Bozell: Online Polls Defy Media Consensus, Indicate Trump Won Debate
Four of the most accurate polls in the 2012 presidential race were Internet polls
While both campaigns continue to litigate the outcome of the first Presidential debate, one result is clear: Donald Trump won the night on social media and online. Independent analysis from Facebook and Twitter as well as a survey of online polls confirms this point.

A survey of online polls confirms the Republican nominee’s advantage on social media. Results from publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal and Time to ForAmerica’s own online poll all confirm that Trump was the winner by a variety margins.
Regarding the debate, David Bozell, President of ForAmerica stated:
Despite claims by the main stream media and CNN’s “official” survey that Trump lost the debate, Americans across the country are saying otherwise. Donald Trump not only commanded the conversation among millions of Americans online who were watching and discussing the debate, he also dominated almost every online poll.  While the pundits may want to reject online polling, it simply can’t be ignored that four of the most accurate polls in the 2012 presidential race were Internet polls. These polls are a good, real-time, measure of voter enthusiasm, and Trump clearly has momentum on his side.”
As a digital politics expert, David Bozell is available to analyze the online response to the first Presidential debate. Through his management of one of the largest and most engaged political social media communities he is also available to provide unique insights into the potential implications that Trump’s social media victory last night could have for the general election.
