All about Republican Debate

Since the first Republican debate, two more have taken place. Between them they’ve covered topics ranging from taxes to immigration, and more. 

We live blogged the first three of these Republican debates with information about who was on stage and what they said. 

Unlike many other live blogs you might find online, ours includes only the most important moments in each debate. 

You can also read a very similar live blogging guide to the Democratic debates between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Here are the updates of the live blogging republican debate.

For a recap of all the things we’ve said so far, read our first post here: The Republican Debate “Leaders” Include All But One of the Candidates Lying About Their Positions on Climate Change. 

Those comments were written before Mike Huckabee became the newest Republican candidate to claim that humans have no effect on climate change, or that it won’t any time soon. 

We’re continuing our live blog because we don’t know if higher polling candidates will join Huckabee in denying reality for political gain.

Here are some points discussed about The Republican Debate-

1. First Republican Debate Recap

The first Republican presidential debate was held on Fox News. 

The big winner of the debate was Donald Trump, who dominated the non-substantive questions about “birther” conspiracies by saying that he brought the issue to national attention. 

Other winners included Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul, the only two candidates that were able to give direct answers to the questions asked of them. 

On the other hand, Jeb Bush struggled to find his footing throughout much of it. 

2. Second Republican Debate Recap

The second GOP debate occurred on CNN this time around. The clear winner was Marco Rubio, who once again gave direct responses but also showed great confidence and maturity in doing so. The loser of the night was Ben Carson, who gave answers that weren’t very clear or well-thought out. 

3. Third Republican Debate Recap

The third Republican presidential debate occurred on CNBC. John Kasich and Chris Christie dominated the night with their conversational style and humor, and both seemed to be the only people who actually understood what was going on during the debate. 

The other winners were Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz, as they both came off as strong during particular moments of the debate. 

The loser of the night was Jeb Bush who simply wasn’t as strong as he needed to be to be taken seriously as a candidate for the presidency.
