Did Donald Trump Win The First GOP Debate 2015? Yup, And Here Is The Evidence

Some say Donald Trump won the first ever GOP debate 2015 for the US Elections in 2016. We saw an evidence. Here it is.

The first GOP debate was one heck of a show. There were funny and angry moments. But who came victorious as the final remarks were spoken and the candidates went down from their pulpits?

Some say it’s Donald Trump.

Did Presidential Candidate Donald Trump win the first GOP Debate?

In terms of airtime, yes.

It was Washington Post that observed this. Trump’s total airtime was a total of 10.5 minutes, and it’s more than enough to get the ire and support from a lot of people. Rosie O’Donnell included.

The next in terms of air time usage was Jeb Bush, who spoke for more than 8-something minutes.

The loser for airtime was Rand Paul with a small chunk of only 5 minutes in the entire two-hour debate on Fox News.

But it was Ben Carson, who spoke of losing out. When finally asked a question, he was grateful to the moderator.

“I wasn’t sure I was going to get to talk again,” he said.
