Winners as I look at it as I think Americans will see it.
1. (Finally) Cruz (if he would have had a better close he would have killed it).
2. Marco (solid).
3. Christi (low information voters).
3.(Tie for real voters) Carson but he didn't break out. Not sure he needed it however.
4. Carly. I like her but she didn't have a break out moment.
5. Paul. I like him but no break out moment and he needed one.
It was nice to see unity generally with all of them.
I think the others were not even worth mentioning as they just didn't connect. Jeb really looked like he was out of date and out of step. Same with the other three.
The biggest loser was NOT CNBC, but the mainstream media.
When Bernie Sanders said that he was tired of Bengazi the press room cheered!!!
The media is out of step and if the Republican bucks them AND the GOP they will win just as Cruz did with David Dewhurst in Texas. The party was against Cruz as was the media.
I think he is going to do it again.
