And timing of mistake
.@JohnKasich had the luxury of being virtually ignored in #fitn. That's unlikely to continue if he has any traction at all in #fits @happywarrior_94 @tedcruz @LPDonovan It's probably going to look like this: Cruz v Trump; Cruz v Rubio; Bush v Rubio; Bush v Kasich @happywarrior_94 @tedcruz @LPDonovan Cruz & Trump will get into it.For my money, @tedcruz had the best night outside of Trump. Deserves the Rubio Iowa treatment for his NH finish..@marcorubio takes responsibility for #fitn drubbing & vows: "That will never happen again." tells his supporters: Disappointing #fitn results is "not on you." .. "It's on me.""I did not do well on Saturday night ... It will never happen again." @marcorubio #fitnNever repeat the error when issuing the correction. stations cut away from Jeb after 30 seconds to cover Trump speech.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@GovChristie projected sixth place. So anecdotal evidence matches results: He gets no benefit from hobbling @marcorubio #fitn @SeanTrende @DemFromCT I think this is a good point from ST. All candidates get knocked down. Winners bounce back.This obvious the moment it happened. HRC wins South Carolina we'll all say we knew Sanders was a 1-hit wonder. Then when he wins again we'll say we all knew HRC was doomedTranslation: I hate this place. @energydonk That's not going to happen. But it could still be a disaster. @energydonk Depends on where he finishes. Right now his best hope is "disappointing." @energydonk Well...If Trump wasn't Trump, Kasich's second place would look a lot different..@ABC News projects Kasich will finish second. jumble for 3/4/5, but Christie will finish 6th, Fiorina 7th, Carson 8th
Retweeted by David M. DruckerDems voluntarily brought it up to me in interviews. "Trump's twist on compassionate conservatism"
Retweeted by David M. DruckerNew NH Exit poll: Trump does best among self described GOP moderates - winning 34% of them. He did best among moderates in Iowa too.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerPeople keep putting Rubio in the "establishment lane" like he's Bush-Christie-Kasich, but it doesn't quite fit. He's too conservative
Retweeted by David M. DruckerSpoke to a voter who planned to vote Trump until he got to the polls and found out he's a registered Dem. He chose Bernie. #fitn
Retweeted by David M. DruckerOther than Trump winning, nobody in #fitn NH seems to know what's going to happen. Here's one of reasons why:, @CHueyBurnsRCP and I will be hosting a special edition of RCP Radio on @SXMPOTUS, live from Manchester NH. Tune in at 2 p.m.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerHuh. thing that has really sunk in in covering 2016 so far: Running for president of the United States is a very hard thing to do. #fitn.@ByronYork notices something interesting that I've seen here in #fitn over past few days: There is not enough support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Retweeted by David M. DruckerI'm sure you'll see this again today: NH has 23 GOP delegates; threshold to get 1 is 10% of vote.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerSo far, unscientific Manchester polling station exit poll: One each for Rubio, Jeb, Kasich, Carly, Trump & Bernie #fitn
In six minutes three votes will be cast somewhere north of here.Major data pt: Kasich voter tells me he's for the OH gov because they're both from Pittsburgh & Kasich's accent reminds him of home. #fitnThat Kasich quote was to @megynkelly on her show, re: a Jeb attack ad."I'm really disappointed in Jeb. He's taking a low road to the highest office in the land." @JohnKasich #fitnBREAKING: FBI confirms investigation into @HillaryClinton's emails.

Why are their no political ads w/ talking dogs and singing sheep? #fitn#MakeFieldGoalsGreatAgain @happywarrior_94 Probably but don't best on Bush getting outAny polls to give us an idea of what's going to happen in the 4th quarter? #SuperBowlCampaigns and super PACs spent at least $1.8 million on Super Bowl ads
Retweeted by David M. Drucker#MakePenaltiesGreatAgain #SuperBowlFor a research project, decided to watch #SuperBowl to get a better handle on what's important to real voters. #fitnTed Cruz courts Rand Paul voters in New Hampshire via @DCExaminerSIREN: Rubio pledges to "ban disco" when president, "except for the BeeGees and Donna Summers."
Retweeted by David M. Drucker"When I am president we are going to ban Disco music." @marcorubio #fitnLIVE on #Periscope: Marco Rubio super bowl pary context and quotations on @tedcruz's "psychopath" remark:
Retweeted by David M. DruckerABC: Our debate ratings went *up* in each half-hour, probably welcome news at Rubio HQ.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerCruz: "It was striking that three different people onstage came out in support of drafting women into the military... are you guys nuts?"
Retweeted by David M. DruckerRubio looks to rebound after debate drubbing via @DCExaminerUm, guys, I'm at a Kasich event right now and a lot of people are saying they were leaning toward Rubio before the debate. And after? No.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @PoliticoScott ...But Christie/Rubio have generally been playing for different pool of voters. Kasich bigger threat to CC than MR. @PoliticoScott Most voters I've talked to that are deciding between the govs are deciding tween govs - not others. Not ruling out but...Why did @GovChristie targeted @marcorubio at #GOPDebate when it's unclear he stands to gain Rubio voters? > pundits
Retweeted by David M. Drucker"We're interviewed out." #fitn voter @adeleshiv @HotlineJosh Not against, undecided. @HotlineJosh The others, inclu supporters & undecideds, say it doesn't matter to them either way. @HotlineJosh Not "lost." That's why still here today to see him. But "experience" charge resonated. Still undecided & shopping.Packed room hour early 4 @marcorubio morning after #GOPDebate. Anecdotal - debate matters to 1/4 of my voter intvws.
#Yuge @ Saint Anselm College took a beating tonight. He better hope Google searches don't make NH voters change their minds before Tuesday.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerTalk times after 3rd break, per @barbarasprunt Rubio: 17:37 Cruz: 16:45 Trump: 14:49 Christie: 12:12 Bush: 11:53 Kasich: 9:47 Carson: 8:03
Retweeted by David M. DruckerRubio has more NH Google searches than Trump during the debate. And I think this is probably good for him.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@JebBush telling a story brought up by a voter from his town hall today in Bedford, NH #GOPDebateTalk times after 2nd break, per @barbarasprunt: Cruz: 15:28 Rubio: 12:58 Trump: 12:04 Christie: 8:48 Bush: 7:55 Kasich: 7:37 Carson: 6:06
Retweeted by David M. DruckerFact check: Trump has won just of 3 of 22 head-to-head polls vs. Clinton per Real Clear Politics
Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@HillaryClinton wants to face @realDonaldTrump more than any other Republican running. Maybe she shouldn't - but she does. #GOPDebate.@mkhammer asking questions Republicans want asked. #GOPDebate"I joined w/ Sen. McCain..." @tedcruz (no, he really said that) #GOPDebateRNC re Trump charge: 75 people were RNC donors. About a 1000 people total. Saint Anselm received the majority of non-party official tix
Retweeted by David M. DruckerStory of the debate so far is "the revenge of the governors"
Retweeted by David M. DruckerNobody's bothering w/ @JohnKasich, and he's having his best debate since Cleveland. #GOPDebate.@JebBush w/ a solid hit on Trump for the Atlantic City eminent domain issue. #GOPDebate"Eminent domain is absolutely a necessity." @realDonaldTrump #GOPDebate.@marcorubio finally has a good moment under tough questioning. Handles #immigration well. #GOPDebateActually Cruz opposes Trump's deportation plan. #GOPDebate.@marcorubio smartly declines to defend his point about @BarackObama's effectiveness. It was OK once. More than once - NO. #GOPDebate.@GovChristie brought the sauce against @marcorubio. @JebBush was a bit milder, compared to what he's said in interviews. #GOPDebate"He simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States." @GovChristie #GOPDebateHere comes the @marcorubio pile-on. How will he respond. #GOPDebateDebate opens w/ policy, diverts to shenanigans. ((sigh)) #GOPDebate"Ben, I'm sorry." @tedcruz #GOPDebate"I'm not going to use this opportunity to savage the reputation of Sen. Cruz." @RealBenCarson #GOPDebate"Every individual standing on this stage would make a much better CiC than" Sanders or Clinton. @tedcruz #GOPDebate"I have the best temperament." @realDonaldTrump #GOPDebateBad advance #GOPDebate.@RealBenCarson had his chance to slug @tedcruz. Blew it. #GOPdebateAnd...They're off. Almost. #GOPdebate#ThanksYouGuys Future Fund attack against Kasich airing right before debate, calling him an "Obama Republican."
