Who won the Democratic debate 2016? Polls give Bernie Sanders advantage
Democratic presidential debate might not have been one-sided. Nonetheless one candidate who seems to have got the best response from viewers is none other than Bernie Sanders.
The Septuagenarian Sanders was without doubt very impressive, but to say that the debate was one-sided with Sanders the only hero seems a bit outstretched.
He really performed very well, but Hillary Clinton also showed some stamina and attacked her, though she failed to hurt him the way she would have liked to do.
Not just the poll numbers, even search results showed that during the whole two hours when the debate was being held last night, Bernie Sanders was the most-searched Democratic candidate on Google. Amazingly, this phenomenon was true across all the states across the USA.
If that was not enough Sanders was the most discussed candidate on the micro blogging site Twitter. When Republican presidential hopefuls were included, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz made their presence felt in terms of followers gained: 1. @BernieSanders 2. @RealDonaldTrump 3. @MartinOMalley 4. @HillaryClinton 5. @TedCruz
As for the most tweeted #DemDebate moments, there was the Sanders-Clinton back-and-forth on Wall Street, then Sanders saying “Climate change is real,” followed by the discussion about engaging young people in the election. 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.
In the meantime 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.
