According to This Poll

This poll does not and cannot reflect the views of all Americans. It only represents the views of people who watched the debate. The sample of debate-watchers in this poll were 37% Democratic and 33% Republican. That indicates that the sample of debate watchers is about five points more Democratic and about eight points more Republican than an average CNN poll of all Americans, for a small advantage for the Republicans in the sample of debate-watchers. The poll was conducted after the October 3rd presidential debate.
