11:18 am
the media in general. with this republican electorate, that's going to give him a boost. >> what about ben carson and donald trump? >> they are the two frontrunners by far and away. both of them got a lot of time to talk about their views but neither really changed their stance a lot. donald trump was notably very s subdued. he didn't attack very many of the other candidates, although he did complain about the format of the debate. other than a brief tussle with john kasich of ohio, he was pretty subdued. ben carson just kind of did his thing and was pretty calm throughout. >> is anybody calling either of them winners last night? >> i think there is a big consensus that one of the biggest winners was marco rubio and ted kasich is getting points for being really prepared to be president. >> who are the losers? >> the big loser has got to be jeb bush. he has been struggling in recent days.
