Online Polls Show Donald Trump Won First Presidential Debate

Online polls from a variety of news sites show Donald Trump won last night's debate with Hillary Clinton -- despite Lester Holt asking Trump multiple negative questions while asking Clinton zero.



TIME Magazine:

Fortune Magazine:

Fortune had a followup question asking if the debate changed anyone's mind, 13% said it did while 7% said they're still undecided.

Even #NeverTrumpers noted how Lester Holt's questions were entirely rigged in Hillary's favor:

Heat Street pointed out the discrepancy, saying "Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt":
The game of two-on-one saw Holt ask no questions about:

- Hillary’s emails
- Benghazi
- The Clinton Foundation

While ignoring these issues, Holt grilled Trump on stop-and-frisk, the birther story, his comments about women, his many bankruptcies, why he hasn’t released his tax returns — and a host of other issues the media sees as unfriendly to the Republican candidate.

Holt also repeatedly attempted to “fact check” on some of Trump’s positions, such as his claim to have opposed the Iraq War from the beginning. Holt interrupted Trump several times to interject, but rarely succeeded (and may have come across as weak and impotent).
The predictions of the American people that the debate moderators would overwhelmingly favor Hillary over Trump were shown to be true, nonetheless no one seems to care anymore what the media has to say.
