Democrats oversampled, poll contradicted by consensus that Trump won big
CNN was forced to rig its own poll yet again in order to claim that Hillary Clinton won last night’s debate, despite the overwhelming consensus that Donald Trump scored a clear victory.
A CNN/ORC poll of debate watchers released last night, which sampled just 537 respondents, found that 57% thought Clinton won the debate while 34% thought Trump was victorious.
However, despite not yet releasing its full methodology, CNN reported that 58% of the respondents were Democrats. This does not mean that 42% were Republicans, since the 42% figure also includes independents.
