New polling highlights the tremendous gap between what the pundits on teevee thought about the debates and what the public thought about them. Now I don't think the teevee pundits necessarily have to be perfect reflections of public thought all of the time. I'd be find if Chuck Todd or whoever just told me what he thought about the debate. But that's not what they do. They try to imagine what the great unwashed masses thought about the debate and then explain that to us. And they basically got it wrong every time. Perhaps remedial pundit school? Some new pundits? Something?
