    Use of evidence: 4.9 4.1
    Delivery skill: 4.7 4.5
    Coherence of arguments: 4.4 4.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.3 4.3
    Identification of key points: 4.4 4.1
    Comments: Great speeches - I would consider including your skill argument in your closing because it really helps make your point about the economy. You were a really passionate speaker - but you would increase your persuasion if you included more studies and statistics to back up your arguments.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Laura Aybar

    Reason for Decision:

    I voted Pro because of the conceded framework (focus on economic impacts) and the arguments that refugees increase jobs and economic activity. These points were supported with more, and better qualified evidence that was more persuasive to me.

    The social tension arguments were less important in this debate because of the framework. However, the pro wins that the social conflict mentioned is non-unique and exists now.

    The time issue wasn't a factor in my decision because of Laura's introductions and the leeway rule.
