    break down

    Hello everybody,

    If you still haven't decided who will get your vote, fear not, because we've broken down the candidates on the issues that matter most to us.

    What does break down mean in this context? Does it mean that the candidates have been thoroughly "analyzed" on the hottest political issues?
