Mitt Romney 10.1 minutesI don't know what it means, but for me it felt like my favorite Romney was short changed on time and Bachmann was talking all night.
Michele Bachmann 10.0 minutes
Ron Paul 9.7 minutes
Tim Pawlenty 9.4 minutes
Rick Santorum 9.2 minutes
Newt Gingrich 8.7 minutes
Herman Cain 7.7 minutes
Jon Huntsman 7.2 minutes
The top five candidates in terms of air time -- Romney, Bachmann, Paul, Pawlenty, and, yes, Santorum -- were all within one minute of each other over the course of a two-hour debate. Newt Gingrich got a bit less, and Herman Cain and Jon Huntsman did lag a bit. But part of that was due to their own choice to give shorter answers. Mitt Romney was asked 12 questions; Herman Cain was asked 11. Some of the difference in air times had to do with the relative aggressiveness of the candidates.
Was I in a time warp during some of the debate last night? Or was it a case that when Romney spoke time flied, Bachmann, not so much.
