GOP Candidates See Spike in Support, Donations After Fox News Debates
Several Republican presidential candidates are seeing a significant spike in support following the first two debates of the 2016 campaign.
"I think for many people this was the first time they saw there's another woman running for president and she's actually pretty good," Carly Fiorina told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." "So, we've certainly seen an uptick in financial support. We’ve seen an uptick in support generally, and so it’s very exciting."
On "The Five," Brian Kilmeade said that he thought Fiorina did a great job during the debate of answering why she fired 30,000 people while she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard and why she was fired herself. He said that dealing with those tough questions now will mean she won't have to worry about them later.
Rand Paul, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were among the other candidates who reported recent increases in donations and social media followers.
Eric Bolling pointed out, on the other hand, that Jeb Bush and Scott Walker have seen a slight dip in the polls since the Fox News primetime debate. He wondered if that could affect their ability to raise money.
