Clinton Wins Round One

This article has been significantly expanded by Econintersect.

Last night, the first televised debate in the US presidential election took place in Hempstead, New York.

Moderated by NBC anchor Lester Holt, the back and forth between the two candidates certainly proved to be entertaining. While many post-debate polls have been conducted, the chart below takes a look at one by ORC for CNN. A majority 62 percent felt Clinton had come out on top of her rival Trump this time round. Of the 521 registered voters polled, 26% declared themselves to be Republican, 41% Democrat and 33% independent.

This chart belwo shows the result of a poll on the first televised presidential debate in the US election.

Econintersect note: According to Gallup, 43% of registered voters are independent, 31% Democrats and 26% Republicans. By that tally, Republicans were properly sampled in this poll while Democrats were overrepresented and independents under sampled. But, according to Pew, the poll underrepresented Republicans (Pew found 29%), independents were properly represented (33%) and Democrats were overrepresented (34%). Pew's results only total to 96%. Thus, it is possible that there is a sampling bias present of a few percent, and Clinton might have been as low as the mid-50s with Trump as high as the mid-30s.
