Poll: Biden won first presidential debate

Former Vice President Joe Biden was the winner of the first presidential debate, according to a CBS News poll conducted immediately after the televised standoff between the two candidates in November's election.

Forty-eight percent said they thought Biden won the debate, while 41% said they saw incumbent President Donald Trump as the winner, a ratio similar to those seen in national polls on who will win the election. Ten percent of viewers felt the pair was tied.

However, an overwhelming majority of 83% said they thought the tone of the first debate was negative as Biden and Trump sparred over healthcare, the Supreme Court, the coronavirus pandemic, and other issues.
