SYLHET :: Hillary Clinton has won the second presidential debate according to voters, the first opinion poll has found.
The CNN poll found 57 per cent of people feel Ms Clinton won the debate, compared to 34 per cent of voters who felt Donald Trump performed best.
A further poll by YouGov found 47 per cent of people polled favoured Ms Clinton while 42 per cent backed Mr Trump.
Among people who had previously been undecided about who they would be casting their vote for, Clinton also won narrowly by 44 per cent to 41 per cent.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was on Monday projected as the "clear winner" of the second US presidential debate but her Republican rival Donald Trump "exceeded expectations", a CNN poll said.
A CNN/ORC poll conducted after the September 27 showdown between the two presidential nominees in the first of the three debates had also shown Clinton as the clear winner, with nearly 62 per cent of voters supporting her as compared to Trump, who was deemed winner by only 27 per cent.
The results also track closely with watchers` pre-debate preference.
Fifty-eight per cent of debate watchers said they were supporting Clinton before the debate.
