Donald Trump exceeded expectations, but Hillary Clinton won the second presidential debate, according to a CNN / ORC poll of debate watchers. The results showed a clear victory for Clinton, with 57% saying Clinton won, as opposed to 34% for Trump.
t's a strong showing for Clinton, but not as good as her performance at the first presidential debate, when 62% of debate watchers said she won.
The results Sunday also track closely with watchers' pre-debate preference. Fifty-eight percent of debate watchers said they were supporting Clinton before the debate.
Clinton narrowly won undecideds 44% to 41%

I agree that we should wait for more reliable polls before jumping to conclusions.
If they are willing to mislead with these polls, how can we trust their reporting on any polls?

So I have noticed that the main stream media and many on ATS are posting articles and links to polls that show that HIlllary won the debate last night quite convincingly. These polls are supposedly much better than the online polls that showed Trump winning, because bots can vote in them, and people can vote as many times as they want. I agree that these online polls are no good.
However, I was a little surprised to see that the scientific polls showed Trump lose that bad, because O thought he won quiet easily.

Both sides of the MSM distort polls heavily. What would be interesting to see is the average of an equal amount of left and right news organizations. That would probably give us the closest true numbers.
But Trump won, imo. For the sole reason that his campaign was hanging on a thread and he bounced back high from that debate.

*Anyone with moderate intelligence who watched the debate knows that he failed.
Maybe you don't know that.

Not saying I trust polls, but I can understand why people would think Hillary won. Not everybody gets Trumps rambling word salad with no specific answers about anything.
