Donald Trump, Ted Cruz continue newfound feud
USA Today - 01/15/2016
The smaller stage may have sharpened the exchanges among candidates in the sixth debate of the Republican campaign, said Alan Schroeder, a debate scholar at Northeastern University and the author of Presidential Debates: 50 Years of High-Risk TV.
Trump probably had his best debate of the campaign, Schroeder said, while Cruz seemed ill-prepared for the questions about his birthplace and comments about New York.
“Obviously, it was a very lively debate,” Schroeder said. “As you get closer to the voting, things get a little more tense.”
