And the final Donald Trump 'manterruption' count is ...


Did Donald Trump win the second presidential debate on Sunday?

That's up for voters to decide. But there is one area where he trounced Hillary Clinton: interrupting his opponent.

Yes, if speaking over the other candidate was the aim of the debate, Trump won handilyVox put the score at 18-1, while FiveThirtyEight had a similar score (19-3) when it came to "fleeting interjections," which it defined as yelling while the other person was talking. (For the more dramatic full interruption — which required actually cutting the other person off and seizing the floor — Trump "won" 8-0.)
