The Munk Debates has issued a correction stating that a "technical error" inflated the influence of Steve Bannon during a controversial Toronto debate Friday night.

The audience was asked beforehand if they favoured the idea that populism was the way of the future. Just 28 per cent of the audience supported the idea before the debate, which saw Bannon and conservative commentator David Frum spar over populism in politics. The audience was polled again at the end of the debate to see if their opinions were swayed.

The numbers initially suggested that Bannon had easily won over most of the audience, but officials issued a correction online Saturday morning stating opinions were unchanged.
