People who want to vote for the Republican but have doubts about Trump, and people who don't know how to decide.  The latter group are literally people who don't know how to think through political issues and make a choice.  I'm not sure whether these people actually vote at all, but I think fundamentally, they just don't know how to reason through the problem.  (My theory is based on articles involving undecideds, and their comments on the candidates).

And for this latter group, I think this article gives the most insight into how they perceived the debate:
I Muted Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton During the Debate. I Still Knew the Score.

It was a little shimmy of her shoulders — cheeky, insouciant — accompanied by a big, toothy grin. Her opponent smirked.

She looked as if she was having fun. He, not so much.

The exchange came as the first presidential debate was building toward its conclusion Monday night. What was it about?

I have no idea.

Per instructions from my editor, I was watching with the sound off. Alone. No checking my email, no talking to my wife, no social media. It was, for me, a silent debate.

The idea was simple: to test the theory that what presidential candidates — in this instance, Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump — say during debates is less important than what they look like while they’re saying it.
