4:01 am
well, good morning. the political dust settling after last night's third republican presidential debate. the mood, much more confrontational than in previous debates. maybe it was because the first primary and caucus is less than four months away. >> not that far away anymore. one of the sharpest face-offs was between florida rivals marco rubio and jeb bush, and there was no love lost between front-runners donald trump and ben carson. abc's bazi kanani joining us now with "your voice, your vote" from washington. bazi, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, kendis. good morning, reena. the establishment candidates who are trailing in the polls hoped this debate would help them pick up steam against the outsiders dominating the race. >> folks, we got to wake up. >> reporter: right from the start the front-runners donald trump and ben carson come under attack. >> we are on the verge perhaps of picking someone who cannot do this job. >> reporter: then a classic trump counterpunch against ohio
4:02 am
governor john kasich. >> but then his poll numbers tanked. he's got -- that's why he's on the end, and he got nasty, and he got nasty, so you know what, you can have him. >> reporter: the real estate mogul further blasting kasich for his ties to failed wall street firm lehman brothers and another sparring match as jeb bush goes after first year senator marco rubio for missing senate votes to campaigns. >> marco, when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term, and you should be showing up to work. >> someone has convinced you that attacking me is going to help you. >> reporter: rubio defended his voting record with a comparison to john mccain and others who missed votes during presidential campaigns. new jersey governor chris christie drew applause for his slam on a question about regulating betting for fantasy football. >> we have -- wait a second. we have $19 trillion in debt. we have people out of work. we have isis and al qaeda attacking us, and we're talking about fantasy football. can we stop?

tax plans, they found agreement on one thing, ted cruz vents their shared frustration with the moderators. >> this is not a cage match. how about talking about the substantive issues people care about? [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and republican party leaders are also bashing the moderators and their network for questions they claim were aimed at stirring up those stage fights and not focused on policy. the candidates will face off again in less than two weeks. reena, kendis. >> bazi, do we know if cnbc has responded to the criticism from the rnc? >> yeah, the network has issued a terse reply, a statement that simply says, "people who want to be president should be able to answer tough questions." >> and they certainly were some really tough questions there last night. abc's bazi kanani joining us from washington. bazi, thank you. well, among the candidates there were some breakouts and some bruises during the debate. >> yeah, here's abc's political analyst matthew dowd's take. >> reporter: i think marco rubio was the number one winner. i also thought ted cruz won
4:04 am
especially among other republican base, and i thought john kasich did well. big loser was jeb. big winner was probably marco rubio. ben carson and donald trump seemed to disappear from the stage, especially donald trump. he seemed to not really be much involved in the debate and his answers were sort of the same things everybody has heard before, so i think it's interesting where the folks that hold 50% of the vote basically disappeared from the stage. >> interesting. >> and it seems marco rubio spurred curiosity among voters as well. >> according to google trends rubio was the most searched candidate on the internet during the debate followed by carson, trump, cruz and kasich. and democratic front-runner hillary clinton sending this text message to supporters after the debate, "so much talk, so little substance, makes me want to go out and do something. see you on the trail." and stay with abc news live team coverage later this
