3. He had nowhere to go but up.

 

I've been surprised that he didn't jump to 5-10% soon after he announced. Looks like this may be the break he's been looking for.

5. A general election disaster in waiting

 

his open-borders talk plays right into Trump's hands.

6. I enjoyed listening to him too.

 

Google has more hits on him because we don't know that much about him!

And that's a great place to search for facts.

9. It's easier to get larger increases in percentage terms when you are starting near zero...

 

That's no knock on Castro, just a comment on interpreting percent-based factoids.

I assume there were other people there who also started from a similar baseline who did not have the same effect. Good for him.

That said, a sitting US Senator like Warren or Booker probably starts the evening with a much higher search frequency in absolute terms, making a 4-digit percent increase in searches much more difficult to attain.

10. I'm not unhappy!

 

He's an amazing person. I'm thrilled he got some recognition!

Off to google him just to help. 🤣

13. i was very impressed with him,

 

probably more than any other candidate tonight.
Inslee and Booker as well, and Warren was as good as expected.

But yeah, I think all 3 of them might reasonably expect a bump in their numbers after this debate.

15. He did very well

 

Unfortunately, over the past several months, he has been really playing to the base, which will come back to bite him in the general.

I think he's been really playing to the base because his poll numbers were so low.

He was very composed on the debate stage and was concise.

16. Didn't care for his hit job on Beto

 

I think he views him as a long term adversary beyond 2020 (think Governor in '22 or Senate in '24). The last thing the Texas Democratic party needs is a wedge right now when it's showing signs of life again.

17. +1. Castro is like Gillibrand

 

Opportunistic with a mean backstabbing streak. He is insanely jealous of Beto - especially of Beto's popularity among Hispanics. There is a reason for his limited appeal in Texas.
