Sparks flew at the Facebook/NBC News “Meet the Press” Republican Candidates debate ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. But will the drama affect the outcome of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary?
The GOP candidates are getting ready to rumble this weekend in New Hampshire at the presidential primary debate streaming on Facebook through a partnership with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” presidential primary debate.
The economy and the U.S. budget deficit top the list of concerns for voters on Facebook, with some regional variations.
The next Republican debate will live stream on Facebook January 8, two days before the first presidential primary in New Hampshire.
The “Meet the Press” weekly web show “Press Pas,” discussed whether debates matter on the Facebook D.C. page this afternoon, but sidestepped what we think is a more interesting topic: the role that the social network plays before, during and after a debate.
NBC News’ Meet the Press and Facebook are joining forces again, this time to present a cross-platform debate between the Republican presidential candidates on the Sunday before the 2012 New Hampshire primary.
