CNN POLL: Biden Winner of Debate 53% to 39%
A CNN instant poll finds 53% of voters who watched the final presidential debate thought Joe Biden won, while 39% thought Donald Trump won.
All told though, the debate did not do much to move impressions of either candidate. Favorable views of Biden before the debate stood at 55%, they held steady at 56% in post-debate interviews. Likewise, Trump's numbers held steady, with 42% saying they had a favorable view of the President in interviews conducted before Thursday's debate and 41% saying the same afterward.
