Twelve percent called it a tie.

Trump during the debate would not say if he would accept the results of the election, which he has called "rigged."

The CBS News poll found Trump supporters split on that issue heading into the debate: 33 percent said candidates should accept election results, 36 percent said they should not agree to such a pledge, and another third had no opinion.

Nearly all Clinton supporters said candidates should accept election results.

CBS News interviewed 934 likely voters who watched the debate in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The new poll has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
