GOP Debate’s Audience

Watching tonight’s GOP Debate, I was stunned at how slanted the audience appeared to be in favor of the RINO candidates, especially Rubio.

As with a previous GOP debate, which Trump pointed out at the time, the audience was stacked with donor class activists.

Probably the most striking example of the evening was when Cruz, criticizing Rubio, vocalized how he stood with Sen. Sessions to stop the Gang of Eight bill.

The audience literally began booing loudly.

Cruz was reflecting sentiments that a silent majority in Alt-Right America believe in… and the donor class ‘Republican’ audience was loudly booing.

UPDATE (2/14/16): From Breitbart:

GREENVILLE, South Carolina — The chairman of the local Republican Party here confirmed to local television that 2016 frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump’s concerns—and those of his closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) – with the Republican National Committee (RNC) allocation of debate audience tickets are well-placed…

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said another source in the audience, someone who has attended several of the GOP debates. That source said the anti-Trump and anti-Cruz audience members—who were thoroughly cheering for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and his mentor former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush when they made passionate cases for amnesty for illegal aliens, something entirely non-representative of South Carolina’s electorate—were behaving unlike any audience he’d ever seen in his lifetime of attending GOP presidential debates…

Trump’s and Cruz’s concerns are even being confirmed by many across the political spectrum. In fact, even the left-of-center Huffington Post confirms that the RNC’s ticket allocation system seems to have been “behind” the excessive and unwarranted booing of Trump and Cruz—and cheering of the donor class supported Rubio and Bush.

Vox, another left-of-center outlet, ran a headline that made it even clearer: “The Republican establishment packed the debate audience with Donald Trump haters.” In the piece, author German Lopez noted that the audience’s pro-Rubio and pro-Bush cheering was “very peculiar” as was the booing of Trump and Cruz.
