The second GOP debate happened last night, and hours later, the entire race has changed.
Earlier today, we reported that Donald Trump had been declared the undisputed winner of the debate. However, there is someone gaining on the frontrunner who nobody saw coming. According to Drudge, Carly Fiorina is now polling in second place after the debate, coming in at 20%.
Though she is still way behind Trump, who is currently polling in at 54%, this has been quite a comeback for a woman who didn’t even make the top ten for the first debate a few weeks ago. While Trump’s numbers are plateauing, Fiorina’s are getting bigger and bigger everyday, and her performance in last night’s debate definitely helped her cause.
Though all the candidates were trying to attack Trump last night, Fiorina is arguably the only one who got anywhere. Fiorina was able to go toe to toe with Trump, proving that she is a strong leader who is not someone who can be messed with. This is in stark contrast to Jeb Bush, who looked weak and pathetic as he tried to take on Trump.
While Trump is still the undisputed frontrunner, he now has himself some competition. It’s safe to say he didn’t see Fiorina coming, but he’s definitely paying attention to her now!
