How do you tell who won the debates? First, watch them. Second, don’t listen to any commentary or “expert” opinions. Third, go to sleep. Fourth, the next morning, think of what stands out in your mind the most. Think of each candidate, and the first image that you associate with them. The memory that stnads out for me the most was Trump interrupting all the time, and saying “wrong”. When I think af Trump, I think back to him interacting with Hillary as equals, as a calm, controled persoN. When I think of Hillary, I think about that occasional look of contempt. Judging from these three criteria, I can say that Trump won the debate on a persuasion level.
