Snap polls suggest Clinton wins first debate against Trump

Global BC interviewed Paul Quirk, the Phil Lind Chair in U.S. Politics and Representation at UBC, for a breakdown of the U.S. presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Quirk said both the Republican and Democratic parties will likely view the debate as a win for themselves, but practice was the key.

“It was clear that preparation obviously paid [off],” Quirk told Global News. “[Clinton] was able to make points in a much more organized and effective way…Trump appeared to be repetitive and rambling.”
