Fiorina Fundraising Spikes After Debate

by JOEL GEHRKE A | National Review  |  published on August 10, 2015

Claiming a spike in fundraising since Thursday night’s debate, Carly Fiorina threw a punch at Donald Trump while also making an appeal to voters currently inclined to support him. “We certainly have seen an uptick in financial support.

We’ve seen an uptick in support generally and so, it’s very exciting,” Fiorina told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. “We’re going to talk to as many people as we can through every medium there is. I will continue to do what I’ve done from day one. I will answer any question. I will talk to anyone. I’m not afraid to talk about anything.The more people get to know me, the more people support me. So, that’s what we’re going to keep doing.”

NBC conducted an online survey that suggests Fiorina and Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) were the two candidates who gained the most support from their debate performances, although Trump still led the field. “Twenty-two percent said Fiorina won or had the best performance in the debate, followed by 18 percent who said Trump had the best performance,” per MSNBC. “However, another 29 percent said Trump did the worst in the debate, clearly showing how polarizing he is. When the candidates’ negative performance percentages are subtracted from their positive percentages, Fiorina notched a positive 20, whereas Trump scored a negative 11.”

    Fiorina should have kept her mouth shut. I personally think she’s an Est. Rep. And I especially don’t like her ties with McCain. And since she did such a crappy job with HP, what makes anyone think she can be president?

  • MarcJ

    Fiorina declared that “Hillary lied about Benghazi and lied about her e-mails” and that was the most impressive declaration by anybody on that panel. Trump showed himself to be a stupid loudmouth – another low-IQ bloviating gasbag.

    People need to learn from past elections. Don’t go by what they say. check them out. Carly sounded great. Loved it. Until I saw her record at H.P. and they fired her fast while they still had a company left. Not only that even worse who she is affiliated with even now. She is not what she seems. Ifshe gets in you have a continuation of what we have now. Do your home work . Some have and they put it out there on line for all to see.

    …”But I digress, at this point she pretty much spoke glowingly about Muslims writing love poems and star gazing. But then she tells the assembled audience that Islam has “paved the way for space travel and exploration.” I believe an Italian named Galileo, and a Pole named Copernicus just may disagree.”
    Check her out before making any decisions. I personally think, shes an Est. Rep..especially if she’s hanging around McCain.

      KDC, you’re confusing the libs with facts. That just won’t do (for libs, sarcasm alert).

  • KDC

    “Since then, Fiorina has capitalized off her controversial image by writing a book and becoming involved in conservative politics. Recently, John McCain took her under his wing as campaign chairman. But nobody whines about the fake “fiscal cliff” better than failed GOP candidate and “19th Worst CEO of All Time” CEO Carly Fiorina.” So what other Est. Rep., NWO ties does she have?

  • Alberto Quintana

    Let us know who Carly Fiorina really is. She prased Islam. To hell with her.

  • Wayne Rosenkrantz

    Fiorina has made statements praising islam. ‘Nuff said.

      I saw about half of the early debate and like what I heard from Fiorina. I am looking into her now for the pros and cons. I had not heard that. Do you have any sources for that. I want to be as accurate as I can on all of the candidates so that my vote goes to the most pro American, pro Constitution, pro Military candidate. Thanks in advance my friend.

      • Joan C Maxwell

        Then you want to read this 7papa7 and all others who think Carly is so great.

        • Lorene B

          Thank you Joan, I thought she did a fantastic job in the debate, but just goes to show a good talker can be just a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

      • Wayne Rosenkrantz

        It was on an article on Yahoo news about a week ago. I didn’t save it.

        • 7papa7

          I will try and find it. Remember Yahoo is very very liberal and was a strong obama supporter. Thanks for the info.

    • hiway280z

      worse than that do research she talks good but is one of them. There in case their chosen dem loses they want their own in and she is it.

    BS, According to Pamela Geller, Fiorina is on the south side of knowing anything about Islam. If a candidate is not well versed about Islam, Then they won’t have a clue as to what to do. All this talk about illegal aliens is a diversionary tactic as to what is really happening as far as immigration is concerned.

    I just read where Obama doesn’t think voter fraud happens in America, and when you go to vote, you don’t have to show an I.D. that you’re an American citizen and have the right to vote. I recently read an article by a London reporter who investigated a house that apparently had 200 voters living there. And what happened when he knocked on the door and asked the occupant, he was set upon and kicked and brutally beat up by the occupants. And there weren’t 200 of them.

    They keep importing 100-300K Muslims per year to suck our social resources dry and cause nothing but trouble. And random “lone wolf” terrorists who are orchestrated from Yemen, Qatar, Iran, Iraq.

    That wasn’t a debate…far from it.

  • enubus

    I liked her preparedness and her presence, but after jumping on the Trump bashing bandwagon, she is permanently off my list. wait until her problems with HP comes out, and she couldn’t even beat the dummy Barbara Boxer.

  • Dave In Arizona

    Go Carly!

    • Joan C Maxwell

      Read this, then tell me “Go Carly”

      • Dave In Arizona

        Joan, made it to ‘Lucent which means “light-bearing” in Latin, also has the connotation of Lucifer, “the light bearer”…’ Really?

        Yes, go Carly!

      • Lorene B

        Fiorina is off my list as well as rino Graham, Bush, the two ineligibles, Cruz and Rubio, also Huckabee who sided with Kelly in the Trump-Kelly thing. Christie is just not presidential.

  • Walt

    The Constitution should be amended to incorporate a written contract between the president elect and the American people to read, “If the president elect does not fulfill or attempt to fulfill his campaign promises, he should be removed from his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution and the American people of the United States forthwith”. I know it would never happen, but we live in fantasyland anyway and sometimes it’s nice to dream!

    • reggie

      It can be done. He can be impeached. However, when we have gutless pansies like bone, mccriminal et. al, ain’t gonna happen.

    • Alberto Quintana

      If your dream make sence, then what you need to do is to promote it. God speaks to us while we are dreaming.

  • Lindy

    After seeing her defend Kelly and praising Islam, I wouldn’t give this woman the time of day.

    Lots of people are losing their minds over Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, but apart from her terrible record at Hewlett Packard, the 60-year-old seems to believe the Islamic Ottoman Empire civilization was the greatest in the world.

    Americans, and people in general, often have short memories. This is why it is important to remind people of those who are asking for your vote. While the majority of Democrats at the federal level are not worth mentioning simply because they are so far from being worthwhile candidates, those that claim they love the Constitution and America under the Republican banner should warrant extra scrutiny. Fiorina is one of these candidates.

    In a speech that was given a mere two weeks after Islamic jihadists attacked America, the former HP chief executive officer gave a speech on technology, business and our way of life. She concluded her speech with the following:

    There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

    It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

    One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization’s commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

    And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

    Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

    When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

    While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

    Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.

    Though Fiorina did acknowledge Christianity and Judaism in culture, she did not call them “a civilization that was the greatest in the world.” She failed to recognize the long track record of Islam and its culture in the Middle East. In fact, understanding that we are a Christian nation, one would think that she would reference the rich heritage of Europe or even our early founding, but instead, two weeks after Islamists attacked America, she decided to praise the culture that spawned them.


  • Bernie Lounds

    I agree with libsrtheh8ters whole heartily.

  • libsrtheh8ters

    Fiorina had the advantage of being in the first debate where Hemmer & McCallum acted like moderators not character assassins like Kelly, Wallace & Baier. Fiorina was allowed to answer political questions & talk about her campaign platform. Had the other Republicans been able to do the same we would probably have a much better idea what they stand for & their ideas to save this country. The main Fox “debate”/all you could eat Republican character assassination was no different than every Republican debate for the past 25 years, smears, lies & attacks by leftist media elites & ZERO substance because of it.
    When Chelsea Clinton PRAISES Fox News that tells you everything you need to know about their so called debate.

    • Dave In Arizona

      Was very disappointed by the Fox News trio. The debates were “balanced” but some how “fair” got lost along the way.

    • molly kennedy

      I thought Hemmer & McCallum showed class as moderators, the other 3 acted like ring masters in a dog and pony show.
