 You can read my contemporaneous notes on the first debate here. I have very little to add. except to say that the 60% edge Biden got in the CNN poll is not super-meaningful, at least as regards the event itself; it seems close to where the voters are, debate or no debate. People who support Trump will support any loathsome thing he does, while people who support Biden are basically people who are sick of Trump, so any cavils about Biden's watery responses would be overridden by an existential desire to see the madman deposed and honor restored. Things have gotten weird, but America, not so much. Or so we hope.
