In real estate, the old adage is that the three most important things when selling a house are location, location and location.
When it comes to presidential debates, the same is true. Where you stand on stage dictates your relative standing in the race — former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has moved from the fringes to center stage over the last few months, for example — and how much time you get to talk.
Below is a terrific chart the graphics wizards at the Post cooked up that shows where the candidates have stood on stage so far and how that correlates to how much they talk during the debate.
Check it out in advance of tonight’s Iowa presidential debate!
Since the Florida Republican presidential debate ended 12 hours ago, we’ve been reflecting on lessons learned from the night. (Man that looks WAY nerdier now that we see it written down.)
Our take on what we should take from the Tampa CNN/Tea Party Express debate is after the jump.
The fourth debate of the 2012 Republican presidential race is in the books!
After live-blogging the proceedings, we turn to our favorite part of any debate night: looking at who won and who lost.
And the Fix will be bringing every minute, no, every second of the action to you in our live-blog. We’ll pregame around 7:30 pm — warming up our typing fingers and comic stylings for the 8 p.m. kickoff. (Speaking of kickoffs, we will also keep an eye on the Patriots-Dolphins game that starts at 7 pm.)
Never participated in one of our live blogs before? (Shame!) We like to think of it as “Mystery Science Theater 3000” but for politics. And without the robots.
Join us. It’ll be fun. If not, we’ll give you your money back.
For the second time in five days, eight Republican candidates for president will gather on a debate stage — this time in the all-important state of Florida.
The proceedings get started at 8 pm eastern time on CNN and we will be live-blogging every minute of it right here! But, what do you do to kill time before tonight?
Never fear. Below you’ll find our Cliff Notes version of what you should watch for tonight. See you at 8!
