Now that the third Democratic presidential debate is over, pundits and politicos will be gabbing about what it all means for each candidate’s campaign. Who triumphed? Who floundered? Who will ride the debate to electoral glory, and who is fated to fizzle? But TV talking heads won’t decide this election. The American people will. And all of them read Slate. So we’re turning to you, Slate readers: Who won?
