NBC News Touts Own Post-Debate Poll on Clinton Bounce, but FiveThirtyEight says Be Cautious

NBC News’ online poll [1] conducted with SurveyMonkey claimed to show that Hillary Clinton won the debate, but even FiveThirtyEight (Nate Silver’s outfit) said to be cautious [2]. Silver wrote that Clinton should be up, but pointed out flaws with post-debate polling, such as some polls had a small sample size of respondents post-debate compared to pre-debate.
