Who won the debate? How Donald Trump further strengthens his hold

Everyone is wondering as to who won the Republican presidential debate last night. The debate conducted by CNBC was seen by millions and millions of people across the US. Not just Republican voters, even Democrat and undecided voters were interested to see as to who trounces whom and who comes on top.

While in the first republican debate it was billionaire businessman Donald Trump who made others look like minnows with his overwhelming presence, in the second Republican debate it was former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina who won the debate handsomely.

Now in the third round there doesn’t seem to be an overwhelmingly clear winner. The CNBC Republican presidential debate that was held at the University of Colorado will be remembered for intense exchanges and another round of anti-media attack.

Cruz said, “How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?…nobody watching at home believes that any of the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

Apparently that was not enough and soon Trump too joined the party by calling the media ‘nasty and ridiculous.’

There is no denying the fact that the real estate czar was again in the same old mood that he showed in the first and second debate. A report says, “Trump was flashes of his typical bombastic self and anything less than that would have been disappointing to fans. Still, he did seem to temper his answers and try to come across as more presidential. Trumps answered the questions about his bankruptcies and fiscal policies before and his answers – at least according to the polls – satisfy voters. His gun control comments were some of the strongest of the night for him and helped push him into the win column.”

Marco Rubio must be commended for keeping his composure despite all-out assault from many, especially his one-time mentor Jeb Bush. Media has asked him to resign from Senate saying he has been an absentee senator who has also not been in the senate to vote on many important issues. Nonetheless first Rubio faced them with great patience and then he hit back at the moderators as being part of a liberal media, a line that will be well received by conservatives and ended up being a good move. There is no denying the fact that despite high-pitched attack by others present there, it was mostly a strong performance by Rubio, though the door was opened for opponents to highlight his own shaky financial past.

Ben Carson doesn’t boasts like Donald Trump. He doesn’t shout. In fact many people have to struggle to understand what he says. Nonetheless despite all these complaints the neurosurgeon has seen his graph goup and up. His surge seems to be very rapid in the past few weeks and this seems to be putting pressure on Donald Trump team. There is no denying the fact that his responses as far as same-sex marriage is concerned plays well with his base and was one of his most direct statements to date. He handled tough questions related to his involvement with a supplement maker with a much-needed dose of personality. With today’s performance he will certainly find many more fans.
