Default Ridiculous CNN debate poll.

Just when you think CNN can't get any worse, they keep pushing this poll of who won the debate...

Clinton: 62%
Trump: 27%

Turns out, this poll had a grand total of 521 votes. Not 521k. 521 votes. They also admitted they polled way more democrats than republicans.



On the other hand, the CNBC poll has just under 560,000 votes. In that poll it's...

Trump:62%
Clinton: 38%

The time magazine poll has over 1,000,000 votes...

Trump: 59%
Clinton: 41%


CBS New York poll...

Trump: 65%
Clinton: 35%


CBS News poll...

Trump: 77%
Clinton: 23%


Slate Poll

Trump: 54%
Clinton: 45%

That 521 poll could be more accurate than a 10 million person poll if the sample is representative.

Their poll isn't representative. 26% of the people polled were republicans. Trump got 27% of the vote.

But you'll see 10,000 articles about how Clinton won the debate today.

Then those same headlines will be repeated over and over again once everyone else gets their marching orders.

I was able to vote on CNBC multiple times...last night Hill was winning that one


Anyway, there are far more kids on the internet than adults, I'm betting half those polled are under age

Yo 6, relax hombre...

Just wait for the national polls coming in the next few days...

If you truly believe Trump won (lol), the polls will reflect that.

HC will be up by 5% on average nationally by this weekend...

Book it

You're an uneducated spoiled little shit that doesn't know anything about life that thinks he knows everything. It's ok though... we've all been there.

For the record... Trump and Clinton would both cease operations if they cared about their country. They're both horrible self serving assholes.

OP is hurting BAD.
Start with a CNN poll of debate-watchers, which showed that 62 percent of voters thought Clinton won the debate compared to 27 percent for Trump — a 35-point margin. That’s the third-widest margin ever in a CNN or Gallup post-debate poll, which date back to 1984. The only more lopsided outcomes were the 1992 town hall debate between Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot — widely seen as a maestro performance by Clinton — and the first debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012, when the CNN poll showed a 42-point win for Romney and the horse-race polls moved in his favor in the following days.

...


But the CNN survey also historically correlates fairly well with movement in the post-election polls. Below, you’ll find a comparison between the perceived winner of the CNN/Gallup poll in debates since 1984, and how much the horse-race polls changed afterward. In 2012, for instance, Romney gained a net of 4.4 percentage points on Obama, although he eventually lost most of those gains. Bill Clinton, meanwhile, saw the polls swing by 4.1 points in his favor after the town hall debate of 1992.

Anyone with a functioning brain knows the Donald was bamboozled last night (including the OP who is just in his feelings right now). Dude looked like a crack addict during a police interrogation.
