Every inch of this ground is contested, Hellersorr. This subject was a battlefield before the book. It is a battlefield after the book. Take a poll of Shakespeare scholars and the de Vere theory would lose--as it already has--in a monumental rout, "slam dunks" notwithstanding. More "slam dunks" came out in the years since the book was published, some of these on the opposite end of the court. Earlier, Nietzsche could not stay out of the debate. Neither could Freud. Neither could Jung. Neither could Mark Twain. And now there is a massive industry devoted to "slam dunking" from opposite directions.
In all of this, I see only one real slam dunk: Anderson is not a "lefty." No self-respecting "lefty" could possibly go weak at the knees listening to the "compelling" words of Pete Buttigieg.
