2016 GOP Debate Poll Ipsos/Reuters Post-Debate Reactions

Washington, D.C. – Reuters and Ipsos launched a round of polling late on the evening of Aug 6, 2015, after the end of the Fox News Republican Debate. In the Reuters/Ipsos 2016 Republican Primary horse race, Donald Trump holds the lead in our post-debate polling (currently with 24% of Republicans, unchanged from pre-debate). Jeb Bush (down) and Carly Fiorina (up) show the most movement in our pre and post poll measures.
