CNN flash poll shows Trump as clear winner of first presidential debate: ‘Stunning number’

A flash poll conducted by CNN following Thursday night's presidential debate showed former President Trump soundly defeating President Biden.

The CNN poll posted on air showed that 67% of debate watchers felt that Trump won the debate compared to 33% who believe Biden won the debate.

CNN's poll following the final 2020 presidential debate showed 53% of viewers felt Biden won compared to 39% who said Trump won.

The majority of users on social media seemingly agreed with the CNN poll including liberal pundits.

'This debate was a total and complete disaster for Biden,' former CNN commentator Chris Cilizza wrote on X. 

'He looked old. His answers trailed off repeatedly. He was hard to understand. He would stop in mid sentence and move on to something else. I NEVER thought he would be this bad. Stunning. Truly.'

'Stunning number from voters who witnessed his performance with their own eyes,' political commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin posted on X in response to the poll.

Biden's team pushed back on the narrative that he lost the debate including VP Kamala Harris, who told CNN, 'It was a slow start but a strong finish.'

'Joe, you did such a good job!' First Lady Jill Biden said to the president on a stage after the debate. 'You answered every question. You knew all the facts.'

Fox News Digital reached out to the Biden campaign for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
