Poll: 52% thought Clinton won debate, 21% thought Trump did

The first face-off of the 2016 presidential election cycle broke debate viewership records and about three-quarters of respondents said they watched the debate live. Though voters agreed Clinton was the clear victor, a majority of voters overall said their opinions of either candidate did not change as a result of the debate.

Clinton, however, seemed to boost her image among her own party as a result of her performance—50 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaners said their opinion of her changed for the better as a result of Monday night’s debate.
