Much better mods tonight getting the candidates stumped on counter arguments based on the issues and not some rumor mill bs.

It shows how difficult some of the issues really are to tackle. Some things don't really have an ideal solution but they need to be addressed nonetheless.

Wow good question about Hilary! The Mod brought up a good point! Hilary certainly has the most experience in Washington out of anyone up there.

Still think Carly Fiorina makes some good points. We do need to know every dollar we are investing and should be willing to move the dollar to a better investment. Three page tax form is good. Cheaper health care for those that are dependent on their insurance is a great idea.

She makes up statistics though

Honestly in the beginning, the idea of Donald Trump winning Republican primaries made me shiver, since he has some pretty crazy ideas, and his history of suing everything that walks.

Now though, I sort of want him to win it, as Ben Carson is seriously messed up and should never be considered for presidency It's terrifying how close he is to leading in polls now.

If Washington is broken and the established ones are part of the corruption problem, that's a negative.

That lady pretty much told Rubio why people would trust him more than Hillary. Hillary has been all over Washington. She's a career politician who does anything to stay in power.

Debate drinking game!

Take a shot every time Trump says, "Win"

The survivors will live to pass their superior traits to their children.

Well that was quite the debate. Rand I thought was definitely the surprise of the night.

Overall, I thought Carson did really well. Trump did ok, he's usually consistently steady.

I also thought Cruz did really well. Rubio I thought had a weaker night, but he did fine considering.

Kasich, Carly, and Jeb were the losers of the night. ESPECIALLY Kasich.

Also the questions and mods did great, probably the best debate so far.

That is true, but the way she structured the question I thought was good Rubio responded well.

Agreed. So much better than the last. That one was a joke.

Right now, Jeb is probably backstage jumping in joy over the fact that he wasn't the worst this time. And he has Kasich to thank for that.


Overall, this was the best debate they've had so far. The questions were all about substance. The candidates were able to successfully get their points across and told us where they stand on major issues, as well as what their plans are. Like Neil said at the end, it wasn't about the moderators. It was about the candidates. Fox was sure to be VERY careful after the CNBC disaster.

I'm impressed nobody resorted to personal attacks. I guess Trump must've fired whoever was advising him in the past.

Definitely agreed. CNBC got their asses handed them tonight by Fox Business/Wall Street Journal. This debate actually focused on policy and business.

Funny. The only time John Kasich gets popular is when he's doing terrible.
