Minutes Spoken by the Candidates in debate 2.1

Who talked the most during the first night of the second Democratic debate

Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders grabbed more airtime than the other candidates on Tuesday night, speaking for nearly 18 minutes apiece. From center stage, the pair fielded questions and defended their stances on liberal policies such as Medicare-for-all and the wealth tax. CNN moderators often pitted them against centrists like former Maryland congressman John Delaney and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, giving those outside candidates more talking time than would have been expected, given their position in the polls.
How each candidate stood out Tuesday night

Elizabeth Warren
The Massachusetts senator with the “I have a plan for that” catchphrase is faring well in early state and national polls, detailing ambitious plans to eradicate student debt, institute Medicare-for-all and reduce the influence of money in politics.

She spent much of Tuesday night fending off critiques from moderate candidates and showing unity with Bernie Sanders. And she chastised John Delaney for “using Republican talking points” and suggesting she offered “impossible promises” and “fairy-tale economics.”

“You know, I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States, just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for,” Warren said.

1. This debate was much better than the previous two

 

The moderators controlled the debate well and brought in a lot of the "outfield" in ways that contrasted well. There wasn't as much of the candidated talking over each other. Plus, the audience was much better behaved.

2. Warren was being attacked the most by CNNs questions to Delaney - debate allows

 

For rebuttals. CNN deliberately targeted Warren, IMO, framing their questions to others as an open door to attack her with GOP talking points.

Still....she persisted.
