Did Donald Trump deconstruct Hillary Clinton with marginal voters?

Overall, as I wrote on debate night, I think Clinton won the debate. Perhaps that reflects a professional writer's prejudice in favor of people who speak, more or less, in whole sentences and paragraphs, and prejudice against those who engage in free-form, parenthetical-filled, free-association discourse. Or perhaps a former political consultant's bias in favor of candidates who are well prepared. But on reflection and looking over the transcript, I think Trump did a fairly good job of discouraging marginal voters from voting for Clinton, more than I appreciated as I watched the debate.
