Clinton Overwhelmingly Wins First Debate Against Trump: Poll

Donald Trump may have started strongly in the first 20 minutes or so of the first presidential debate Monday night, but by the end of the 90-plus-minute talkfest, Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner, one news network’s poll found.

Clinton garnered 62 percent of viewers’ approval, according to a CNN poll of voters. Just 27 percent of viewers thought Trump won the debate.

But amid the personal attacks and nonstop interruptions, it appeared that neither candidate put their best foot forward.

While each took expected jabs at each other, issues such as Clinton’s email debacle and Trump’s perceived disconnect with the black community were virtually left by the wayside.

A somewhat skittish Trump was criticized for being baited by Clinton into exchanges about his taxes and business record, while proving lackluster when it came to policy discussions. Clinton came off to some as canned and overly rehearsed, without clearly projecting her vision for the presidency.

Despite his assertion that Clinton lacks the stamina to be president, Trump’s physical tics were noticeable as the night wore on, sniffling repeatedly and taking numerous sips from a glass of water

The next presidential debate takes place Oct. 9 in St. Louis.

Dorothy Rowley – Washington Informer Staff Writer

I knew I had to become a writer when at age nine I scribbled a note to my younger brother’s teacher saying I thought she was being too hard on him in class. Well, the teacher immediately contacted my mother, and with tears in her eyes, profusely apologized. Of course, my embarrassed mother dealt with me – but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my passion for words and writing. Nowadays, as a “semi-retiree,” I continue to work for the Washington Informer as a staff writer. Aside from that, I keep busy creating quirky videos for YouTube, participating in an actor’s guild and being part of my church’s praise dance team and adult choir. I’m a regular fixture at the gym, and I like to take long road trips that have included fun-filled treks to Miami, Florida and Jackson, Mississippi. I’m poised to take to the road again in early 2017, headed for New Orleans, Louisiana. This proud grandmother of two – who absolutely adores interior decorating – did her undergraduate studies at Virginia Union University and graduate work at Virginia State University.
