GOP DEBATE #6, WHO WON, WHO LOST, AND WHO IS NEXT TO GO
With the possible exception of Rand Paul who “took his ball and went home crying,” many observers where happy that Thursday night’s GOP debate in South Carolina was limited to seven candidates. With seven each candidate would have more time and voters would have the opportunity to learn their policy differences.
The Fox Business Network debate did not turn out as promised. It wasn’t a seven person debate, for the most part it was two, two person debates; Trump vs. Cruz, Christie, vs. Rubio. And the presence second two was not as memorable as the first two.
Even the time each candidate spoke made it seem like two contests of two. Cruz and Trump had approximately the same amount of debate time (Cruz 17.52, Trump 17.12), as did Christie (14:25) and Rubio (14:19)
Sure the other three candidates were there, and some even had their moments but most of the evening was a battle between the New York billionaire and the Texas Senator.
According to Frank Luntz’s focus group, Ted Cruz was the big winner, according to this observer the victory was not that clear. For any observer who thought that this would be the debate where Donald Trump finally hit the wall and crashed they were horribly disappointed. Those who thought every candidate would spend their time pummeling Ted Cruz into oblivion they too went to bed on Thursday with their expectations unrealized.
