The first question is one that primary candidates are frequently asked. Obama and Clinton were repeatedly asked this question during the 08 primary. Why should Trump not be asked a standard question just cause he doesn't have the standard answer?

I don't think they were expecting to hear the answer he gave either.

None of the others really said anything about 3rd party runs, Trump did. Besides the rest are probably already owned by lobby.

But it's a standard primary question. Sounds like you want them to refrain from asking standard questions so poor little Trump doesn't have to feel singled out when he's the only one with a different answer.

Terrible idea. We would end up like Belgium without a government for years at a time.

Like I said, there is a fill in the blank. You can write none or nothing at all.


No.

Bullshit bro. That wasn't a standard question, that was aimed directly at trump and was intended to get the crowd booing him from the get go. f**k Megan kelly and fox, hope trump DESTROYS THOSE LOSERS.

In fact, Stelter stated on the Sunday morning program, the audience, by one measure, was 50% larger than the headline number of 24 million, which reflects average Fox News viewership during the hours of 9 and 11 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, while the debate was on air. Stelter noted that the debate telecast’s overall reach was 36 million, reflecting the number of viewers who tuned in at some point.

wow...for perspective:
CLEVELAND, Ohio - A U.S. television audience of 33.4 million made Monday's Ohio State-Oregon game on ESPN the second most watched college football championship ever.

The bigger question is: did the republicans really want 36 million people to see that shit?
