The GOP presidential hopefuls and the MSNBC moderators shared the same view on one thing- this debate was about Governor Perry. A little more than I would have expected. Perry’s name was mentioned 25% more times than Obama’s and nearly double the amount of any other single candidate.
To give you some visual perspective, the word cloud shows how often Perry’s name was mentioned compared to everyone else.
Both the moderators and his opponents gave Perry a leg up in the number of times he spoke. The moderators gave him more questions and his opponents attacked him which provided the opportunity for Perry to respond.
