Vote: Who Won the GOP Debate Last Night?

Last night, eight Republican Presidential candidates debated the issues right before the Ames Straw Poll. They were, alphabetically, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum.

Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Pawlenty got into a debate of their own, while Mr. Paul blamed the United States for Iran being our enemy. Mr. Gingrich complained of "Mickey Mouse" questions, while Mr. Romney said he would not eat Barack Obama's "dog food."
But the question is, to you, who won the debate last night? Was it the supposed front-runner Mitt Romney or the compelling Herman Cain? Could it have been Rick Perry, who did not participate, but may have benefited politically from it?

  1. Newt clearly won the debate and as always is inspiring, but he still touts the Clinton fake surplus. Everybody had at least one good punch line. Pawlenty lost some with his childish attack, so did Ron Paul with his foreign policy naivety, as usual, Cain and his common sense approach are always to be praised, Santorum's positions are strong, just needs to work on presentation, Huntsman, still just an 'I don't know', Bachmann, grand as always, and Romney slicker than a fake plug nickel, pffft, not a chance.
