Who won Democratic 2016 presidential debate? Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders vs Martin O’Malley
The Sunday’s Democratic 2016 presidential debate was the fiercest till now in the primary season. All the three Democratic hopefuls did their best to attack each other and put their best foot forward.
While the three including Martin O’Malley, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders came out with great performance, at the end there was to be a single winner. And it was Sanders.
As the crucial Iowa and New Hampshire primary voting approaches, the decibel level of the debate will also go up substantially. The three Democratic leaders in the fray including former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, left, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders did their best to outsmart each other, but the oldest of them all, 74-year old Bernie Sanders seem to have impressed the highest number of voters.
For the two hours the three fought ferociously in the prime-time debate broadcast live by NBC and simultaneously broadcast on Youtube from the Gaillard Center in Charleston, S.C.
If the online voting pattern is to be believed, Bernie Sanders is the clear winner of the debate. An online survey conducted immediately after the last nightâ€™s Democratic debate shows that Sen. Bernie Sandersâ€™ got as many as 14,975 votes compared to Hillary Clintonâ€™s only 880 and Marti Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s 378 votes. So in this particular survey Sanders was overwhelming choice of people. He received as much as 92.25% votes compared to just 5.42 percent of Clintonâ€™s votes.
It was important debate and all the important issues including guns, police violence, the drug epidemic, criminal justice reform and international issues came under discussion. Clinton hammered Sanders about his change in support for giving gun manufacturers immunity from legal prosecution, and said he voted to allow people to carry guns on Amtrak trains and at National Parks. But Sanders said Clinton was disingenuous about changes in his positions. The Democratic candidates also spent several minutes sparring over their plans to build upon or revise the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
