Democrats’ heads are exploding as polling results roll in following the first of three 2020 presidential debates. President Trump resoundingly won the debate according to the C-Span poll, the Telemundo poll, and several others.
After Tuesday’s debate both Biden and Trump claimed victory. The CNN poll placed Biden in the winning category, but the CSpan and Telemundo instant polls reveal that President Trump won over the majority of those viewers. These two polls are important because they are not overtly pro-Trump. CSpan broadcasts government events, and Telemundo serves the Spanish-speaking community, a demographic the Democrats take for granted.
After Tuesday night’s raucous debate, moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, CSpan asked their viewers who won? A resounding 69% of them declared President Trump the winner, and only 18.7% voted for Biden.

Democrats believe they own the Hispanic vote and a recent WSJ/NBC/Telemundo poll seems to support that. According to that poll, Latino voters favor Biden over Trump by a margin of 62% to 26%.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a significant lead over President Trump among registered Latino voters, garnering 62% of support, compared with Mr. Trump’s 26%, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC/Telemundo poll.
So the Telemundo instant poll following this week’s debate must have come as a nasty shock to Biden strategists. 34% of Spanish-speaking viewers said Biden won the debate, but a whopping 66% of those surveyed said that President Trump was the winner.

The Telemundo post-debate instant poll is sending the Biden camp scrambling to reach out to Hispanic and Black communities. Former Democrat presidential candidate and billionaire Michael Bloomberg is spending millions of dollars on a door-knocking campaign, COVID-19 safety be damned.
Unsurprisingly, CNN viewers declared Biden the winner with 60% of the vote, while only 28% said that President Trump won. But this wouldn’t be the first time CNN viewers revealed that they live in an alternate universe that shouldn’t dictate life for the majority of Americans.
In 2016, after the first debate between Candidate Trump and Candidate Hillary Clinton, CNN viewers declared Hillary the victor with 62% of the vote, while only 27% voted for Trump. We all know how that worked out in the 2016 election.
