“I don’t think we should conduct foreign policy in our bathrobe at 5 in the morning.”Amy Klobuchar
- Kamala Harris was one of the clear winners of the second debate. She made a bold move attacking the front-runners past rhetoric, and it paid off. She has seen a huge spike in the polls lately, taking support mostly away from Biden.
- Elizabeth Warren practically had the debate stage to herself in the first debate. She was able to use the spotlight on her and use it to her advantage unlike other front runners who I will mention later. As with Harris, Warren has also seen a spike in the polls mostly getting more support from the liberal wing of the party taking support away from Sanders.
- Pete Buttigieg walked into the debate with a mountain of turmoil. But he was able to get the upper hand and damper down the problems in South Bend. He needed to put this issue to bed and out of the media’s spotlight and he did for now
- Biden did not have a good month to say the least. He is seen as out of touch with the new Democratic Party. Having his past views on Busing and not being able to explain himself on the debate stage really hurt him
- Bernie Sanders who didn’t have that bad of a debate overall, but he still has lost support, mostly to Warren. Granted he still has a core of support who will never abandon him. He now faces a different challenge than 3 years ago were he didn’t have to worry about losing the liberal vote to Hillary Clinton instead he now has a lot more competitors to worry about some of which who are more liberal than him.
