CNN Arizona Debate 2-22-12 (John King)

Another day another debate. However, the CNN debate hosted in Arizona is the last prior to Super Tuesday, and could conceivably be the last one. I somehow doubt it, but it's conceivable.

Senator Rick Santorum received over 31% of the overall candidate speaking time with 24:57 (mm:ss) with Mitt Romney coming in behind just shy of 22 minutes. It should therefore come as no surprise that they both spoke the most often with 21 and 22 talking turns respectively, while Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich both spoke 15 turns each. The gap in turns can largely be found in the back and forth between Governor Romney and Santorum.


Total Talk %
Santorum 24:57 31.60%
Romney 21:49 27.64%
Gingrich 16:46 21.25%
Ron Paul 15:24 19.51%
Total 1:18:57 100.00%
*Note: This is uninterrupted talking time, except for audience cheer/applause in the middle of a response as this goes against their official response time.

Romney 22 30.14%
Santorum 21 28.77%
