I watched through someone else's feed. No cable and all.

It was worth the lulz.


Anyway, I have been an independent since I was 18, but plan on registering as a REP this year so I can vote for Trump in the primaries. It is not that I think he can win it is just that all of the candidates are a joke. None of them have a chance at winning so I am tired of boring debates at least with Trump they will not be so boring.


The only real question is will Bernie or Clinton be the one facing him.


RIP democracy.

The Daily Show audience is young enough to know how to use a computer.



Not so much with the FOX audience.

The only reason why the ratings are as high as they are is because people tuned in to watch Trump spout off his Trumpisms. Purely for entertainment reasons only.

I totally agree. Is this all we have representing the GOP nowadays? I think they know the pool is watered down this elections, so is this is why we have so many "candidates".
I wonder what the Democratic side will bring on? Will Gore make a suprise appearance? A Hillary, Biden, Gore, Sanders, debate?
That would be interesting....

Sad for what passes as a debate now a days.

Lead the easily led people while making money. Two birds.


Heh meanwhile the left is delaying debates so they wont make the mistake of fielding a criminal .

They were waiting for Trump to say "you're fired".


I wish that was just a joke, but sadly I believe it to be true. They watched to be entertained, nothing more.



True but ,

Not sure what is more sad: people watching for the reasons you state , or people expecting a GOP or DNC moderated debate to be anything other than scripted entertainment?

Why is Trump so popular, he ran last time with little fanfare, what's different this time?


He didn't drop out this time before releasing his financials.

So nearly 7x the people watched the debate rather than watch a comedian. Is that supposed to be a bad thing? Jon Stewart himself would say that's fantastic that people are watching for themselves rather than let someone else break it down for them.

24 million people wasted their time that's what happened.

They got to see 3 idiots interview candidates.

I would not consider the information Fox presents 'news'.
No one who is vaguely aware does not either.

I wouldn't say it was time wasted. I learned a lot about each candidate. None of them said very much of course, but 30 seconds is enough for me to get a pretty good idea of who a person is. And I got some evidence to reinforce those viewpoints too.

There is about a 5% chance per candidate that they're going to be president. That's enough of a reason to watch and see how they act.

I will say though, that I didn't like how the moderators were choosing candidates, giving some easier questions and others harder ones.
