    Last Night's Debate

    Who watched? Who do you think did the best? The worst?

    I know a lot don't like him and he probably doesn't stand a chance, but I like Christie's approach at these debates.

    From what I read, Rand Paul did very well.

    It doesn't matter, but glad to hear he finally resonated last night.

    I liked Rand Paul.

    I loved the fact that Christie refused to attack others on stage and would turn any question regarding his opponents into an attack on Hillary instead.

    I have been following a lot of the GOP candidates on Twitter since the debates began because I was undecided. After each debate, I usually ended up "unfollowing" one or two. Glad to say, I'm down to following one even though I would probably support others if this one doesn't get the nomination.

    I enjoyed the moderators showing video and pinning down the candidates if they strayed too far from the question or if they tried to hem and haw their way through a contradiction.

    In terms of performance last night:

    1) Rubio
    2) Rand
    3) Bush
    4) Cruz
    5) Christie
    6) Kasich
    7) Carson

    Obviously just my personal opinion and not based on who I agree with, based on performance.

    Of all the Repub. candidates, I am least turned off by him(I never thought I'd say that!)

    UKM I'm holding out hope last night gives Rand the bump we've been waiting for.

    Don't hold out much. He might get a small bump, but it won't be much. He's a much better candidate than either Trump or Cruz or even Rubio in my opinion, but obviously Republican voters disagree with me.

    I hope so, but unfortunately, I think it's too little too late for him to be a real factor.

    See I hated that. We all know that all of them dislike Mrs. Clinton. What makes any of them different from the others? That's what I want to know.

    I don't blame him for not wanting to attack other members of his party, but turning debates among Republicans into a "Who hates Hillary the most" contest seems pointless.

    Christie was deemed the big loser of the debate last night by the couple articles I read for this exact reason.
