Support For GOP Candidates Before And After The Debate
The other day I brought you a view on who Republican voters thought won or lost the recent GOP debate. Now a poll has been released showing support for each candidate before and after that debate. It is the NBC Poll (done online of 1,591 national Republican primary voters just before and just after the debate, with a margin of error of 3.4 points).
According to this survey, the candidates that did themselves the most good in the debate are Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Carly Fiorina (even though she was relegated to the second-tier candidate debate). Cruz extend his support by 7 points, Fiorina by 6 points, and Carson by 3 points. The biggest losers were Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, who each dropped by 3 points in support. All of the other candidates generally polled the same before and after the debate (including race leader Donald Trump).
It's still early, and there will be several more debates, but I thought these results were interesting.
