Hot Air: "Debate Deflate Continues: Second Night Dropoff 40% From Previous Debate."
This article tries to do an autopsy and figure out why Americans tuned out. Is it that everybody hates CNN? Or could it be that the field of candidates is just too crowded.
I'll give you my two cents: people are sick of the rote regurgitation of talking points. The DNC banned "raise your hand" questions for this debate after the first one caused embarrassing moments like every Democrat agreeing Americans should pay for illegals' health care. The next debate should be nothing but raising hands. Let's have a binary position on the issues instead of the word salads.
