11. The other 47% just want free stuff.

Romney was right.

4. I'm not sure what it means to win or lose a debate in this polarized climate

It isn't exactly like Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson where their differences were fairly nuanced. Someone who thinks one or the other of these characters is nothing less than the antichrist isn't going to do a 180 because of debate quips.

6. Debates are about pulling in the undecideds and energizing the base.

Trump did neither. That is what it means to lose a presidential debate.

13. No undecided is going to learn anything about these two they don't already know

 

Trump's shtick either works on you or it doesn't.

17. Well, independents definitely learned something about Trump, and it was not good.

As the article at the link notes, that same poll showed that 22% of independents had a worse opinion of Trump after the debate, as opposed to only 9% who had a better opinion of Trump. That is more than a 2 to 1 margin. Not good.

18. And lookie here: 9% of viewers polled said the debate changed their mind!

Nine (9%) per cent of the respondents to the Politico/Morning Consult poll said the debate changed their minds about whom to vote for. Nine per cent of the electorate is a lot. If we assume that two-thirds of these voters switched to Clinton and one-third switched to Trump, which would be in line with the finding that Clinton won the debate by a two-to-one margin among respondents, we could expect the polls to swing in her favor by three (3%) per cent.

9. 52 is a nice number

 

If Hillary Clinton gets 52 percent in November, it's more than likely she wins the White House

14. That 26%?

Those are just people who wanted Trump to come close to "winning" the debate, but are all sour grapes about the fact that he was abysmal, so when asked said, "Neither one." They are the same ones who know Hillary is 1,000 times better but refuse to vote for her. I heard one guy, who was introduced as a Republican strategist on NPR tonight say that he disliked Trump but just wouldn't vote rather than vote for a Democrat. Those people are just plain sore losers and don't really care about this country at all.
