National Poll Says Fiorina Easily WON The GOP Debate, But Trump Still #Winning…
Earlier we posted a poll from New Hampshire showing amazingly that Carly Fiorina had actually surpassed the Donald in that state, but there’s also a poll showing that she won the GOP debate at CNN hands down.
From Morning Consult:
Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina won Wednesday’s second Republican presidential debate, according to voters who watched the Simi Valley showdown polled by Morning Consult.
It was a performance that vaulted Fiorina into the top tier of a crowded field. A plurality of 29 percent of registered voters who watched the debate said Fiorina won, just higher than the 24 percent who said real estate mogul Donald Trump came out on top. Seven percent said retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson won the debate, while 6 percent each chose former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Trump continues to lead the Republican primary field. Thirty-six percent of registered voters who watched the debate said they would choose Trump, compared with 12 percent for Carson and 10 percent for Fiorina. Rubio placed fourth, at 9 percent, followed by 7 percent for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and 6 percent for Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).
Is this the beginning of the end for el Trumpo, or just a short boomlet for Carly the Trump-slayer? No doubt we’ll see more polls soon and we will report them ALL!!! Or most of them. Whatever.
