Even conservative commentators are saying, if grudgingly, that Hillary Clinton was the clear winner in last night's TV debate. The question is: does it translate to votes? Nate Silver said a winning debate is usually worth a point or two in polling, but nothing much is usual about this year's race for president.

My favorite speculative analysis of the night was a piece saying Trump might not show up for the other scheduled debates. Unprepared, dishonest and rude is no way to go on a presidential debate stage.
