    (Or perhaps a good one, that actually leads tp the opposite conclusion)

    A witness statement can be used in rehearsing testimony, or to bulster or undermine a witness's testimony, but what actually matters is what the witness testifies to at trial.

    Here, what matters isn't necessarily what viewers thought of the debate, but what the debate means to them when they vote. And that meaning will be determined, in part, by media coverage of the debate and conversations about the debate with friends, family, and colleagues. Remember, the coverage of the debate has the potential to impact people who didn't actually watch it, and than undecided and persuadable voters tend to be low information voters who are more likely to have skipped the debate than partisan, high-information voters.
