The chatter over tonight’s Republican debate wasn’t over any candidate there but the one who wasn’t: Donald Trump.
Trump skipped tonight’s debate (for a variety of reasons he listed) and instead held a rally for veterans nearby, broadcast on CSPAN.
The subject of Trump’s absence was quickly brought up by Megyn Kelly, and Ted Cruz’s response kicked off the night with a zinger.
As for whether this will help or hurt Trump, we’ll have to wait to see how the polls change. A poll from Greta Van Susteren’s show found that 83% wouldn’t watch the debate without Trump, indicating his popularity.
