Early impressions are as follows:
Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke, and Elizabeth Warren come across as the best.
Expect that Castro, Buttigieg, Booker, and O’Rourke will rise in polls, and Warren will continue to gain on Joe Biden.
Biden is not doing as well as one would expect, and neither is Bernie Sanders.
Kamala Harris has likely not gained by this debate, and the same for Andrew Yang.
Amy Klobuchar might gain, but is not shining as much as this blogger thought she would.
Overall, the ABC debate is much better than the two earlier debates sponsored by MSNBC and CNN.
The candidates are avoiding attacking each other, and clearly, any one of the group would be far better than Donald Trump!
