According to a Survey USA poll of California voters last night only 13% of respondents watched the Republican Presidential debate. Among those respondents 30% thought Rudy Giuliani won the debate. The next closest candidate was Mitt Romney with 12%. This survey was not just of Republicans but all California voters who watched the debate.
We finished the our latest primary tracking polls yesterday, but before the Republican debate began. So our Republican poll numbers will not reflect any changes caused by the debate. But if only 13% of Californians watched, then I doubt the debate will have much impact on North Carolina Republican voters.
Check back to see the results on Monday.
