December 07, 2023

NEVADA, Iowa — After every presidential debate, CNN talks to a panel of eight Republican Iowa voters about who won and why.

Last night, Nikki Haley won the panel with six votes. Trump and DeSantis received one vote apiece. Watch below.

"Who thinks Christie won the debate? Zero of the eight. Who thinks DeSantis won the debate? One of the eight. Who thinks Haley won the debate? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Who thinks Ramaswamy won the debate? Zero."

"We have six people here who've picked Haley. So that's the second time Haley's won a commanding victory this time in the four debates we've been here."

"I expected her to take a lot of hits tonight and the debate started with them coming after her and I think she handled it really well. I think she also just is strong on policy."

"She had to dodge a lot of bullets tonight and she stood up to each one of them."

"I think people shoot arrows at the people that are winning. And I think she's winning."

"Every hit that she took, she had a response back."

"Everyone was after her tonight in the debate. And I think she handled that with grace and charisma and was the most level-headed and stuck to her guns."

"Her foreign policy experience really showing through strong tonight. And the fact that she's been a governor too, so she's got that legislative experience too, working with the legislators in South Carolina. So I think she shined among them all."
