Poll results GOP debate on CBS News in South Carolina: Who won, who lost

It was as fiery as it could get. Now there are apprehensions that the rivalry between Republican presidential hopefuls is getting dirtier than anyone would have imagined in the past.

Donald Trump is calling everyone names and attacking past Republican presidents. Thus far his attack has been limited to his GOP opponents. He has called almost every opponent ‘biggest liar’ and in the debate on Saturday attacked Jeb Bush’s father and brother, both of whom served the US as President and both were GOP stalwarts.

In the meantime there are totally contradictory views about the outcome of the debate. While there are people who have called Donald Trump a winner of the Saturday night in South Carolina despite the boos he received from the audience that was made up of only Republicans and Independents, some other polls suggest that Marco Rubio was the winner of the debate.

Republican debate 2016The debate will be remembered for Jeb Bush and Donald Trump duel. The best moment of the night was when Donald J Trump and Jeb Bush, a former governor of Florida, took on each other. The two leaders clashed in an extended, personal clash over the Iraq war and President George W. Bush’s record on national security.

Trump also hit former President George W. Bush hard, directing some blame at him for the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and saying he erred badly by invading Iraq in 2003. Bush also took a dig at Trump for advocating too cozy a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Middle East. Trump said that George W Bush committed a mistake by invading Iraq. Jeb Bush counter-punched: “I could care less about the insults Donald Trump gives to me. … I am sick and tired of him going after my family.” “The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe?” Trump said. “I lost hundreds of friends in the 9/11 terrorist attack.” If this was a clash of Republican and Democratic contestants, these attacks were understandable. Such attacks will give Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders enough firepower to nail the GOP opponent in presidential elections 2016.

In the meantime CBS News has said that 9th GOP debate was watched by as many as 13.5 million viewers. That’s the 5th most-watched GOP debate this cycle and highest since CNN’s GOP debate on Dec. 15. The 2-hour debate peaked between 10:00-10:30 p.m. ET, with 14.63 million viewers. There are two more GOP debates scheduled, one before Super Tuesday on CNN, and one two days after Super Tuesday, on Fox News.
