(yankee) Trump will do better in slave states than fake, whiny Southerner Marco Rubio.

Trump may well do better -- but all Rubio needs to do is become the non-Trump. that's what's going to happen over the next few weeks. Trump vs. not-Trump. my sense, right now, is that Rubio is looking best to be not-Trump.

he's not a fake, whiny Southerner. he's the GOP's Obama: vaguely foreign looking kid who made good and may or may not be an empty suit with bad credit.

he's going to get quite a scolding from his 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Clinton, in the general.

Once Fiorina, Kasich, Paul, and Carson get out of the race (Paul I only include because I think his tactic of a boycott backfired when he appeared to be a big baby about it)... and probably Christie too... it will be a lot clearer as to what is steam versus what is made to stay.

I, for one, don't think Jeb Bush is done. There's this big anti-establishment majority right now, but I think those are just the energized voices. There's an arbitrary amount of establishment support that I think will start to turn around, be that for Bush or Christie.

I honestly don't see Rubio making it. I thought he'd be the last man standing before this all started but he comes across as so lazy, so high-schoolish in debates and just generally like an annoying person who studied hard and is book smart but nobody actually likes at the end of the day. On paper he looks great, in real life, totally different story.

I also wouldn't count out Jebbie quite yet, even though he's been the singularly most disappointing candidate.

Likeability works, and it's hard to fake.

No i hadn't seen that but thanks

I love this part:

And, in a quote that holds just as true today, Mazin said he wouldn’t be voting for the guy for president: “I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone. I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.”
He said he would rather pick someone from the phone book...that's so great....i kind of feel the same way! Isn't it interesting that everyone who actually knows Ted Cruz hates him?

After the first couple of primaries, as the riff raff start to drop off, a clear establishment candidate will come out... Whoever that is will have in the nomination. Probably Rubio.

Perhaps this is me just thinking that the Republican electorate isn't made up entirely of racist idiots. Only partially.

This is the first debate I've watched and it's pretty amazing. Christie pivoted a Kim Davis question into ISIS in only 30 seconds, and Carson appeared to blackout in the middle of a question about Russia and spit out something like "Putin is a one horse ... country ... oil ... energy."

The Republican debates are hugely entertaining. The Dem debates are extremely boring by comparison. I've never gotten through more than five minutes once the novelty of Bernie Sanders being exactly like Larry David has worn off.

I didn't watch. Sounds like Jeb had a good night?

I only watched about 20 minutes and the only answer I saw him give was a response to a question about hateful rhetoric towards Muslims. He chastised Trump for inciting hatred in this country and then also talked about how Islamic terrorism is a major problem. Basically a "domestic Muslims aren't the problem, FOREIGN Muslims, now they're the problem" kind of thing. About as good as you could hope for from a Republican, I guess.

Cruz slightly underperformed
Rubio will be called the winner

Haha how about the part where Carson read out part of the constitution, adding in like "folks, enough said." and dropping the mic as he left the stage in style? Dude thought he was so sharp and with it.... that man is truly in another world.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are leading the polls. I don't think likeability is the key factor right now.

It's disturbing to say, but I can see how *some* people may like Donald Trump. If you like oafish guys who say outlandish things while making faces? But I can't understand how anyone could like Cruz.

Agreed. I would call Trump a pretty likeable guy, if he was supporting your views. Cruz really just looks, talks, and acts like a total douchebag.
