Despite Mike Pence’s strategy of rudely and condescendingly talking over Kamala Harris and the moderator tonight, Pence never did seem to get his muddled point across, whatever it might have been. If you came away from the debate concluding that Kamala won, it turns out you’re not alone.
The CNN instant poll of debate viewers shows that Kamala Harris definitively won, by a whopping 58% to 39% margin. In fact Kamala performed so well, her overall favorability went up seven points debate viewers. In other words, the audience didn’t just think Pence blew it – they concluded that Kamala Harris is the real deal.
