10:32 pm
you were a judge you would score cruz and rube owe all the way. e i don't know if it was enough to shake the fans that donald trump has. all the other candidates besides trump need it. rube ohio and cruz seem to have the best shot and maybe maybe dethrowning trump.g what you struck me as well. they were pretty good on specifics, p was not. let's talk about trues, he seemed to me to have a pretty good night. cruz did have an excellent night. he was a harvard trained debater. he's had good debates all the way through.ough the only rap on him on tv is that his warmth doesn't come through on the camera the way rube owe's warmth does come through. he's not as personal. his facts and delivery wasy w always spot on and tonight was no exception. a big issue has been illegalal immigration and a p toic here ir the they were accusing trump of shifting positions on deportation, hiring people from
10:33 pm
from americans and we realizedzd that cnn and tell mood no parterred up for the debate, do you think that in any way hurts trump. the biggest issue tonight was immigration. they spent 40 minutes on immigration. no more than 15 minutes on any o other issue. it was big. telemundo was there. at one point donald trump was telling the full money dough m hostess that he had no absolutely no respect for them and at another point he said i love tell money dough. but he lost a lot of points on very specifics. mark owe rube owe viscerated him on a case back in new york where he hired illegal workers to build trump tower and wound up paying a million dollars fine on it.. of course the donald denied most it and then it became clear thah it actually happened. even though mark owe rube owewe and ted cruz are scoring points i don't know if

10:35 pm
did that exchange help rube ohil in any way in. >> it did and then there wasthen something that came after that, but the fact of the matter is rube ohio's line reminded me off the line back in gary heart and walter monday dale about where's the beef? where is your specifics, and the only specific that mr. trump had was that he was going to eliminate the state byb state marketing plans where you could market plans across states and h competition was somehow going to solve all the problemsl that and of course donald trump said he was going to regain the prohibition against excluding people with preexisting conditions. rube ohio and cruz both had a plethora of statistics. they rattle led them off. trump again had nothing.. it just, know, he just was not scoring the points.e but i think he held his people.p and you know what, we're not that far from super tuesday. how likely is it that the other candidates can kind of slow trump down after you see what yu happened tonight? >> we have 11 or 12 contests coming up on super tuesday. the only one that right now
