Now that the first Democratic debate has been conducted, CNN has released the results of its poll that show viewers felt Hillary Clinton had the best performance, but Bernie Sanders enjoyed the biggest change in support.

As CNN reports:

Clinton stands at 45% in the race for the Democratic nomination, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders behind her at 29%. Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering a run for presidency and did not participate in last week’s debate follows at 18%.


Compared with pre-debate polling, Sanders’ support is up five points since mid-September, but no other candidate showed significant change.

Overall, CNN finds that the Democratic leaders, Clinton, Sanders and Biden (should he enter), all beat Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner.
