Trump leads post-debate online polls
Donald Trump was the resounding winner of Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate in Houston, according to two online surveys.
According to a Drudge Report survey that has attracted more than 120,000 votes, 63.8 percent said Trump won the debate, followed Ted Cruz, at 17.9 percent, Marco Rubio, at 12.8 percent, John Kasich, at 3.6 percent, and Ben Carson, at 2 percent.
A Time magazine online poll of 17,000 people found the billionaire businessman taking 71 percent, followed by Rubio, at 18 percent, Kasich, at 6 percent, Cruz, at 4 percent, and Carson, at 2 percent.
Trump has mopped up in most of the post-debate online polling this cycle.
The surveys aren’t scientific but can gauge online enthusiasm for the candidates.
