2020 Democratic candidates debate in Atlanta by 4 winners and 3 losers from the November Democratic debate Winner: Cory Booker. Loser: asylum seekers. By Dylan Matthews, Emily Stewart, Nicole Narea, German Lopez, Matthew Yglesias, and Dylan Scott

Some, though, won more than others. Here’s who ended the night up, and who ended up worse than they started. To read more go to the link below:
