The best analysis of the presidential debate from around the Web

28 Sep

 

Here’s some of the best analysis, reaction, polling and commentary on Monday night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump posted overnight:

  • Washington’s Post’s three-minute version of the debate, including a breakdown of NBC anchorman Lester Holt’s performance (rated by the news site as a “win”).
  • NPR not only supplies an entire transcript of the entire debate, but its national correspondents fact-check the statements and weigh in on points they make throughout.
  • CNN reports that in a post-debate poll, Clinton was thought to be the winner by 62 percent of voters, versus 27 percent who thought Trump had the better night. The poll is based on interviews with 521 registered voters who watched the debate and included both landline and cell phones, with a 4.5 percent margin of error.
  • Top takeaways from the first presidential debate, as written by the Wall Street Journal’s Aaron Zitner. Here’s one: “Mr. Trump bet that voters would see some of his more assertive business tactics as an example of how he would fight for them in office.” Check it out.
  • CNBC reports that Dow futures traded up last night by more than 100 points as Clinton “appeared to gain momentum” over Trump. Here, the network postedseveral of the most memorable clips from the debate here, including the “she doesn’t have the stamina” exchange.
