George cited Trump’s allegations that Fiorina had poorly run Hewlett-Packard as CEO, adding that the Wall Street Journal had pointed out that the stock price dropped more than 50 percent on her watch, and that the merger with Compaq had also failed.
Mr Trump’s stubborn popularity with voters has unsettled the Republican party establishment, which is shifting its support between Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida and the current senator of Florida, Marco Rubio. Going into the debate, the only question was, who would come after Trump first?
“There really is none”, said Michael Reagan Wednesday on AM640 radio’s Bill Carroll Show when asked which candidate was most like his father.
According to a Morning Consult poll released Friday, 29 percent of viewers thought Fiorina was the victor of the debate, which was broadcast by CNN in Simi Valley, California, reports The Hill.

His campaign is holding a fundraiser in New Orleans Thursday night, and he is set to resume a campaign tour through all 99 counties in Iowa this weekend.

But I think all these front-runners are going to implode. That Eveready joke, of course, a response to Donald Trump’s needling of Jeb Bush all through the summer of being a low-energy candidate.
Three of the 11 candidates ended the night with negative sentiment scores: Mike Huckabee at negative 16.6, Scott Walker at negative 5.1, and Ted Cruz at negative 2.6. Maybe it works for Hillary Clinton. She was showing that she was warm and amusing and likable, and Fallon put on a blond wig and pretended to be Donald Trump and give her some advice.
