Poll: Who came out on top in last night's final presidential debate?

The seven men and women who want to be president clashed for the final time last night, but who came out on top?

THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES went head-to-head for the last time on RTE’s The Frontline debate last night.

Widely-regarded as the best and most engaging debate so far, each of the candidates had plenty to say with frontrunner Seán Gallagher’s previous associations with Fianna Fáil coming under scrutiny.

The candidates are undertaking their penultimate day of canvassing today ahead of Thursday’s vote but how will their performance last night affect their vote?

Today, we’re asking who came out on top in last night’s presidential debate?

Poll Results:

Michael D Higgins (2208)
Martin McGuinness (1745)
David Norris (1367)
Dana Rosemary Scallon (696)
Don't know (607)
Seán Gallagher (458)
Gay Mitchell (179)
Mary Davis (138)
