CBS News Poll: Likely Voters Say HIllary Clinton Tops Trump In Final Debate 49% - 39%

Democrat Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of the third and final presidential debate last night according to viewers in 13 battleground states.

From The Hill:

Almost half, 49 percent, in the CBS News Battleground Tracker poll released Thursday morning said the Democratic nominee won the debate Wednesday night, compared to 39 percent who said Republican Donald Trump was the winner.

Twelve percent called it a tie.

Trump during the debate would not say if he would accept the results of the election, which he has called "rigged."

The CBS News poll found Trump supporters split on that issue heading into the debate: 33 percent said candidates should accept election results, 36 percent said they should not agree to such a pledge, and another third had no opinion.

Nearly all Clinton supporters said candidates should accept election results.

CBS News interviewed 934 likely voters who watched the debate in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The new poll has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
