Florida focus group: Clinton won debate



Eighteen of 20 members of a CNN focus group in Orlando, all undecided voters, say Hillary Clinton won Monday night's debate with Donald Trump.

"She was very well-prepared," said a woman. "Her attitude seemed to be more in the charismatic side, she took more control of the situation, so I felt that she owned this debate compared to what Donald Trump has done in the past. And he doesn't seem to be solid in what he -- his material. So I feel that this time around, she was -- she just pretty much had solid information compared to what she's had in the past."

A man thought Trump did better.

"Well, it's not that he won the debate, but he did what I expected him to do. And Hillary didn't answer any of the questions I have about her, any of the really things that I see as troubling as far as voting for her. Whereas -- I know what I know about Trump."
