2016 Presidential Debate

As everyone was probably sitting in there living room Monday night, watching the presidential debate as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go at it!

USA Today reported:
“Twitter spokesman Nick Pacillio called it the “most tweeted debate ever,” though final numbers were not available. There were 10 million tweets during the first presidential debate in 2012, according to Twitter.”

Politico reported:
“Nearly 55 million people viewed debate-related live videos on Facebook, the social media said Tuesday morning.

After the debate Monday night, both Twitter and Facebook were getting repost about the debate as well as making comments related to the event. However Trump was the subject of conversation, 62% of the tweets and post were about directly and about him versus 38% were about Clinton.

Trump was the center of attention within the week he dominated in online interaction and conversation, but this doesn’t mean that people were shedding Trump in a positive light. Analysts says that Clinton dominated in the debate Monday night.

CNN reported that voters agreed that Clinton came out ahead. “Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of Monday night’s debate by 62% of voters who tuned in to watch, while just 27% said they thought Donald Trump has the better night, according to CNN/ORC Poll voters who watched the debate.

Both Clinton and Trump use social media as outreach to potential supporters, as they still continue to do that even after the debate.

With the outpouring of political expression on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media outlets Clinton’s team sent supporters an email asking them to “advocate on every online platform on the night she does head to head with Trump. -CNet reported

Even though Trump had a million more mentions then Clinton, both candidates tea were active and responsive online throughout the debate.

As this debate was interesting, a lot of people can agree that Trump should take some time to prepare for the next debate him and Hillary will have.
