Bernie Sanders swept all of the focus groups and won on Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Last edited Wed Oct 14, 2015, 12:27 PM - Edit history (1)

Every type of 'poll', 'survey' or 'study' that I found on who won the debates returned Bernie Sanders as the undisputed winner of the debate. However, it appears that Hillary has big media in her back pocket since most of the "who won" editorials, written immediately after the debate, are trying to convince folks that Hillary won.

Preliminary Nelson ratings say that 11% of all American homes with TVs were tuned in. This debate was the highest rated Democratic debate in history. And 980,000 were livestreaming at one point — more than streamed the Republican debates. Therefore, a whole lot of people watched the debate and will be more influenced by the actual debate rather than the post-debate editorials.

18. I'm an "average" person

and I think Hillary won hands down. A lot of the early opinions polls like google and twitter are not accurate because enthusiastic Bernie supporters probably voted dozens of times. Kinda like the American Idol contest voting.
The real results won't really be known until we see the first poll number coming out of this.
One thing for sure though, this Democratic debate was so refreshing after watching the GOPricks slugging it out trying to prove who hates the most people.

The media also doesn't use scientific polling and the sample of pundits is small.
None of those pundits on cnn or msnbc are worried about money like the audience mostly is.

This is three years old but probably a pretty good snapshot

How Much Money Do The Highest-Paid News Anchors Make?
August 9, 2012 8:00 AM


It’s no secret that Matt Lauer takes home a boatload of money every year for his role on The Today Show, but how much? What about guys like Bill O’ Reilly and Scott Pelley, how much do they make? Thanks to The Daily Beast, now we know how much the highest-paid anchors make every year!
NBC’s Matt Lauer, $25 million for the “Today” show
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, $20 million for “The O’Reilly Factor”
Fox News’ Sean Hannity, $15 million for “Hannity”
NBC’s Brian Williams, $13 million for “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams”
ABC’s Diane Sawyer, $12 million for “World News with Diane Sawyer”
CNN’s Anderson Cooper, $11 million for “Anderson Cooper 360”
Fox News’ Shepard Smith, $10 million for “Fox Report” and “Studio B”
CBS’ Charlie Rose, $8 million for “CBS This Morning”
NBC’s Al Roker, $7 million for the “Today” show
Fox News’ Bret Baier, $7 million for “Special Report with Bret Baier”
ABC’s Robin Roberts, $6 million for “Good Morning America”
CNN’s Piers Morgan, $6 million for “Piers Morgan Tonight”
CBS’ Scott Pelley, $5 million for “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley”
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, $5 million for “Good Morning America”
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, $5 million for “Hardball with Chris Matthews”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, $4 million for “Morning Joe”
MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, $4 million for “The Ed Show”
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, $3 million for “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer”
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, $2 million for “Morning Joe”
CNN’s Erin Burnett, $2 million for “OutFront”
CBS’ Gayle King, $2 million for “CBS This Morning”
Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” crew, which average $2 million each
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, $2 million for the “Today” show


So we are seeing the opinion through "their" lens. I would rather take the gaggle outside of the news bureaus.

3. I agree.

At least with the assessment of Sanders as the winner, and the MSM backing Hillary.

I disagree with the quoted "woman in Bloomberg." I don't think Hillary was "Bitchy." I think she did decently.

I also think she has been paying close attention to Sanders, and adopting versions of his positions. When, in that first 2 minute intro, she started talking about "profit sharing," I almost expected her to suddenly claim to be a Democratic Socialist...except that, as a neo-liberal, she'd never claim socialism, and she did defend capitalism further in.

After all, the woman quoted was not the only person in that focus group. I understood what she was saying, and even she was uncomfortable with the word.

Overall, I'm thrilled to see American meeting Sanders, and liking what they saw and heard.

38. You're the first person to get this right

 

I'm a Bernre supporter but if I'm being objective, Hillary won the debate. She came across very well stylistically, she didn't have any flubs, and no one scored major points against her positions.

Whether some want to admnit it or not, that stuff matters. And, while I love Bernie, support him all the way, and ageee with his postions... lets face it, presentation and style aren't his strong suit.

That's why the media (and admittedly I agree) thinks she won the debate.

This is not a MSM bias effort to push Hillary... at least this time. The have good reason to believe she won the debate because she did a good job.


But I'm still voting for Sanders because he's right on the issues.

66. The bottom line is that the media voices ARE and represent the rich themselves...

 

... by being employed by the shrinking oligopoly that controls our CORPORATE media. And most of these personalities that are trying to say that Hillary won have a vested interest to protect their positions within the 1% class themselves. Now are the internet polls "scientific" and representing all Americans? Probably not. But they far more represent the opinions of the people in general than media personalities themselves who are trying to depict Hillary as "the winner".

She knew that Bernie would resonate with We The People and that wouldn't go along with the corporate narrative of Hillary being the 'presumptive' nominee. They blacked out Bernie up to now and will continue to play him down. They don't want Bernie because he threatens their 1%er status quo. They are afraid of Bernie.

And that my friends makes me more of a backer for Bernie than ever. In a different way he is resonating with the 1%ers - and they are scared of him and they don't like it.

Some claim the Internet says Sanders won while the MSM says Clinton won. That's how I was reading it this morning. At any rate, Clinton is still in the lead and she apparently did very well, which all adds up to full steam ahead for her.

Sounds like Sanders did very well, too, but at this point, for him, 'very well' isn't good enough.

But I am sensing that you don't favor a populist uprising. Maybe you are satisfied that 32,000,000 American children live in low income homes, 16 million of them live in poverty. The current establishment has brought us here. We need a change.

The truth takes a back seat to what sells. Hillary Clintons star power and the fact that she is hated by the republicans almost as much as they hate Obama because she is a woman makes for better "news" and ratings as the front runner. They will report things as it makes money, to hell with small shit like the truth.

31. Feel the Bern

 

I think Hillary did okay and some will think she won, because she seemed competent and polished. However if you consider the real situation Americans face, they want someone who is going to fight the rigged system of endless wars and politicians working for their sponsors and K Street. They want a chance to have a decent future. Hillary was not convincing, in that once elected she will not pivot to being another Obama or Bill Clinton, that largely works for global corporations, banksters, and the military industrial complex.

We can not address a single major issue, until we get the money out of Washington. Obama proved you can't work within a corrupt system and get anything done, except getting more of the same broken policies. Bernie seems to be the only one who will fight to reform the rigged system.

Global warming is the issue of the day. Bernie had the guts to say it. Hillary was lost in the being political correct and pretending it is the lone wolf terrorist. A proposition that give the military industrial complex over 60% of tax revenues, while the middle class goes extinct.

34. Sanders was great: Hillary considerably better

 

Last night's debate changed my primary vote FROM Sanders to Clinton. He was very, very good but Hillary was MUCH better. She appears to be as competent for the office as Obama and the other President Clinton.

Great debate that highlighted the difference between the Democrats and the Racist Obstructionist Party. I was very wary of Mrs. Clinton becoming President. Now I'm very excited at the prospect. She is indeed "a progressive who likes to get things done!"

EVERYONE I've talked with in my big Democratic circle of friends agreed that Clinton's performance sealed the deal for her.

cap to pay for it, and make Medicare available to all. HRC carefully avoided answering whether she would expand SS benefits, even tho asked more than once. She said something like, she would seek to help those on SS that needed it the most. Didn't mention the cap or Medicare of all.

Every indicator I've seen, indicates that Sen Sanders was far superior.

35. I believe Bernie won last night hands down

but the powers that be, the media, the establishment are saying it is Hillary. They are acting like all those polls and all those people including those that donated $1.3 million to Bernie last night are nothing but a freak accident.

The next debate is going to be Hillary at her best attacking Bernie for any and all she can because they are concerned about the amount of people for Bernie last night.

On MSM they are saying Bernie is too old, he is not for gun legislation, he is not electable, he doesn't look Presidential, etc.

The corporate agenda is to appoint Hillary (another royal Clinton again) to keep those who wish to control our government in the top position. As she said she was for Wall Street when Senator.

I believe the attack is going to get vicious towards Bernie.

As Bernie has said, it has to be a people's revolution, that millions of people must vote to make sure the billionaire class, the corporations and Wall Street do not get their way in this next election. The corporate/bank/Wall Street/Billionaires are working very hard to make sure Hillary is the winner so they can continue on the course that they are on, to stiff the middle class and the poor by continuing to control the people for power and greed.

There needs to be an enormous amount of voters for Bernie that stand up and say enough! That make it known that they will decide the election not the ptb. I hope it happens I really do. It's time for a change from establishment and royal family to truth and what used to be the American Way. But if we cannot become a revolution of people they will win again and the same that has been happening to the 99% will continue. Everyone needs to really feel the Bern because the Bern is the truth, justice and equality.

39. Yeah

the pundits seem all gushy about Hillary. Perhaps it would have been wise not to ask the pesky voters what they think.

A bit of a disconnect.

40. Where online did Hillary have strong support (stronger than Bernie)?

I mean, Facebook tends to have a much older demographic these days, and Bernie was even stronger on Facebook too.

I just don't get where Hillary's support is coming from.

Does it come from those Americans that just don't go online? I don't think that's a very large number of Americans.

I know she's doing well in official polling, but I don't even trust official polling methodologies anymore. They are polling from a more conservative demographic overall than the general electorate for a few reasons.

48. All online, highly skewed polls and reactions. How many inner city or poor or people in general...

...didn't have the resources to watch the debate or participate in those "polls"?

Many of them were probably more concerned with getting by day to day.
Many of them might have been out working their second jobs.
Many of them might not be able to afford cable television so didn't see the debate.
Many of them don't have access to the internet.

78. "Poor folk"? That's a rather demeaning characterization of the people I mentioned...

... and certainly not what I said, but you missed the point entirely.

The discussion was about online polls and how/why they're grossly inaccurate.

I pointed out one aspect of online polls that contributes to their inaccuracy - they're not open to a reasonable cross-section of the population.

Online polls also inhereantly are unable to be limited to Americans of voting age or limted to one vote per person.

You're free to draw whatever negative (and incorrect) assumptions about what I've said that you want.

Those same exact polls showed the American people saying Obama beating Hillary while pundits said Hillary won.
We know the rest of that story.

....from October 7th:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2015/10/07/woman_in_bloomberg_focus_group_hillary_clinton_comes_off_as_bitchy.html

And it was ONE woman in the focus group, not the consensus of the focus group.

79. Well this entire discussion is about viewers' reaction to the debate on October 13, but again...

...you post another link to a focus group that was conducted on October 7:

"October 7, 2015 — 6:00 AM EDT Updated on October 7, 2015 — 11:56 AM EDT"

I think maybe this belongs in a new thread? Thanks.
