According to FOX, Carly Fiorina had a standout performance after missing the cut for the top tier of NBC's debate in August. She packed a lot of punch with her appeal to defund Planned Parenthood and with her retorts against Donald Trump.

CNN named her a winner as well, along with Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie. CNN pointed out her passionate battle against abortion and the round of zingers she flung at Trump. Rubio took a diplomatic approach when attacked by Trump and expressed a great passion for America and its future potential. Bush showed passion as well, especially when taking on Trump head-to-head, and elicited strong applause when defending his brother's actions to keep America safe.

But not everyone saw Fiorina's performance as the best of the night. A Drudge Report poll revealed Fiorina garnering 22% of respondents' support. Ted Cruz and Rubio got 6% each. However, in that poll, Trump blew all the other candidates away with an impressive 52%.
