Trump Dominates GOP Debate, According To Online Polls


According to a number of online surveys, Donald Trump was the winner of CNN's Republican debate on Feb. 25.

A Drudge Report survey that garnered over 120,00 votes found Trump winning with 63.8 percent of the vote, according to The Hill. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas came in second at 17.9 percent, with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida behind him at 12.8 percent.

Similarly, a Time Magazine poll found Trump winning with 71 percent of the vote.

At the debate, Trump and his fellow candidates clashed in several instances, with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida later calling him a "con artist."

"This is the most important government job on the planet," Rubio told CBS on Feb. 26, according to CNN. "And we're about to turn over the conservative movement to a person that has no ideas of any substance on the important issues.

"The nuclear codes of the United States -- to an erratic individual -- and the conservative movement -- to someone who has spent a career sticking it to working people."
