I figured the polling on this debate would be closer than before, but still give Hillary Clinton the win. I was sort of right. It was closer than the other two, but she still won by 13 points.1 That’s a fairly impressive blowout.

The CNN folks seemed to think that Trump’s late-debate dig at Clinton—”Such a nasty woman”—was what ultimately sunk him. I dunno. Maybe. There were plenty of other things that sunk him too, though, and just generally most Americans don’t want a president who’s ignorant, mendacious, mean, misogynistic, and unable to control his temper. I think that explains most of it.

1As you may recall, she won the first debate by 35 points, 62-27, and the second debate by 23 points, 57-34.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
