Gallup Is The 6th Straight Poll Saying Clinton Won Debate
In the last couple of days, I have brought you five scientific polls -- all showing the voters who watched the debate thought Hillary Clinton was the definite winner. Now there is a sixth poll verifying that.
The Gallup Poll was done on September 27th and 28th of a random national sample of 1,020 debate watchers, with a 4 point margin of error. This poll had Clinton winning by a 34 point margin (61% to 27%). Even 28% of Republicans thought she won the debate (along with 92% of Democrats and 59% of Independents).
The poll viewers also thought Clinton understood the issues better (+36), appeared more presidential (+32), was more likable (+19), and was more inspiring (+12).
