Post-Debate National Poll Shows Fiorina Tied for First with Trump

Fiorina Skyrockets in Post-Debate National Poll

Washington, D.C., September 17, 2015 – One America News Network, “OAN”, a credible source for 24/7 national and international news, announces its national post-debate poll taken immediately after Wednesday night’s GOP Debate at the Ronald Reagan Library. Carly Fiorina jumps to first place at 22 percent, tied with Donald Trump. OAN’s previous national poll, conducted on September 3-4, showed the former HP top executive in seventh place with 2.7%. Marco Rubio lands in the third spot with 15 percent.   The U.S. Senator from Florida ranked third in OAN’s early September poll with 12 percent, a three point gain for Rubio.   Rounding out the top five are Dr. Ben Carson at 12 percent followed by Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush tied at 6 percent.   Bush drops nearly half his early September support of 11.4 percent to a post-debate 6 percent.


Fiorina also had the highest showing with GOP national voters having a 78 percent more favorable opinion of the candidate post-debate. The less favorable percent came in at 13 percent with 10 percent unchanged. Thirty-three percent of GOP voters polled believed that Fiorina won the debate, the highest of any GOP Candidate.   Trump came in second with 21 percent.

According to Robert Herring, Sr., CEO of One America News Network, “One America News’ national post-debate poll shows it’s all Fiorina coming out of the second debate.   It shows that some of the lesser known candidates have tremendous upside as voters across the nation become more familiar with them. Senator Rubio also had a strong showing on Wednesday picking up 3 points since our previous national poll in early September.

The poll, conducted exclusively for One America News Network by Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, sampled a random survey of 1,337 registered Republican voters across the U.S. regarding the performance and opinions of the Republicans that took place in the second Republican Primary debate. The poll has a margin of error of ± 3%. The polls were conducted using IVR technology and weighted by gender.
