Fox News Debate Failed in Candidate Face Time Matching Poll Standings
Fox News and Google purported to have a novel approach that would remedy the criticisms from past Republican Debates, where they have became a two-man Romney/Perry show. Although the other candidates stand on the stage, they do not receive the same attention as the mainstream media front runners. Rep. Ron Paul has been placing third in most polls, but he’s not receiving the proximate attention for the candidate down one from the Top Two. For that matter, other than Romney/Perry, follow up questions have not occurred.
Wes Hemings has analyzed “face time” statistics of the debates. He anticipated that their permitted debate participation would reflect polling popularity. What he found was that Rep. Paul came in next to last in speaking time at the debate.
