After the first GOP Presidential debates a few things were clear; Carly Fiorina dominated the early debate and Donald Trump was not ready for the pressure of the 2nd debate.
In the after show on Fox News, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer declared the age of Trump “over.”
“The real story is the collapse of Trump in this debate… The fact is he was out of place… When he can go on on his own and ramble, he is entertaining, sharp and amusing, but here when he is controlled in a tight setting he was lost for most of the debate.”
Similarly, the Fox News focus group felt that Trump “crashed and burned” in the first debate.
Will the missteps during the debate cost Trump the GOP presidential lead? We’ll soon find out.
