CNN Poll: Debate Win Doesn't Help Hillary Clinton

CNN Poll: Debate Win Doesn't Help Hillary Clinton

By    |   Monday, 19 October 2015 08:18 AM

A new CNN/ORC poll shows that Hillary Clinton's strong debate performance last week hasn't boosted her standing in the race for the party's nomination.

Moreover, when matched against Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, she doesn't fare too well.

Clinton, Sanders and Biden all top Donald Trump, but Biden is the only one who holds a significant lead over Ben Carson, a more recent addition to the top of the Republican field.

According to the CNN/ORC poll:

  • Clinton stands at 45 percent in the race for the Democratic nomination.
  • Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders stands at 29 percent in the race for the Democratic nomination.
  • Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to announce a White House run, follows at 18 percent.
  • Virginia Sen. Jim Webb has 1 percent support.
  • And, Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley hold less than 1 percent support.
CNN reports that of all the candidates, Bernie Sanders is the only one whose support went up 5 percentage points since pre-debate polling in mid-September. Out of the 31 percent of registered Democrats who say they watched all or most of the Democratic Debate, 6-in-10 say Clinton did the best job, which almost doubles the 35 percent who thought Sanders had the best performance.

On the flip side:
  • 43 percent of those who watched said Chafee had the worst night.
  • 31 percent of those who watched said Webb had the worst night.
  • 12 percent of those who watched said O'Malley had the worst night.
Overall, the CNN/ORC poll shows that Democrats aren't much more satisfied with their field than they were in pre-debate polling. While the share "very satisfied" has risen from 26 percent to 33 percent, the share saying they are at least fairly satisfied has held steady at about 7-in-10, CNN reports.

When matched against the top candidates from the Republican field, Clinton, Sanders and Biden all top Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
  • Trump trails Clinton by 5 percent.
  • Trump trails Sanders by 9 percent.
  • And, Trump trails Biden by 10 percent.
But against Republican candidate Ben Carson, who is No. 2 in the polls, Clinton and Sanders both run about evenly with the former neurosurgeon:
  • Clinton has 47 percent compared to Carson's 48 percent.
  • Sanders has 46 percent compared to Carson's 48 percent.
  • Biden has 56 percent to Caron's 48 percent.
Despite Biden's significant lead over Carson, the poll notes that Democrats are less enamored with the vice president who is mulling over a run for presidency. Fifty three percent of registered Democrats said they wanted Biden to run a month ago, however, the new poll shows that's down to 47 percent.

The CNN/ORC International Poll was conducted by telephone October 14-17 among a random national sample of 1,028 adult Americans.

The results come from the 425 registered voters who say they are Democrats or independents and who lean toward the Democratic Party. The poll has a sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
