We have about 50 minutes left until it starts. It starts at 7pm (central time) and is on CNN. Who do yall think will win this time?

www.cnn.com...


CNN hosts the first New Hampshire Republican presidential debate Monday night from Manchester at 8 p.m. ET. Follow all the issues and campaign news about the debate on CNNPolitics.com and @cnnpolitics on Twitter. Watch the debate on CNN TV, CNN.com and mobile devices. And participate with your questions on the live blog on the CNN Political Ticker.


Im guessing Paul will win this debate.


Tonight, Paul will be the same Paul that stood on this same stage in Manchester four years ago, except this time, he has more support and more money. But his message will be the same -- and don't be surprised if he says "I told you so."


Time to break out the chips and soda....

Edit - I believe CNN is asking viewers to also ask questions on facebook or twitter, but Im not sure where the link for that is.

Ron Paul will shine like a diamond in the rough...

Everyone else seems clueless / scared to talk about real issues and solutions.

Mitt Romney will make Paul look silly..

While we here on ATS and the internet may love ron paul
the majority of America think he is a nut job..

It is sad, and it is true...

I don't like mormons, and Romney is a big a moron.

So it is a loose loose situation for me (imo)..


NO ONE IS GOING TO BEAT OBAMA... NO MATTER WHO!!!!!!

I'll be watching though..

I personally like Herman Cain. I like Herman Cain because I LOVE godfathers pizza...

I'm a cynical bias SOB when it comes to politics...

Just a few minutes ago on CNN they said Romney has about 30% of the polls, and Paul comes in 2nd with only 9% (they excluded Palin and a few others).

At the moment, it looks like Romney, Cain, and Paul are going to be the big contenders in this debate

It's like watching the world series. I'll tune in for game 7 around the 6th inning. The rest is just boring.

I as most of us here probably pretty much know more about these guys running than the general public so I don't think much of anything will happen with this early debate. It's more of a test run for the candidates to sound off against each other and see how the formats work out.

Make sure they get their make-up right and their suit looks good on the telly.

Yes, I do believe they will have a live stream on their website. I think they will have the live stream at cnn.com up once the debate starts, or it may be here to live.cnn.com...

I could throw a rock at the debate, but that also means Im in Bruins country and they are in the Stanley Cup finals in a do or die game. maybe inbetween periods.

Thanks for drawing some attention to it though. Sometimes these things go slightly unnoticed this early unless you're keeping an eye out for them.

This is going to be interesting to watch.

The front runners of the debate will be Mitt Romney and Ron Paul the entire way. These two guys should have no problem holding their ground on the issues. On the other hand, Newt Gingrich is going to come out of this limping like a wounded animal -- he doesn't stand a chance. I've no doubt he'll get a couple jabs in here and there, but he won't be able to overcome his creditability issues.

Then there's the wild card -- Michele Bachmann. Normally this would be the title that Ron Paul holds, however he has worked his way into the American mindset to such an extent that people aren't scratching their heads and wondering, "Ron who?" Anyway, Bachmann is everything that Sarah Palin is not: experienced, articulate and intelligent. She'll be able to hold her own during the debate without having to struggle with talking points or deflect her own inadequacies by claiming the MSM is picking on her.

The others rounding out the group: Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum and Herman Cain don't have the staying power needed to win the GOP nomination. I imagine they'll be among the first to drop out of the race.

I hope Ron Paul does well. I have far less faith in the voting public to inform themselves. Those that call themselves fans of any candidate are completely hopeless to any worthwhile cause. I think his main problem is that he has too much educating to do to win over voters. Unfortunately, the masses are mostly informed by sound bites and buzzwords spewed by entertainment “news.”

I'm gonna to watch it. I have a feeling that Ron Paul is going to sound like the only sane one, as usual. It should be fun to watch.

Tim and Rick dont really look like they are getting the support from the voters that they need. Cain is interesting though. During the first debate last month, he did amazingly well (not as good as Paul though IMO). Cain has been saying what the public wants to hear and seems to have already picked up alot of support, but since he is one of the newest figures, im not sure how long he will be able to keep up.

Edit- I gotta say I think Bachmaan is the wild card to. It will be interesting to see what she has to say tonight,

Cain is not a serious contender in that he actually stands a chance of winning the nomination. He's in the same spot Ron Paul was in last time around. He has his supporters, he'll get his name and viewpoints on the issues out there and he will slowly build name recognition. He's dipping his toes in the water, so to speak.

If he manages to catch enough attention this go around, next time he'll have an easier time making the final list.

What do Republicans think of Pawlenty? I've only seen a couple short interviews with him but he seems pretty charismatic, which is (unfortunately) a big prerequisite for being President. The sense I got watching him is he seems to be pretty down to Earth but not in a dumb Palin-kinda way.

I'll be watching the Stanley Cup finals, game 6 in about 10 minutes.

I heard Herman in an interview on CNN a couple days ago. He actually sounded pretty reasonable. However, I doubt the masses would ever elect him; he doesn't seem as charismatic as others.

Its starting!

Right now the candidates are being introduced and walking onto stage. (I guess it takes a few minutes to get everything set up and stuff)

Here is a link Watch Live. I'll watch with you - but this is all a setup. Romney has been preselected the favorite which is probably a ruse to have him beaten down by the press and replaced with a substitute at the last moment, probably Perry. Paul has no chance - but he's right about everything (prediction).

You like a guy just because of the pizza he pays people to make? Really?

What about his job as CHAIRMAN OF FEDERAL RESERVE??!!?!?

From Wikipedia



He is a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the civilian board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.


Im sorry but a guy who helps create all the problems with our economy is NOT the answer
