According to the latest exit polls out of New Hampshire, 54% of GOP voters said the recent debates were “important” in their candidate decision. Another 10% described the debates as “very important.” That is almost two-thirds of voters and probably bad news for Marco Rubio,  who not only had a very poor showing in the most recent debate, but was pummeled in the post-debate discussion, as well.

Trump boycotting the Fox News debate that took place a week prior might also prove consequential. However, by most accounts, he had a very good Saturday night.
