was connecting with people and thanking them for their question and moving on, and one of the things that maybe, I think with a lot of candidates, is they do over-prepare. And I thought Tim Kaine -- he did a really good job of memorizing his robotic lines, but it didn't work in the end. He came off as pretty unlikable. Constantly interrupting, and Governor Pence used that to his advantage by saying, "OK, you memorized your lines, but this is what matters to the American people," which I think is the perfect pivot point.
