Who Won the Debate? Carly! By far. She really killed it. Rubio was also very good, they were the two best tonight. Cruz and Christie did well, improved their standings. Trump was very annoying and had way more time than anyone else, 17 minutes. Trump lost ground. Walker only had 7 minutes, but he was better than the first debate. Carson was lackluster. Bush was better than last time, he had a few good lines and was great when he said his brother “kept us safe”. Kasich didn’t do much to move the needle, nor did Huckabee and Paul. The biggest loser was Jake Tapper, by far. He was awful. He clearly wanted Trump to dominate the debate and did everything possible to make that happen. Terrible.
Feel free to disagree. Who do you think won?
