    Be nice, watching debates is educational even with quasi-candidates. Think of it as a mock trial, stressing mock.

    I don't know about that. The focus group on Fox was made up of voters from SC and they were kinda pissy that the others didn't feel like this debate was important enough to show up.

    Pawlenty's closing remarks were so robotic. He's at the bottom of the list for me.

    Drat, I honestly didn't realize the debates had begun so much. So many "suspected" candidates hadn't announced yet that I had figured it must not have been the start of the primary season yet. I'll have to search for the video and watch this weekend.

    Herman Cain stole the show, in my opinion.
    I have always thought that about Pawlenty... It's like I can't figure out why he wants to be president or what he's doing.

    Not really appropriate for me to pick winners and losers since these are not to folks I wil be voting for anyway and my selection criteria would be different from those who might vote for one of them, but Cain strikes me as the one who would be the least thread, after Paul, in a general election against Obama.

    Re: Who won the first GOP Presidential Debate?

    The whole who won or lost a debate thing is silly. There is no uniform way to determine winners or losers, either what they said resonated with you or it didn't. It is wide open to confirmation bias and is completely subjective and will vary from person to person.

    Basically the question boils down to "Who said what you wanted to hear best?"

    I'm counting the Ron Paul votes as 1. Why on earth are non-members allowed to vote?
