McGuinness Won The Audience But Did He Win The Debate?

The audience poll results are in from Vincent Brown’s Presidential Debate on TV3, and though entirely unscientific, they show Martin McGuinness way out in front, leaving the rest as also-rans. It remains to be seen whether the same will be true at the ballot box in a few weeks time but undoubtedly some optimistic news for a candidate receiving saturation opposition from the political and media establishment in Ireland.

As for the debate itself, Brown did sterling work marshalling what was at times a chaotic spectacle, with the candidates eager to get their points across. His quizzing of the candidates, particularly McGuinness, Norris, Davis and Mitchell, was well done and an exercise in the sort of informed journalism that we have come to expect from him. If you missed the broadcast watch it here.
