Hillary Clinton won CNN's instant after the third and final presidential debate Wednesday, giving her a clean sweep of the three matchups.
The new poll results from late Wednesday night showed Clinton winning with 52 percent of debate watchers compared to 39 percent who thought Trump won the night.
Clinton's 13-point margin is the closest in CNN's polls of the three debates — she won with a 23-point margin during the second debate earlier this month and won the first debate in September by a 35-point margin in the same poll.
The debate served as the final cage-match for the presidential hopefuls with less than three weeks left before Election Day.
The candidates steered clear from personal attacks for the most part, a departure from the earlier debate. But Trump made the headlining comment of the night when he refused to promise to unilaterally abide by the results of the election.
