Two days ago the OP reported the reverse. Thanks for proving that polls and elections are f ...
CNN embarrassed itself with its RIDICULOUS post-debate poll of 521 respondents. 62% vs 27% is simply IMPOSSIBLE, except if its pool of interviewees or respondents were biased against Trump to begin with, and indeed iit reportedly tarted with a pool that put Clinton ahead of Trump by 26% before the debate even begun.
This is what the Daily Mail of UK had to say:
"CNN/ORC's snap poll, gave Clinton the win with 62 per cent to Trump's 27.
It was the biggest, and fastest, exercise conducted by an opinion polling firm.
The poll of 521 registered voters who watched the debate was a sample which the network warned leaned more Democratic than the average - starting the night with Clinton ahead 26 per cent among the sample.
And while it handed the victory overwhelmingly to Clinton, it was more mixed on whether the debate will make a difference, with 47 per cent saying it would not affect their vote, 34 per cent saying it moved them towards Clinton - and 18 per cent towards Trump.
Online polls carried out afterwards gave a different outcome - handing the title to Trump.
Such polls are self-selecting, and more likely to pick up the views of those who vote, although CNN's study also reflected a similar bias.
The Drudge Report's poll showed Trump fared better with 81.5 per cent of the vote to Clinton's 18.5 while others, including Time, CBS New York and the Washington Times, also saw Trump win the vote."
THE OVERALL TRUTH IS THAT ON ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE U.S.A. AS A COUNTRY, ITS PATH TOWARD ECONOMIC GROWTH, INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT, JOB CREATION, DEFEATING TERRORISTS, AND EDUCATION AND CHILDCARE, TRUMP WON ON SUBSTANCE, BUT ON ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE VENALITY OF GOSSIP AND COSMETICS OF STYLE, CLINTON WON BY A MUDSLIDE.
