Sam, I have to admit, being a Democrat I watch those from the Dem. Party mostly, but I do pay attention to the results of the Republican debates, who did the best, what they said, and so on. I have a life long interest in our political process so I always pay attention in some way shape form or fashion.
I always like to watch candidates from both parities debate. The debates reveal more than just the politics of a candidate. I am an observer of body language and facial expressions, and a forum that requires unprepared (more or less) responses sometimes allows me to see more than just the words a candidate is speaking. Of course I practice the same thing when a politician gives a prepared speech.
I watch any debate I can, on both sides, to learn more about the candidates positions. I also look for attitudes, as expressed in body language of both those who speak and those who listen. I don't watch the commentary afterwards because I can make up my own mind without help from the analysts.

Why are Clinton and Trump the front runners this election year?I'm baffled. According to polls, 70% of Americans say we are headed in the wrong direction. Yet, we have Clinton ahead in the Democratic primary. More over, on the GOP side, this was supposed to be the year of the people against the...
