Debate Poll: Hoo Boy

President Biden needed another stage of momentum to raise his approval and his vote nationally and in the battleground states. His approval went down 2 points and the deficit with Trump grew 8 points. And on who is better handling an issue, he lost 6 to 7 points of margin on inflation, strong, and makes me feel safe. In the past, the polls have almost always reflected the direction and patterns we identify here.

Donald Trump didn’t benefit on any measure, except the vote. ...

He took his biggest hit with Black voters and Hispanics, as well as third party voters. ... The biggest shifts against Biden started at 5 points and came on the border, common sense, getting higher wages and salaries, infrastructure, controlling inflation, being strong, and making me safer.

Emphasis mine. Politico took a lot of heat for including that line verbatim, but it's worth noting that it came in a quote from the pollster. As for the "biggest shifts" data, one may as well ask, "Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?" Those are all of the traditional top concerns for voters in a presidential election, and Biden just failed on all of them.
