    The focus group of Republicans from SC seem to disagree with you.

    I don't think the abortion thing is a big deal. It's not like if he gets elected he'll be able to make abortions for incest and rape illegal. That would have to go through the courts who would never allow it. So it's really a non-issue.

    She is the best, only she can run in 2012 and win, the US need new ideas and new thinking after too liberal Clinton, stupid Bush and socialist Obama.

    Herman Cain hasn't a chance in Hell of winning the Republican nomination for president. Don't kid yourself those people in the focus group were simply saying they would vote for a black man - nothing more. None of the people you saw last night will be the Republican nominee. Trust me.

    Cain helped himself the most, which is obvious by the amount of internet buzz he is getting.

    Dr. Paul gets the consolation prize for continuing his education style method of not deflecting the questions that they use to marginalize him. Maybe someday he will come to understand two minutes is not enough time to lay out a cohesive philosophy for why the federal government should have no involvement in heroine issues, but I doubt it. Even so, he alone is a great reason to tune in for these super early debates, it's great tv for people that love political debate.

    The biggest losers had to be Gary Johnson and Rick Santorum. I would include Pawlenty as well because maybe it was just me, but he had to of bore the audience to death but Fox is doing their best to try to pump him up making it a wash.

    Do you EVER stop talking about race? Good Lord. You can't seem to see past anyone's color.

    By the way, you voted for Gary Johnson.......Glenn Beck liked him too so you both would've voted for the same person! *grin*

    I was talking in terms of the general not the primaries. He would play much better among republicans. I cannot really comment on how he did with republicans since I am not one.

    I would check the Democrats, but it was not on the list. If those are the candidates the GOP is bringing to the table, I think I can call who is walking away with the win in 2012.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    This has to be one of the saddest comments I have ever seen here at DP. You know exactly jack **** about the motivations of the people in the focus group, and not everything is about race. Your fixation on race says more about you than it does about any one else.
