"She remains in the driver's seat to win this election," said Savercool.
Trump did well in the areas of immigration and the Supreme Court, while Clinton scored on women's issues and the need for the loser to acknowledge the will of the voters, he added. Clinton also deftly sidestepped questions on Bill Clinton's past, and potential pay-to-play conflicts involving the Clinton Foundation.
The third debate was also probably the best from the standpoint of learning more about the candidates' positions on issues. Both candidates had claims or statements that lacked credibility, said Savercool, such as Trump and the rewriting of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and Clinton's claims that her spending plans will not add to the federal debt.
"We thought the moderator did the best job of the three debates in keeping order, and keeping the candidates as focused on the questions as much as can be expected," Savercool said.
