The conservative Drudge Report’s instant poll shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard(D-Hawaii) as the biggest winner of the first night of the Democratic presidential debates, with nearly 45 percent of the vote just after 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning.
The unscientific online poll shows Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) at a distant second with 11.2 percent, followed by Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) at 8.6 percent and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio with 7 percent.
At the bottom of the poll are former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) with less than 4 percent of the vote.
