In response to DirtyWaterLover's comment:
I think he missed an opportunity to connect with undecided voters. He was snarky and brought up issues that Herald has been harping on for months. If the question of Warren's native american heritage hadn't already swayed you, it's not going to sway you.
I think he came across as being less likeable than he was before the debate.
Warren was good. She's a good debater, can think on her feet. Brown stumbled and seemed more concerned with hitting talking points that really have nothing to do with being a senator.
I was really surprised by Brown bringing up the native american thing right off the bat and spouting out the Traveler's nonsense in kind of a "oh yeah, well you represented Travelers in the Asbestos case that hurt people", which againis a lot of nonsense.
He went negative which reflects that he's down in the polls. Should be interesting if Warren goes negative as well.

I bet Brown wishes he could take a mulligan on the native american answer, it was a little on the snarky side. Warren succeeded here although she was boring and repetitively scripted. I think he was off his game a little because of his just in time 6;30 arrival at the debate. Compounded by the fact that he went to the garage to get his pick-up (image decison) instead of arriving by cab because he was late.
On Travellers he won points; she avoided a direct rebutal and just continued her talking point.
Warren was on her best behavior; but boy was she a phony, and if you watched the deabte the split screen view of her while Brown was talking was telling as she was one uncomfortable soul. Who appeared stronger could very well be determined by whether you watched the split screen or listened on the radio. In the famous JFK/Nixon debate those who watched it said JFK won while those who just listend said Nixon won.
