    First GOP debate in the books.  Very squabbly and snippy.
     
     
    My big takeaway from watching the whole thing live: The crowd, and the GOP base, belongs to Trump.  Any anti-Trump sentiment was met with immediate and loud booing
     
     
    Second takeaway: DeSantis is done.   He was a non-factor. I thought the other candidates would spend time attacking him, but they mostly ignored him … and Ron did nothing for himself.
     
     
     
     
    The moderators didn’t cut it.  The crowd was loud the whole time despite admonition and the candidates just yammered over each other and over the set time limits.  Very chaotic to watch.
