What time is the Republican GOP debate tonight: start time, schedule, channel, will Donald Trump win this debate or not
New Hampshire debate is going to be very stormy. Donald Trump, the mercurial real estate billionaire who was absent from the last debate on Fox News and paid the huge price for it in Iowa has repented and promised to join in.
Despite enjoying a massive lead heading into the Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump suffered humiliating loss at the hands of his Republican competitors.
Now he seems to have realized his folly and prepared himself to face the moderators and their tough questions. Everything is on the line tonight as Republican presidential candidates prepare to hash it out on stage for the first time since the Iowa caucuses -â€“ and for the last time before Tuesdayâ€™s New Hampshire primary.
The debate will not have many Republican hopeful as the last debate. This debate, hosted by ABC News and held at St. Anselm College, will offer Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson, former Gov. Jeb Bush, Gov. Chris Christie and Gov. John Kasich a chance to make their pitches to voters of the Granite State.
In the meantime Donald Trump is facing huge challenge and people believe that not just Ted Cruz poses serious challenge before him, Marco Rubio has also emerged as a huge threat for him.
A report while talking about it says, â€œThe Florida senator hasnâ€™t been the main target in previous debates — that honor has mostly gone to Cruz and Trump — but heâ€™s likely to have a bullâ€™s-eye on his back tonight. Still, Rubio hasnâ€™t yet carved out a clear path to winning an early state, and he needs a strong debate performance to even approach Trumpâ€™s support in the Granite Stateâ€.
Many people are wondering about the fate of Jeb Bush. While there is no denying the fact that he has improved a lot as a debater, but he hasnâ€™t come out with the killing punch. Between Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie, there is probably only one ticket out of the Granite State and all three current and former governors are keeping their eyes on the prize. Kasich and Bush are in dead heat in New Hampshire with 8 percent support in recent polls. Christie trails behind at 5 percent, according to a UMass Lowell poll released Friday.
