One other note: This does not mean growth is terrible. 2% is about what most economists consider to be the underlying pace of growth right now given long-term forces (aging pop., etc). But we certainly aren't seeing the big boost to growth that Trump promised.
Interesting pre-/post-debate polling from @FiveThirtyEight . Buttigieg and Klobuchar seem to have outperformed the most relative to their pre-debate standing. Of the "big three," Warren appears to have had the best night, though no dramatic shifts there.

This @EmilyPeck story on a women's leadership seminar held at EY last year is ... quite something.
Trump: If Hillary didn't want me to avoid taxes, she should have closed the loophole. Clinton: I literally did that.
Churchill: "We shall fight them on the beaches..." Trump: "WHY ARE YOU GIVING AWAY OUR STRATEGY???"
