A focus group of undecided voters gathered with pollster Frank Luntz on CBS News following the first presidential debate on Monday between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and while online polls heavily favored Trump and scientific polls highly favored Hillary as the winner, with Luntz’s group it wasn’t even close.
“Who had the biggest impact on your vote?” Luntz asked the group of undecided voters.
Only five raised their hand for Donald Trump, while 16 raised their hand for Hillary Clinton.
“So she comes out the clear winner,” Luntz said.
Some of the comments from group participants were telling, with several saying that Trump missed opportunities to hit Clinton because he allowed her to get him sidetracked.
One funny yet sad part was when Luntz mentioned that the group, which met at the National Constitution Center was surrounded by paintings of great founding fathers like James Madison and Alexander Hamilton.
“Do these candidates measure up?” Luntz asked.
“No!” they shouted in unison, with some even laughing at the question.
