Winners: Fiorina, Christie
Solid: Trump, Paul, Kasich, Bush
Losers: Walker, Carson, Rubio, Cruz, Huckabee
Shocked to look at Christie as a big winner, but he brought a strong game tonight.
Fiorina consistently had well thought out answers, presented them coherently and sounded confident. I loved the way she demanded the right to speak on military issues after Jake Tapper ignored her for the whole segment. If I had to pick a single winner, she’d be the one.
Rand Paul improved tremendously from his horrible first debate performance. He was energetic and engaging.
Bush was up and down. Had arguably the single best moment - “Eveready. That’s a high energy name, Donald.”
Trump and Kasich similarly had good moments. Trump disappeared a bit at the end. Kasich didn’t get very many opportunities but made good use of at least some of them.
The five guys in my bottom group were flat and listless for the most part.
