A new CNN poll of the registered Republican and Republican-leaning voters finds Carly Fiorina taking second place in the GOP presidential primary, behind Donald Trump and just one point ahead of Ben Carson. The poll, taken over the course of the three days following CNN's September 16 debate, found Trump with 24 percent support, down 8 points from the same poll earlier this month and back to where he was in the CNN poll a month ago.
This was a debate I thought would never end. It lasted for three hours and seemed like longer. We even learned from each of the eleven Republican presidential candidates whose face should be on the $10 bill. No blood was spilled, metaphorically speaking. There were no losers.
Senator Marco Rubio explained foreign policy in Russia and Syria concisely during Wednesday's Republican Debate. Putin is "trying to replace us as the single most important power broker in the Middle East and this president is allowing it." Watch the full clip here:
As Jeb Bush and Donald Trump were arguing, Scott Walker interjected:
"[T[his is what is wrong with the debate. We're not talking about real issues. Mr. Trump, we don't need an apprentice in the White House, we have one right now. He told us all the things we wanted to hear back in 2008. We don't know who you are, where you're going—we need someone that can actually get the job done and you've talked about business."
Trump then said, "In Wisconsin you're losing $2.2 billion right now. I would do so much better than that."
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has written a letter to CNN president Jeff Zucker asking the news network donate the ad profits for next week's GOP presidential debate to veterans. Trump posted a photo of the letter to his Twitter account. See the tweet below:
Needless to say, The Scrapbook is strictly neutral on the results of last week’s Republican presidential debate on Fox News. So neutral, in fact, that we won’t even mention any of the highlights—or lowlights, if you prefer—and certainly won’t weigh in on who swept the floor with whom, who embarrassed him/herself, or who should have been invited to this particular gathering but was not.
