Watch live: Fox News GOP debate tonight: Republican debate what time, on which TV channel, 3rd March
His Super Tuesday wins were spectacular. Trump has strengthened his position by winning, winning and more winning. He won seven state in a single day. Trump swamped his rivals by piling up seven wins across the nation, demonstrating broad appeal for his anti-establishment movement.
But the fight didnâ€™t end on Super Tuesday. Like Hillary Clinton, he too failed to come out with a knockout win against
Ted Cruz, his main rival. Trump’s GOP rivals vowed to fight on. Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas, the biggest single prize of the night, and added Oklahoma and Alaska. And Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finally landed his first win of the 2016 season in the Minnesota Republican caucuses. Trump’s victories suggested that he did not pay a significant price for a controversy that flared in recent days over his initial failure to disavow David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, during a CNN interview, and disputes over his business record and positions on immigration.
Today’s debate will give some inkling if his opponents are really ready. Time is running out for the panicking Republican establishment to deny the billionaire the nomination, amid fears his brand of volatile anti-immigrant rhetoric could cost the party not just the White House, but the Senate.
From more than a dozen Republican presidential hopefuls there are merely four candidates left. Retired neurosurgeon and evangelical Christian motivational speaker Ben Carson dropped out of the race on Wednesday, leaving only four candidates to take the stage Thursday for the latest GOP presidential primary debate. The fourth wheel, as it were, is Ohio Gov. John Kasich, whose best finishes are second place in New Hampshire and Vermont.
Many people believe that Republican Party will be rejuvenated by Donald Trump. To be true, his supporters believe his success so far in the GOP presidential primaries heralds a rebirth of the real Republican Party. Others disagree. Trump appears to be gliding toward the nomination on an endless wave of outrage at the political status quo and free media. He’s brought thousands of voters out to the polls who have no respect for conservative intellectual traditions and love Trump’s nativist, strong-man posturing. As a result, a lot of Republican Party insiders are publicly working their way through the stages of grief. Most of them are past denial and are wallowing in either anger or depressionâ€.
In the meantime, 11th GOP debate is scheduled for Thursday at 9 p.m. ET at The Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan. The debate will air on Fox News, Fox News Radio, and all of the network’s mobile apps. You can also stream it with no login required at FoxNews.com.
One exciting aspect of the debate is moderator itslef. The moderator of the debate Megyn Kelly is expected to make the debate all the more interesting. Trump skipped the last Fox News debate over his ongoing feud with Megyn Kelly. He initially claimed that she is “very biased” and should not be allowed to moderate, but he eventually became more incensed by how network CEO Roger Ailes handled the incident. Now he claims his boycott was about “a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting and I said it was inappropriate,” but had “nothing to do with Megyn Kelly,” so he’s happy to appear at the March 3 debate.
