Wednesday night, 16 Republican presidential candidates squared off at the Republican 2016 Debate on CNN to an audience of more than 20 million viewers.
Going into the contest, Donald Trump led the pack in the polls, but after being hit from all sides during the evening–and taking jabs at his fellow Republicans on their looks and position in the polls–he seemed to lose a bit of his luster.
According to most pundits, former HP executive Carly Fiorina looked the most impressive as she levied attacks against Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood, and Trump.
Jeb Bush attempted to show a little more fight during the debate, taking on Trump and defending his brother, former President George W. Bush.
Ben Carson, who’s been surging in the polls, maintained his quiet demeanor, commenting on immigration, vaccines, and foreign policy.
While the debate covered a plethora of topics, police reform, Black Lives Matter, and improving the education system, particularly in the inner city, did not come up.
