SALUTE: The 24 million viewers of both minor & main GOP Debates hosted by Fox News Thursday evening was the largest ever in terms of cable programming & seems like it is trying to tell me something. But that something is not clear & I want it to be. I want to know the implications of what it means. I want to plug the results into my crystal ball & see what it shows me down the road. I will also juxtapose this data to past, similar events & their geo-political context to results then.
OUTREACH: I am asking intellectuals & fellow academics to help me 'fast-track' the below research question. The effort to fast track in this manner is a first for me & I hope it's good for you too. Let me know how I can improve my performance for the next time.
SCOPE/Guidance: The 24 million viewers is the focus. What it meant that this many watched? Who were they? Who didnt watch?*
*Is this counter-scope? I see the 'didnt watch"ers as helping to clarify who did watch. Sense?
[ ] Technical critique of key players is not a focus of effort. Why? Because it is already being swarmed upon:

[ ] Not interested in general MSM analysis or key propagandists musings, except that I understand that even blind squirrels trip over nuts....sometimes. If amongst all the Left's noise a scrap of insight was stumbled upon then as objective truthseekers will file these as 'exceptions' & table them for consideration.
Administration: I will work the submitted comments chronologically, organize, fact check & incorporate.
Lets get started! Im excited!
