The chatter over tonight’s Republican debate wasn’t over any candidate there but the one who wasn’t: Donald Trump.

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.
