The post-debate backlash against Donald Trump continues to grow, other candidates like Fiorina and Kasich seek to capitalize on their strong performances. There’s also word that the Trump campaign is in disarray with the most recent evidence of that being the firing (says Trump) or resignation (says Stone), depending on who you listen to, of Senior Political Adviser Roger Stone. Steve analyzes all this, pointing out that what’s happening to Trump is an inevitable part of the ‘media primary’ in which leading candidates are subject to greater scrutiny and tougher questioning. Mary gives you the latest blow-by-blow in Trump’s battle with Fox Anchor Megyn Kelly, with the Donald holding his ground and still refusing to issue an apology.

Moving on from last night, what’s next for the GOP candidates? And on the Democrats’ front: the release of their own debate schedule on Thursday prompted so pretty harsh comments from candidate and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley’s campaign: “… it seems geared toward limiting debate and facilitating a coronation, not promoting a robust debate and primary process.”
