So says a panel of conservative students at The College Fix. Aaron Marcus of Rutgers:
Romney stole this debate tonight by creating a stark contrast between himself and the indistinct Rick Perry. Romney has remarkably been able to shift the other Republican presidential candidates from focusing on Romneycare and onto Perry, regardless of policy. While Bachmann’s candidacy has become largely irrelevant, both she and Santorum took Perry to task on his in-state tuition law for illegal immigrants and failure to accept a protective fence along the American border with Mexico.
