Hillary Clinton may have seen a post-debate uptick over Donald Trump

by Ben Pena October 3, 2016, 1:00

The online survey, which gathered responses from more than 2000 people on Tuesday, found 56 per cent of American adults felt Clinton did a better job than Trump in the first of their three televised debates compared with 26 per cent who believed Trump did better.

Donald Trump shakes hands with Hillary Clinton at the conclusion of their debate.

Following their first debate Monday, Hillary Clinton has a 7-point lead over Donald Trump in New Hampshire according to a poll released Friday by WBUR.

"I had to put up with the anchor and fight the anchor all the time on everything I said", Trump said of the debate's moderator, Lester Holt, at a rally in Bedford, New Hampshire.

"You know, at the debate the other night one of my well-known supporters, Mark Cuban, was there in the front row", she told a crowd at an outdoor early voting event.

Younger voters overwhelmingly supported Clinton's primary challenger Sen.

Clinton has taken a 7-point lead against Trump in MI, with 42 percent of the vote to his 35 percent, according to a Detroit News/WDIV poll.

This one actually started off the opposite than it has most of the season. "I think about fourth quarter comebacks", Barrett said. Ohio State will put its undefeated record on the line with a home game against the Indiana Hoosiers in Columbus next Saturday.

The poll also broke down each candidate's support by geography, which showed Clinton with an advantage over Trump in the southeast portion of the state, where she leads 58% to 29%.

In a separate poll that included alternative party candidates, Mrs Clinton led the field by 4%.

Clinton has experienced a slight bump from her well-received performance.

An NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll found that 52 percent of respondents thought Clinton won, to 21 percent who thought that Trump came out ahead.

Votes surged in the presidential polls back in 1992 for Bill Clinton after the debate against George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot while Mitt Romney's domination in the debate against Barack Obama in 2012 also helped him gain more votes.

Among likely voters, 42% supported Mrs Clinton, 38% supported Mr Trump, 14% supported Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and 3% supported Jill Stein of the Green Party.

The map starts to look a lot safer for Clinton if she's up by 3 to 5 points instead.
