    So if the candidates revolt against the RNC and its formats for the debates are they asking for a brokered convention next year? If Trump or Carson keeps on being ahead in the polls and even wins in the primaries but the RNC believes that either cannot win the general election, will the RNC let the Convention choose a candidate that they think can win? Will all of this BS we are going through be for nothing but unfavorable publicity?

    Any person can run for Public office, but if they donít have the backing of a party and its rules committee and its cover then they will not go very far.

    The RNC has a tiger by the tail, but the candidates cannot go too far without its help. Fun stuff to watch.

    Now it appears that the networks PAY the RNC for the privilege of putting on a debate. Is that correct? If so, does the network get to set the agenda, pick the moderators, and plan the questions? The RNC is already blocking some moderators and even some left wing networks, so does a network have to be really careful about what sorts of questions they ask? Some are already suggesting that the NBC group of networks will be excluded from hosting debates next cycle.

    Sure, the RNC could have demanded more conservatives ask questions, but that in turn requires conservatives willing to help foot the bill for the debates. The RNC cannot actually tell a network shelling out a few million dollars that the network must turn over moderating to outsiders who havenít paid a dime. And while I too would prefer more conservatives, remember how many conservatives asked questions in the 2012 debates? Yeah, me neither.

    The reality is that no one will ever be pleased with the debates. There will always be some grievance. But we should not forget just how truly bad so many of the debates were in 2012 ó so much worse than either the Fox News or CNN debate this year. There was one debate in 2012 that required an advanced cable package just to watch it and the whole thing was a farce then.

    Yes, the CNBC debate was terrible. Yes, John Harwood should have been blocked as George Stephanopoulos was. Yes, NBC and its sister stations should never, ever host a GOP Primary debate again. But donít deny that weíve only had really one truly terrible debate this year compared to a few thousand in 2012. And donít deny that there are more conservatives participating now than in 2012. And most of all, donít deny that it has been to our candidatesí benefit that the RNC has told various left-wing networks to get lost when it would have been impossible for the individual candidates to do it.

        That's my biggest fear. I just hope Trump smart enough to resize it would be giving the election away and enough of a Republican to put the ideals he claims to hold above his personal desire to run.

              It appears that Rubio was the big winner from the debate (if that could be called a debate).

              THE EDGE: RUBIO ROCKETS IN MEDIA MENTIONS AFTER DEBATE
              In the first measurement of which candidates have driven the discussion following the third debate, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has had a breakout moment. Rubio posted the largest single gain of any candidate so far in The Edge from the New Analytics Company.

              The Edge is a one-of-a-kind measurement from the New Analytics that ďscrubsĒ television, radio, print, internet and social media for mentions of the 2016 candidates. It is not a public opinion survey, but the team at New Analytics believes that The Edge provides a way to show changes in the race before polls can reflect them. The data are compiled into a single score and provided to Fox News First. You can view the full results here.
