That thing, you know, the “debate”…. says 24 million people watched at least part of the Republican “debate” on Thursday night on Fox News. That’s 24,000,000 adults, about 10 percent of the grown-up population of the United States.

So, how do we assess the performance of the 10 wannabe nominees?

My guess is that about 14 people thought the whole debate was a worthwhile exercise in real-life politics that helped inform some of the electorate in useful ways about the substantial issues in public policy that must be addressed by our elected leaders.

My guess is that the other 23,999,986 viewers had other opinions.

A different debate, different time....
