  •  a hold isn't much like a tie (7+ / 0-)

    A hold is like a "partial save." Basically, for a hold, you do everything you would do for a save except finish the game (which, of course, Biden couldn't do). A hold keeps your team in position to win -- and may greatly increase its chances of winning -- although it doesn't actually put runs on the board.

    Not to apply Nate's metaphor too literally, but this debate wasn't so much about scoring points in the polls; it was about taking the bats away from the other team. Nobody should be thinking that Biden failed or fell short if the next poll doesn't show Obama up 7.

    Election protection: there's an app for that!
