Drudge conducted its post-debate sampling with an online survey of 240,063 respondents. Time reported 11,775 votes in its own version of the poll and CNBC did not report its number of respondents. All surveys were among only the sites' users and have unclear margins of error.

Trump repeatedly sparred with CNBC moderator John Harwood during his appearance in Boulder, Colo., Wednesday night.

He also mocked Kasich for having low national polling numbers and took credit for shortening the event’s length.

Trump has since boasted that he took first place during the heated clash at the University of Colorado.

“Thanks everyone — they all said I won the debate,” he tweeted afterwards Wednesday. “Even won the @CNBC poll!”
