Debate - Public Domain

In the estimation of many reporters who cover the political and media beats, Fox News was the winner of the first GOP debate. And with the just-released ratings we can confirm that.

A whopping 24 million watched the debate from 9 p.m. ET to just past 11 p.m. ET. FNC drew 7.9 million in the A25-54 demo.

This is now the highest non-sports cable program of all time, the highest-rated cable news program of all time, and Fox News’s most-watched program ever.

  1. I watched part of the debate. Who paid them? It was an obvious attempt to discredit Donald Trump with questions that no one else was asked. The questions were loaded. Any person with sales training would know about loaded questions.
    Of course no one would commit this soon to a candidate especially with such a variety of candidates. Yet everyone but Trump was willing.
    I say it was set up and an ambush.
    It isn’t going to be that easy to get rid of Donald Trump.
    But he did make a remark I find interesting. Those politicians are bought and paid for.

  2. I think his remarks about the moderator were totally inappropriate. He needs to apologize for those remarks said in anger.
    The only person that will get Donald Trump not elected is Donald Trump. That makes him a loser.
    The question in my head is that he was being set up. I think there is ample evidence of that in the recording of the debate.
    If Michael is right about September, it will be a whole new ball game in October.
    We do need a man in the White House that can resolve a budget and keep things working.
    The question being who is going to bell the cat? There is a whole lot going on that needs to be resolved.
    I think the best thing that Donald can do for himself at this point is limit what he says in public to the issues.
    The next best thing is to hire someone to manage his public relations professionally. I think a PR man might be insane to work with Donald.
    My idea of a debate is different than their idea at Fox. I think every candidate should have to answer every question put out.
    That limits the number of questions in a debate but puts everyone on an equal footing.
    I think the Black Doctor brain surgeon was impressive. I would like to see more of him. I would consider him for a Vice position only because he is not an experienced politician. He does say all the right words.
    The governors running are all experienced politicians. They answered well.
    I favor the Ohio Governor at this point. But several others were right up there as good candidates. That is unusual. Unlike past elections, I was impressed. Maybe this time we might even get a competent candidate for election. Which means a lot because The Senate is obviously against them.
    One of the biggest issues is Planned Parenthood. The Senate has a lot to answer for there.
