Who Won Presidential Debate 2016? Experts Weigh In on Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump

The very first Presidential Debate aired on Monday (September 26), and lots of people are wondering…who won the contest: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?

Political experts and advisers have been weighing in on the big night. CNN reports that nearly two-thirds of voters believe that Secretary Clinton won the night.

“Voters who watched said Clinton expressed her views more clearly than Trump and had a better understanding of the issues by a margin of more than 2-to-1,” CNN added.

“The consensus that Donald Trump badly lost the first debate gelled overnight,” the Washington Post reports.

“In the end, the lawyerly preparations paid off for Mrs Clinton, as she controlled the evening with forensic precision. While Mr Trump had a strategy – and pursued it on occasion – he was often blown off course by the former secretary of state and torpedoed by his own sometimes badgering performance,” the BBC wrote.

“A Fox News online poll had Trump winning with 50 percent of respondents, Clinton at 35 percent and the other 15 percent declaring no one won,” Fox News reports.

The upcoming presidential debates will take place on Sunday (October 9) and Wednesday (October 19).

    Hillary’s speech was more scripted but lacked substance. She made no points whatsoever. Trump spoke less like a politician but actually addressed the issues in this country – inner city crime, illegal immigration/gangs, federal reserve manipulation of our economy, and putting an end to globalization and the complete sell out of our country through bad trade deals that Hillary supported. It may have not been his best performance yesterday, but he clearly will make a better president and bring true positive change to this country.

    No Trump was bumbling and stuttering and seemed completely unable to make a coherent thought (though he did make a few) without it being an unhinged one that was hard to follow. He really sucked it was like he had no public speaking experience at all. I not even a fan of Hillary either, however, I definitely agree with the political pundits that said Trump fell flat overall.

  • John Dow

    Actions speak louder than words and Clinton’s actions have done way too much damage beyond repair. She speaks like a typical politician who will say anything to get elected, but she acts like an enemy of the State and she has proved it many times.

  • jh7058622

    I’m sorry but the same can be said about Trump and at least Clinton has the experience necessary to at least know wtf she’s doing.

  • cutitout

    you are an idiot, Trump lost control of himself, 5 minutes into the debate, he dodged most of the key questions, apparantly has no clue what “temperment” means, and interrupted The moderator and Clinton in between lies that were proven long ago. As long as there are dummies like you, this country is in danger.

  • cutitout

    A Troll, going website to website commenting on sites he would never normally visit.

  • John Dow

    I guess it’s not a problem for you to name a few «damage beyond repair» things that Trump has done to this country? But i know that you can’t :)

    She is experienced only in corruption, crimes and making broken promises. She hasn’t done anything good for this country. She is preaching the mixture of communism and totalitarianism.

  • HG

    Agree no matter what she’s says she’s a liar and trump will win this election!! She has done shit for 30 years except supply arms to terrorists while lining her pockets and her I’m middle class shpeal was epic since she hasn’t spent a day with middle class people and has more corrupt money up her ass and only political fundraisers by elite celebs in Hamptons and Martha’s Vineyard , while trump went to poor areas where real people live RME!

  • HG

    Wrong the video came out this morning Lester and Clinton lied , trump was against Iraq war like he said . Also CNBC, variety, CBS, fox, Time , GMA, and fourteen others said trump won by a lot , CNN said Clinton won and we know it’s the Clinton criminal network lol.

  • HG

    Who hammers blackberries and had emails acid washed? Only a crook, her aids refused to testify and one didn’t show up , and we simple folk get warrents for unpaid parking tickets !

  • HG

    Hmm?cnbc, abc, GMA, Time, variety, msnbc, and fourteen others are all retards ?

  • HG

    Lmao at the terrorist supportèr!!!

  • Arrow 12

    Yes she has the experience to continue to destroy the U.S. with her lies. Yes she is a true politician. She is so crooked. I think we need someone different.

  • Arrow 12

    CNN is the only one that is right. The rest of them where Trump barely won by a few points like those mention are wrong.

    Yet the man that constantly preaches his patriotism doesn’t pay his taxes and even brags about it. He’s not a knight in shining armor that some of his followers paint him to be. Neither of these people are goid people but Clinton can at least not make America a playground for the rich and powerful.

  • jh7058622

    Haha typical Trump supporter response is typical…and unintelligible.

  • jh7058622

    No he lied too watched Tori Kelly that fact checked both. Don’t be niave and think he’s “honest Abe.” Don’t delude yourself.
