"I won every poll from last nights Presidential Debate - except for the little watched @CNN poll," Trump tweeted.
He sent out another tweet a few hours later saying that he bested Clinton at the debate, as well as at NBC's "Commander-in-Chief Forum" earlier this month.
The scientific CNN presidential debate poll, which surveys a Democratic-leaning audience, showed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonPelosi on power in DC: 'You have to seize it' Cuba readies for life without Castro Chelsea Clinton: Pics of Trump getting vaccinated would help him 'claim credit' MORE as a decisive winner of the first contest. Of the CNN viewers who tuned in to watch the debate on Monday, 62 percent said that they thought Clinton was the winner, compared to 27 percent who said the same about Trump, the Republican presidential nominee. The poll found that viewers thought Clinton had a better grasp of the issues, was more authentic and expressed her views more clearly.
 
Trump earlier touted his wins in online polls from The Hill, CNBC, Variety and NJ.com, as well as the conservative-leaning Breitbart and Drudge Report.
 
An unscientific online poll with 1.5 million respondents from Time also found that Trump won the debate on Monday.
  
Smaller focus-group surveys conducted by CNN and CBS News found Clinton as a clear winner of the debate. In a focus group of undecided Pennsylvania voters organized by CBS News, only five said that Trump was victorious, as opposed to 16 who said the same about Clinton. Similarly, a focus group of undecided Floridians surveyed by CNN found that 18 out of 20 likely voters saw Clinton as the winner.
