Who won Saturday’s CBSN Republican debate in South Carolina: Updated poll results
A CBS News poll conducted immediately after the conclusion of the Republican debate in South Carolina last night suggests that Marco Rubio had won it comprehensively. Nonetheless while the CBS may have a â€˜robot boyâ€™ as the winner of the high voltage debate, other polls were not as impressed by the man who saw his stocks go down considerably by his bad debating style.
While the result of the poll conducted by the CBS might be taken seriously by many, it must be kept in mind that these were very few debate watchers invited by GfK’s Knowledge Panel who identified themselves as Republicans or independents.
Among those people as many as thirty-two percent people proclaimed Marco Rubio as the winner of the GOP debate last night on CBS News. As many as 24 percent said that Donald Trump was the winner while John Kasich got 19 percent support, Ted Cruz 12 percent and Jeb Bush a meager 5 percent.
While Marco Rubio may be the clear winner on the CBS News, other polls seem to have a completely different story. An online poll conducted by a leading newspaper suggested that online audience are still solidly behind Donald Trump. He won as much as 70 percent support from people who said that he was the winner of the debate last night.
It must be kept in mind that people who made up the audience during the debate were not Trump lovers. A report has this to say, â€œWhat’s up with the debate crowd? If your only exposure to the Republican presidential race was the crowd at Saturday night’s GOP debate, you’d think Trump was the most hated man in America. The business mogul turned politician was regularly booed and hissed throughout most of the debate. The thing is, that plays right into Trump’s message that he’s an outsider and that the audience is filled with political lackeys. It’s a good message for Trump and one that works well for him. And with each boo, you can see the foundation for a Trump independent run being establishedâ€.
