Rubio Scores, Cruz Assists, Trump Whiffs

Last night’s very spirited debate brings out two questions. One, why are John Kasich and Ben Carson still in the race and on the stage and Two, where were this Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio in the last 9 debates.

Previously only Jeb! Bush was willing to take on Donald Trump, but last night Rubio scored serious points in attacking the narrative that Trump was a good businessman, good manager and the only one who was electable. Cruz hit Trump on his past support for taking down Qaddafi in Libya. (H/T Buzzfeed)

“I can’t believe what our country is doing,” said Trump on his video blog. “Qaddafi in Libya is killing thousands of people, nobody knows how bad it is, and we’re sitting around we have soldiers all have the Middle East, and we’re not bringing them in to stop this horrible carnage and that’s what it is: It’s a carnage.”

I am not sure who Super Tuesday is going to play out, but it will be a lot closer across the board than the Poll say. Trump was hurt last night, but not fatally and it remains to be seen if Cruz and Rubio’s success in the debate last night will translate into votes.

the problem with this view of the debate is that most voters didn’t see it that way. 64% of voters believe that Trump won the debate

Jay, I wouldn’t trust Drudge Polls. Even he admits they are not scientific http://bit.ly/1T07ssF. “Again, the Drudge polls are immediate and unscientific. Anyone can participate. They’re not weighted for demographic balance, one person might vote multiple times from different computers, or their phone. ”

I can see Trump hiring loads of minions, giving them iPhones and laptops and telling them to vote 3 times after each debate.
