Curious who won the Republican debate? Let’s ask Politico’s “GOP Insiders.”

This recurring feature offers a fascinating window into how Republican elites view the debates. The headline this morning was this: “Rubio shined in Vegas.”

On November 11, it was: “Rubio wins, Kasich bombs.”

On October 29: “Bush bombed, Rubio won.”

On September 17: “Carly crushed it.” 

On August 7: “Trump is biggest loser.”

So there you have it. After Trump basically showed himself the exit and Fiorina enjoyed a frisson of establishment support, it’s been Rubio in a landslide.
