Politico Forms Polling Partnership With Morning Consult

More polls!

Politico has joined forces with Morning Consult to launch a new polling partnership. Their polls, which debuted today, will run in Politico’s Playbook and its sites.

The first poll focused on the presidential debate and found (unsurprisingly) that Hillary Clinton won. About half of respondents (49 percent) said Clinton won, compared to just 26 percent for Donald Trump. The poll found that the debates are good for network viewership, as 72 percent of people said they watched the debate.

Debate moderator Lester Holt came away with a mostly favorable review, as 42 percent of people thought Holt was impartial during the debate.
