    Simple question: Who won tonight's debate on CNN?

    Please tell us who, why, and which way you're leaning with your vote after watching the candidates tonight.

    I have to back my man Ron Paul. I think he still is the only candidate that clearly stands out against the others, certainly on the war issue. As far as Rudy and Romney go, I have a hard time believing anything they say. Specially Rudy. How do you know when a lawyer is lying?

    Why was Huckabee invited?

    I'm watching the debate on tape, about an hour through it, and Huckabee has only had about 2 minutes to speak. What's the deal? And why so many questions for Mr. Gilmore?

    Ron Paul seems to be the most honest, I just find it hard to believe the others>

    I didn't watch it. However, I'm considering casting a vote for Chuck Norris, depending on who gets the Republican nod. I'll vote for almost any of those guys other than McCain, Paul, Romney(iffy), and Guiliani.

    I voted for Ron Paul. I like what he has to say. I think he is honest and means what he says, and is not just spinning things for a vote.

    His record is one of the best in Congress, I don't see how anyone could beat him, he has my vote unless things change.

    Do we have any up to date data on the poll figures for the candidates? Of what I have seen Fred Thompson seems a good man, but I know little of the others, except for Rudy and McCain.

    I don't know about data, but you can go to youtube to find out more about these fellas. They each have several videos where they talk about their stance on different issues. Personally, I like Huckabee(SBC minister, former Arkansas governor), Tancredo(congressman), and maybe Brownback(senator).

    Here's the CNN Poll . Ron Paul won 5 out of 6 positive categories (he finished second for snappiest dresser). Well done spammers!

    McCain, Giuliani, and Romney are the three worst of the bunch. Those are the three that have no chance for my vote. I pray that our next President was not present at either of the two debates in the last few days.

    Hard to pick a winner because the playing field is not fair. Not everyone got to answer every question. The debate was biased because of the announcers. So the poll is more a popularity poll than a who "won" the debate poll. So if I had to pick a winner it would be Fred Thompson, because he wasn't in that big glob of folks. :)

    I think Guiliani got the benefit of having the most face time. That being said, I'd never vote for him.

    Does anyone else find it interesting and a bit odd that Blitzer won the talk time in the republican debate :)

    There is no question that there is an effort online to get people to vote in polls for Ron Paul. Is that somehow wrong? The spamming accusation implys that a small number of people are casting many votes, which is not the case. Also, everyone that reads digg is free to go to those same polls and vote for Ghoulianni or McCain, and apparently they don't want to. So really its just whining that more people who know how to get on the internet support Ron Paul.
