Well, that depends on how you look at it. Numerous different metrics can be used to measure social media success – and depending on which metrics you look at, the social media victor of debate night is either Donald Trump, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, or Democrat Bernie Sanders.
From revamping a picture and fundraising to attracting youthful voters, social media have performed an enormous position in earlier presidential campaigns and analysts do not anticipate that momentum to decelerate this yr.

The flood of Floridians “tells you that it’s a great place to live“, Carson said.
Both Twitter and Facebook said the most talked-about moment online came between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and US Senator Rand Paul.
Paul has supported curbs on the government’s ability to collect information on Americans, which Christie said could put U.S. citizens at risk.
The heated back-and-forth included Paul declaring Christie was so close to Democratic President Barack Obama he gave him a “big hug”. Christie was photographed with the president after an enormous storm hit his state in 2012.
Twitter said Friday that tweets about the GOP debate were viewed more than 1.1 billion times on Twitter and across the Web. When host Megyn Kelly called on him for a second question, roughly 40 minutes into the debate, Carson marked that neglect with humor.
“When I take someone to the operating room, I’m actually operating on the thing that makes them who they are”. Kardashian wrote. “I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country!”
“I’m hoping that he will at some point come to an understanding that if he runs as a third-party candidate, he will essentially hand the election to the progressives, who will get two or three Supreme Court picks, and America will be gone as we know it”, Carson said.
