538: What Went Down on Night One of the Democratic Debates

MICAH COHEN11:45 PM

That’s A Wrap

OK, folks, that’s it. What a night! If you missed it and want to relive all the glory chronologically, just start at the bottom of this live blog and scroll up. If you’re not inclined to do that, though, I’ve got two options for you. First, check back here tomorrow — we’re partnering with Morning Consult to measure how the debates change voters’ views of the race. Second, I asked the live blog team to sum up the night’s events in a newspapery headline. Here’s what they came up with:

Nate: “In Debate, Democrats Exchange Barbs and Ideas”

Julia: “Democrats Run Against Corporations, Trump, and Mitch McConnell”

Nathaniel: “10 Democrats Try To Cram Six Hours Of Talking Points Into Two”

Amelia: “Whatever Beto Was Born To Be In, It Wasn’t This Debate”

Meredith: “Wednesday’s Debate: No Stand Outs, But No Stumbles”

Geoffrey: “Democrats Get Substantive — And A Little Feisty In The First Debate”

Chad: “Hard To Chip Away At Biden’s Lead Without Him On Stage”

Seth: “No Knockouts But Lots Of Policy In Largely Civil, Substantive Debate”

Maggie: “Political Candidates Still Failing To Check Google Scholar Before Making Statements About How We Need To ‘Figure Out’ What To Do About A Problem”

Laura: “Lots Of Policy Agreement — And Not A Lot Of Trump — In The First Debate”

Dan: “Democratic Debate Night One: Heavy On Substance, Light On Trump”

Meena: “No One Mentioned Biden. Only 496 Days Until Election Day.”

2. The intro paragraph says they'll be posting polls reflecting results of the first debate.

 

Should be interesting.
