I will list who I think did well with voters. This does not indicate my personal preferences or who I liked the most during the debate.
I agree with this list. adding that Fiorina did well on the "Jr" debate. I think she helped herself get closer to a position somewhere in the new admin, maybe the new secretary of state or even a Vice President run .
I really liked what I heard out of Dr. Ben Carson. I'm looking for someone different. Some of the people on that dias came off so fake and so much of the usual B.S. that will continue if elected IMO.
Rand came off as a moron. Last night was not the time to come out swinging. He needed to tell people his vision and his message. He looked silly and very un sincere , almost like he was looking for a fight. Trump dusted him with one sentence. How does that help his cause? Very silly stragedy. Rand wont make it past the first round as this line up gets whittled down.
I really liked Rubio. So far that's the guy I'm listening to now and I have an ear over in the Carson camp. He's not ready for center stage but he can make a great Vice President runner as well . Cruz has potential , but he's a little too religious for my taste.
Trumps lead will fade over the next year. The smart ones will stay quiet and let him screw it up . Rand made himself look bad .
The very fact that the GOP , some of it anyway , feel so threatened by him has got me very interested. I still think he is a ego driven blowhard , but I am starting to ask myself......maybe that's what we need ? The complete anti politician? Someone with FU money and status that doesn't have a filter , to actually change the staus Quo? I tell you what , a lot of people look scared.
Kelly asked a few tough questions and I respect that. The problem I have she asked NO ONE else any tough questions so it came off as attacking and bias. Not cool. What are they afraid of? If Trumps as bad as they say , let him prove it. I think he will.
She came off as a Hot dyed blonde angry female. She was anything but professional.
