Hillary Clinton is the solid winner of the 1st debate by PPP

PPP’s post debate survey, sponsored by VoteVets Action Fund,
finds that voters nationally think Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the
debate, 51/40.
Perhaps most important for Clinton is that among young voters, who she has
under performed with, 63% think she won the debate to only 24% for Trump.
47% of voters in that age group said the debate tonight made them more likely to
vote for her, to only 10% who say it made them less likely to vote for her. For
Trump with that group on the other hand only 23% said the debate made them
more likely to vote for him to 39% who said it made them less likely to.
Clinton also won the debate by particularly wide margins with women (54/36)
and voters who are either African American or Latino (77/13). Among white voters the debate was basically a draw with Trump coming out ahead 47/45.
Clinton emerges from the debate with clear advantages over Trump on temperament, preparedness to be President, and whether she can be trusted with nuclear weapons:
By a 17 point margin, 55/38, voters say Clinton has the temperament to be President. On the other hand, by an 11 point margin, 42/53, voters say Trump does not have the temperament to be President. Among independents the gap is even wider- by a 56/36 spread they say Clinton has the temperament for the job, while by a 41/54 spread they say Trump does not.
By an 11 point margin, 52/41, voters say Clinton is prepared to be President. On the other hand, by a 10 point margin, 42/52, voters say Trump is not prepared to be President.
By a 21 point margin, 56/35, voters say they think Clinton can be trusted with nuclear weapons. On the other hand, by a 9 point margin, 42/51, voters say they think Trump can not be trusted with nuclear weapons.
