CNBC Republican Presidential Debate November 9 Winners and Losers

I'm going to guess Rick Perry is in the loser column for this one. (WashingtonPost)

TFD Opinions: Republican Presidential Nomination Odds November 9

Change from October 12 in parentheses...

9. Rick Santorum 1% (0)- Nothing has changed in the last month. I suppose he might as well stay in the race because something crazy happens every week so you never know when it'll be your time.

7. Michele Bachmann 2% (-2)- After rising into the top tier in the summer, Rick Perry knocked her out and Herman Cain has kept her out. She's proven to be a sideshow and like Rick Santorum, she's there just to fill the stage and throw out crazy right wing talking points.
