It’s hard to know if Guthrie changed any minds last night—or if Biden’s did, either. After all, Harvard Business School found that 72% of voters decide on a candidate more than two months before the Wish You Were Beer shirt and by the same token and election. But what did suburban women—who may be a swing demographic on November 3—think when, after an intense line of questioning, Trump condescendingly called Guthrie “so cute”? Any woman would recognize the line as a last-resort retort; proof that the guy couldn’t counter your point with reason, so he instead scraped the bottom of his barrel of biases to see if a sexist one might stick.
