Bernie Sanders rocked Vegas and broke records at the debate Tuesday night.

His campaign reported that more than $1.3 million was raised in the first four hours after the debate began, noting that at the peak of the fundraising frenzy, there were 10.25 contributions per second.

The campaign reports:

"On CNN, which sponsored the debate, a majority in a post-debate focus group said Sanders was the victor. The Vermont senator was the most popular candidate among a group of young registered Democrats in a Fusion focus group. "Bernie was on fire the whole night," according to a 24-year-old named Chauncey who told Fusion he went into the debate undecided. And on Fox News, pollster Frank Luntz talked to Democratic voters in Florida who called him "strong" and "straightforward" and "powerful."

More than one hour after the debate ended, in a Time magazine online poll, 68 percent said Sanders won. Clinton was in second place with 16 percent.

A U.S. News & World Report poll had Sanders the clear victor with 84 percent of the vote. Seventy-four percent of Slate readers said Sanders won.

In the mainstream media, the headline on a Chicago Tribune editorial was: Bernie Sanders' night: Authenticity wins the Democratic debate.
