Post-Democratic presidential debate analysis

The leading Democratic candidates for president finally faced off against one another this week. Here are some questions we’ll discuss:

  • Did Hillary Clinton maintain her front-runner status? Does her nomination seem inevitable again? Did the debate serve to stall her recently falling poll numbers or are they likely to accelerate their recent downward trend?
  • Is Bernie Sanders a viable challenger for the nomination? Is he really running to win, or is his real objective to spread an ideological message?
  • Did any of the other three candidates on the dais break through, or are they likely to remain as asterisks in this race?

Mike O’Neil and Mike Russell do a debate postmortem on this week’s Think Tank.
