Whatever impact the third and final presidential debate of the 2016 election season may have still is to come, but the day after the event, Rasmussen had GOP candidate Donald Trump up by three points in its polling.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online White House Watch survey finds Trump with 43 percent support among Likely U.S. Voters to Clinton’s 40 percent,” the report said Thursday.

“Clinton held a seven-point lead at the beginning of last week just after the airing of an 11-year-old video showing Trump making graphic sexual remarks, but she began losing ground after the second presidential debate,” the report said.
“Among the 87 percent of voters who say they are now sure how they will vote, it’s Trump 48 percent, Clinton 46 percent. Four percent of these voters choose Johnson, two percent Stein. Among the voters who say they still could change their minds between now and election day, it’s Trump 36 percent, Clinton 30 percent, Johnson 34 percent and Stein 11 percent.”
