While each side claimed victory following the Topeka Senate debate Tuesday, the viewers have sided with Tiahrt claiming he made the strongest impression during the live debate.
Via an online poll conducted by KSNT out of Topeka, viewers were allowed to cast their vote for the candidate that made the strongest impression. Tiahrt received 56 percent of the vote while Moran tallied 40 percent, with 3 percent undecided.
The poll was conducted online and included only Topeka area viewers. The Tiahrt campaign was quick to run with the results, declaring their message victorious.
