CNN's undecided voters reacted strongly to just 1 moment in the VP debate. It wasn't the Pence fly.
CNN's quick poll after Wednesday's Vice-Presidential debate found Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) Won the showdown with no problems. 59 percent chose her as the winner, versus 38 percent who named Vice President Mike Pence. But it was a 4-4 tie at CNN's undecided voter guard party in Arizona - although the only two entrants who said there was a clear winner believed Harris had won.
Voters responded to the debate with a dial, and there really was only one moment the dial went up, said CNN's Sara Sidner, and it was when Harris criticized the Trump administration for being COVID-19 was dishonest. CNN showed the moment and the lines, but when Sidner asked some attendees to explain why they had reacted this way in real time, their responses didn't really track.
Sidner didn't specifically ask how Harris was doing, but was given a mixed, mostly negative, bag of one-word answers for Pence's performance. There were three positive responses - twice "polished" and "confident" - and many more negative responses: "dodgy," "evasive," "persistent," "insincere," "calculated" and "overtime" - he kept stealing hers Time. "An undecided voter went into the middle and called Pence" consistently because there was nothing new, no surprises. "
