GOP presidential debate tonight: What time, channel, how to live stream online, Telemundo en vivo
Can Republican frontrunner Donald Trump be defeated by his opponents? While many analysts have said that he can be defeated, no strategy seems to have worked in this regard on the ground. His opponents despite doing everything have miserably failed to match his charisma.
Many said that if either Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush need to drop from the presidential race to give one of them chance to face the billionaire businessman effectively. But this doesnâ€™t seem to have happened.
Jeb Bush left the Republican presidential race after being hammered badly in one primary after the other. Nonetheless it doesnâ€™t seem to have done any good to the fortunes of Marco Rubio who seems to be the only favorite of the Republican favorite left in the presidential race.
Despite the fact that now a dozen republican hopefuls have left the race, there is nothing to suggest that Trumpâ€™s support is crumbling. On the contrary his support seems to be expanding among different ethnic groups.
A report while shedding details on Trumpâ€™s strategy says, â€œwhile In a race that began with 17 candidates, Trump has benefited from deftly playing off his opponents against one another. With four left, he can still control the race with far less than a majority of the vote. Neither Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida nor Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is likely to give way willingly, or join forces with the other. And two long-shot candidates would still snarl efforts to unite the anti-Trump vote: Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and Ben Carson have plodded on despite their slim chances. But should the field suddenly dwindle to one or two rivals of Trump, perhaps after Super Tuesday, it would test the breadth of his support as never beforeâ€.
Five Republican hopefuls are going to be part of the debate tonight. Candidates had to get 5% support in any of the Iowa and Nevada caucuses or New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries, and Tuesdayâ€™s Nevada caucuses. Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Carson and Kasich have all cleared this bar.
Things are looking bright for the reality czar. With Trump winning big in Nevada and South Carolina and Jeb Bush dropping out of the race, the pecking order is clear: Trump is the leader, and Cruz and Rubio are his only realistic chasers. Rubio finished second in South Carolina and in Nevada, and though the Cruz campaign has faced internal conflict this week, heâ€™s still in the top tier and will remain a threat to Trump in the race.
