In a poll taken immediately after last night’s presidential debate, pollers agreed that Trump won the debate as a whole.
How will this affect Biden going forward?
Now, this debate poll is bad news for Joe Biden.
By now, social media and news media are boiling over with analyses of the first presidential debate of 2020.
Democrats are claiming Trump amounted to little more than a bully while Republicans are screaming that Biden did not have a coherent answer for anything.
In all honesty, it does not appear that this debate will change anyone’s minds.
Both sides are too deeply entrenched in their ideas to even consider switching.
Thus, this debate was less for those who have decided and more for those who are still on the fence.
However, the frankly childish and mentally exhausting battle may have simply alienated the undecided voters even further.
Amidst all the yelling, name calling, mudslinging, and arguing, it is difficult to find much of value to take away from this first debate.
Trump dominated the conversation – as he does – interrupting Biden countless times.
Biden was barely able to answer questions coherently, much less be civil with Trump.
And while the media is pumping out their versions of the events, they have not touched on one aspect of the debate; what did the public think of it?
Several polls tell several different stories.
Directly after the debate ended, C-SPAN took a poll of over 230,000 who watched the event and asked them who they thought won.
The overwhelming response was that Trump was victorious.
They tweeted the results which were as follows: 69% said Trump won, 18.7% said Biden won, 9.5% said neither one, and 2.7% were unsure.
On the other hand, CNN reported that Biden won with 60% in his favor and 28% claiming Trump won.
Surprisingly, Telemundo also contributed a poll to the data pool.
In their findings, Trump won with 66% and only 24% for Biden.
What does this mean going forward?
For starters, it appears the public does not think Biden did well at all.
Most pollers reported that they thought Trump won the debate with Biden dragging behind.
This is not surprising considering Trump’s aggressive debating style.
Biden simply could not keep pace with him.
This does not bode well for the future of his campaign.
If the public continues to see his performance in these debates as poor and unsatisfactory, Biden’s numbers will continue to drop, possibly costing him the Presidency.
There is no doubt that the first Presidential debate went worse than expected.
Hopefully any future debates will involve less arguing and more constructive opinions on real world issues.
