Our audience gives Clinton a round of applause when she says she prepared to be president.

Brittney Welch Brittney Welch September 26, 201610:08 pm

Our audience has now voted Clinton as the winner of round three.
They believe Trump was stronger at the beginning of the debate, and that now Clinton is taking control.
So far the vote stands:

Round 1: Trump–> was originally Clinton but they changed their minds
Round 2: Clinton

Round 3: Clinton
