Poll: After Debate, Women Think Less of Trump and Better of Clinton

Donald Trump has said, "I would be the best for women." But according to a new NBC News|SurveyMoney poll taken after the first presidential debate, a majority of women aren't convinced. 

Twenty-seven percent of likely women voters said the debate made them think worse of Trump. Meanwhile, nearly a third, or 30 percent, said their opinion of Clinton had improved, compared to 22 percent of men. Women were also far likelier to say Clinton won the debate, by a 10-point margin over men. 

"I'm undecided, but I'm leaning more towards Hillary than I ever have before because of the debate," said Joan Hume, a 71-year-old retiree in Fairfield, Ohio who said she voted for Trump in the Republican primary because she wanted to "see Washington shaken up." 

Hume added, "There's a side of him that's scary to me that I'm seeing more of. I thought maybe he would change when he got the nomination, but he's getting worse."
