Presidential Polls 2016: The latest poll numbers following the presidential debate

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks during the second presidential debate with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at Washington University in St. Louis Sunday Oct. 9 2016

The Sunday night debate, the second of three before the November 8 vote, was remarkable for the brutal nature of the exchanges between Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, and Clinton, his Democratic rival. The New York businessman called Clinton a "devil" who repeatedly lies, someone with tremendous hate in her heart.

The candidates shook hands at the end, following a disarming question from an audience member, who asked each candidate if they could think of one thing positive to say about the other. Trump complained at times about not being treated fairly.

FP's editorial board believes Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ― whom it labels "the worst major-party candidate for the job in US history" ― presents such a threat to global stability that the publication had an obligation to weigh in.

Donald Trump's support in the presidential race fell in a weekend survey after a recording surfaced of vulgar remarks he made in 2005.

On Monday, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway called Trump's comment over jailing Clinton "a quip".

His promise to prosecute her over the email scandal and private server perfectly captured his go-for-broke attitude.

"We have to worry about ISIS before we can get too much more involved", Trump said.

Trump's claim that he disagreed with the view of his vice presidential candidate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, on Syria and a possible military retaliation against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces drew the most reaction on the social media website. The previous record of 80.6 million had been set for the only debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan in 1980. Trump saying he was a gentleman and then his threat to jail Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton if elected president received the most tweets.

And an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday morning gave Clinton a double-digit lead over Trump nationally.

Pollster Frank Luntz said his focus group trended toward Trump after the debate.

On Monday, Donald Trump Jr. retweeted this message: "Was Martha Raddatz the worst moderator of all time?"

One of the most vulnerable Senate Republicans says he hasn't endorsed Donald Trump and called his crude, predatory comments about women "indefensible and appalling". "And it's fortunate I don't have to run for political office".
