Who Won the Fox News-Google GOP Debate in Iowa?

Focus Group Reveals Their Big Winner of Thursday's GOP Debate

Who won the Fox News-Google GOP debate last night in Des Moines, Iowa?

While pundits picked out their regular winners and losers, it seemed another kind of victory was quickly beginning to form – much of which had nothing to do with national policy.

Fox News’ resident cyber guy Kurt Knutsson joined Fox and Friends this morning to deliver the latest.

On Twitter, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz dominated the conversation at a quarter of the candidates’ interactions, while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul pulled in shares of 20 and 16 percent respectively.

But when it came to the volume of good things being said about each candidate – Rand Paul topped the charts, said Knutsson.


And just when we thought we’d seen it all, another Paul-related hashtag started to trend – and it wasn’t #StandwithRand.


Enter #Randgirling, a rallying force uniting Sen. Paul’s likely most ardent supporters.
