Hillary Clinton has won the final presidential debate, leading Trump by a 13-point margin according to a CNN/ORC poll of debate watchers. She with much ease crushed Donald Trump in the most operative series of debate performances in modern political history.
The debate soon turned into a platform where there were more of personal attacks than a discussion forum.
She called him a “puppet” of Russia, he called her “a nasty woman.” While Mr. Trump emerged as sharp, steady and witty in the very beginning of the debate, his refusal to say he would accept the results of the elections and his snaky answers on foreign policy led many commentators and critics to declare that Mrs. Clinton was the clear winner of the debate as after a point Trump made no sense.
According to the Polls, 52% who watched the faceoff thought Clinton did the best job, to the 39% that thought Trump did. That’s a close call margin than in the first two debates. After the first debate, 62% of those who watched said Clinton won, 27% Trump, followed by a 57% Clinton to 34% Trump margin for the town hall debate held October 9.
According to Nate Silver, “During the first presidential debate, Clinton led by 1.5 points. Before the second, she was up by 5.6 points. Before the third, she was winning by 7.1 points. And now, writing after the third debate — a debate in which Trump said he would keep the nation “in suspense” about whether there would be a peaceful transition of power, bragged about not apologizing to his wife, and called Clinton “such a nasty woman” — it’s clear that Trump did himself no favors. Early polls also suggest Clinton won”
As the debate went on, Mrs. Clinton kept finding chances to make Mr. Trump seem smaller and smaller, or at least more infantile. And according to many polls, Clinton comes out to the win in the debate trashing the hopes of Trump.
