While the pundits continue to spar over who won the first presidential debate, the online polls are near-unanimous in declaring Donald Trump Monday’s winner.
As Trump acknowledged in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon, polls from around the internet–including those from Time, Fortune, and the Drudge Report–show that the American people believe he had the stronger debate performance:

The polls, although unscientific, suggest that pundits claiming that Monday’s debate was a one sided affair may be out of touch with the American people.
Only one significant poll, CNN, had Clinton running ahead of Trump.
Here’s the rundown of the online polls:
Time: Trump 55, Clinton 45
Fortune: Trump 53, Clinton 47
N.J.com (New Jersey): Trump 57.5, Clinton 37.78
CNBC: Trump 68, Clinton 32
WCPO Cincinnati: Trump 57, Clinton 37
Variety: Trump 58.12, Clinton 41.88
Slate: Trump 55.18, Clinton 44.82
WKRN Nashville: Trump 64.58, Clinton 35.42
Las Vegas Sun: Trump 82, Clinton 18
Fox5 San Diego: Trump 61.45, Clinton 33.69

If you go to the Daily Mail, you can see that the list goes on and on.
