Last night, Trump was clearly the target of all the other candidates on stage. Despite being the easy target, Trump has come out of the debate strong: a new Drudge poll shows that Trump’s poll numbers have actually IMPROVED since his performance last night!
Drudge polled hundreds of thousands of conservatives, asking them who won the CNN debate.
Of the respondents, 58 percent said Trump won.
Carly Fiorina came in a distant second with 16 percent. In third place was Cruz with just 6 percent.
The remaining candidates received a marginal percentage of the vote. Ironically, Jeb Bush (once the clear front runner) was towards the bottom of the pack.
Who do you think won the debate last night? Sound off in the comments section and let us know!
