CBS News South Carolina debate poll update: Republican debate may prove crucial for all in days to come

CBS News South Carolina debate rating seems to have touched a new high. The fiery debate of the Republican presidential hopefuls was watched by as many as 13.51 spectators in the US. There are many million other people from around the world who watched it later on CBS website and on other Youtube channels.

To be true it is not the highest when it comes to watching Republican debates even during this primary season. The highest-rated candidate showdown took place on Oct. 28 as many as 14 million watched CNBC’s event, according to Nielsen data.

To be true, compared to Democratic primary that seem to be a rather boring affair, Republican debates are more interesting given the fact that these are fiery, intense and overall very directly attacking. You listen ‘liars’ and ‘biggest liars’ so often and profane abuses without giving a thought that it seems a free for all affair.Republican debate 2016

This is the reason that GOP debates have been attracting more and more people. The audience topped the 13.18 million viewers who watched the Feb. 6 debate on ABC, which was also a raucous affair. But political commentators were comparing the lack of civility in Saturday’s contentious meeting of the six remaining GOP candidates in Greenville, S.C., to a steel-cage wrestling match. At one point, CBS News moderator John Dickerson chastised the battling candidates by saying, “Hold on gentlemen, I’m going to turn this car around.”

In the meantime it was hard to declare a winner in the debate amid the constant volley of insults, not all of them from Trump. Cruz and fellow Senator Marco Rubio also took pointed jabs at each other over illegal immigration. But Trump dominated the debate conservation on Twitter with 40 percent of the mentions, according to data from the micro-blogging platform. Trump’s combative style has set the tone for much of the campaign but in recent days he had pledged to pursue a more measured, positive approach. At the debate, that strategy lasted only through his comments about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who was found dead on Saturday. Trump was quickly goaded when Bush criticized Trump’s past statements that Russia has a role to play in Syria. Russia, Bush said, is not attacking Islamic State militants but instead helping Syrian President Bashir Assad, who Washington wants to leave power.
