Gallup: Romney Debate Win Most Lopsided in History

Gallup: Romney Debate Win Most Lopsided in History


Mitt Romney bested President Barack Obama, by nearly every measure, in last week’s debate, and a new Gallup poll found Romney’s victory was the most lopsided presidential debate win in history. 

According to Gallup,  two in three Americans watched debate, and 72% of those Americans felt Romney won while only 20% felt Obama performed better. While 97 % of Republicans believed Romney won the debate, so did Democrats by a 10-point margin (49%-39%). Romney also overwhelmingly won independents (70%-19%). 

“Across all of the various debate-reaction polls Gallup has conducted, Romney’s 52-point win is the largest Gallup has measured,” Gallup stated. “The prior largest margin was 42 points for Bill Clinton over George H.W. Bush in the 1992 town hall debate.”
