Trump falls, Fiorina rises in post-debate poll

Fiorina likes to say she “doubled the size” of HP while she was CEO from 1999 to 2005.


Woods has a history of political involvement, having previously endorsed presidential losers John McCain and Mitt Romney, which doesn’t bode especially well for Fiorina, but I’m sure her campaign advisors considered that.

We now have one colossal failure sitting in the White House. In many cases, our mothers are under-celebrated, overworked, diligent, tactful, logical and the target of reckless blame.

“I think on some level they wanted to have some kind of narrative”, Trump said.

Part of Fiorina’s appeal, at least among Republicans, is the thirst for an outsider. Generally respected by her male peers, Fiorina has only drawn limited criticism to date.

Driving Trump’s drop and Fiorina’s rise: a debate in which 31% of Republicans who watched said Trump was the loser, and 52% identified Fiorina as the victor. And I mean fired viciously. She was ultimately fired after clashing with directors who pressed her to share authority with subordinates.

Curiously, when the conversation turned to her spotty stewardship of the Hewlett-Packard technology company that eventually fired her, Ms. Fiorina shrugged it off with “Politics is so often a fact-free zone”. This is a commonplace event in corporate America.

“The hardest thing for a chief executive to do is to tell someone that they don’t have a job anymore”, Fiorina said this week on “Fox News Sunday“.

Sonnenfeld is a longtime critic of Fiorina’s performance as CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Her actions demonstrate that she was not vying for popularity but rather for smart growth and operating within realistic parameters. “Her mind is so quick, so facile”.

“We must invest more in the treatment of drugs”. Our mothers have our long-term interests at heart.

On Fox and Friends: “She was winning [in California] until they found out how bad she did in business and, frankly, she got wiped out and lost in a landslide”.

Fiorina was sacked. Trump has declared bankruptcy.

“George, you have raised the question“, Mr. Trump said. “Are we serious?”

The survey, conducted in the three days after 23 million people tuned in to Wednesday night’s GOP debate on CNN, shows that Trump is still the party’s front-runner with 24% support.


“She says the same thing over and over and over, but a lot of the people didn’t hear it in the debate, so they heard it for the first time“, Trump responded when Savannah asked him why he thought Carly was surging now. This time around, he’s calling her “robotic”, slamming the way she speaks. Fiorina placed second with 15 percent of the vote – achieving an impressive 12-percent point gain from early September. Then there was the $10 bill moment, in which candidates were asked to pick a woman whose likeness they would put on the bill. “I think that we can all rest assured that Hispanics can turn out in record numbers”. Which changes can this potentially deliver to the Trump-dominated primary?
