    Use of evidence: 4.7 2.5
    Delivery skill: 4.7 4.5
    Coherence of arguments: 5 4.5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5 5
    Identification of key points: 4.5 4.3
    Comments: You do a really nice job of incorporating evidence and explaining it clearly. I like the way that you organize your speeches very well, it was easy to follow. I am not a big fan of the time abuse argument. Ten seconds is not a very big overage, but if you want to make this a voter, I would suggest listing the violation and explaining the impacts. I love your speaking style and the way that you introduce your rebuttals with the analysis on top. It is smart to collapse her arguments in your rebuttal. I would have liked to see you put a little more offense on the flow in your first constructive.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Eesha Kodali

    Reason for Decision:

    I end up voting for the proposition in this round. I buy the argument that nuclear energy is better for developing nations to implement immediately, and more reliable overall. I think she warrants her arguments better with evidence, increasing her credibility in the round. Both debaters have a great delivery style and I enjoyed this debate.
