Tonight on AC360: Special post-debate show

With 50 winner-take-all delegates, the Florida primary could be a game-changer in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. That makes tonight’s debate - hosted by CNN, the Republican Party of Florida and the Hispanic Leadership Network - crucial to the candidates’ fight to the top. It’s one last opportunity for a face-to-face showdown before Tuesday’s vote.

Tune in for the debate at 8 p.m. ET on CNN, and don’t miss Anderson’s post-debate show for the best recap and analysis. Also, don’t forget to send your questions for the candidates by using #CNNDebate on Twitter.

    Its such a sad time for the Nation. Nobody seems to know what they are doing, Maybe they should have cloned our forefathers. Now would be an excellent time to bring them back. Im sure they have some answers. Elected government officials have made a mess of things. I wish they could bring back president Clinton. He was an excellent president and did so much for this nation.

    I understand that CNN doesn't think Ron Paul can or should win. I also understand that the GOP establishment feels the same way. However, it does a great disservice to CNN's reputation and a news organization as well as to the marketplace of ideas in the US when you virtually ignore his performance.
    I'm a Democrat, and I have watched the GOP debates in bits and pieces. I was blown away to hear Dr. Paul talk about Latin America, and Cuba in particular, in the way that he did in the Jacksonville debate. Even "liberals" aren't brave enough to give opinions that differ from the majority on those issues.
    Please devote a more equitable amount of time to Dr. Paul, especially on the issues where his opinions truly stand out from the pack. Remember, no one paid any attention to Pres. Obama's campaign at first, either! Also, even though Dr. Paul may not become president, that doesn't mean that his ideas won't continue to inspire, particularly that elusive demographic: young people.

    No one has mentioned the thing that most impressed me in the debate tonight. When Ron Paul pointed out that Newt Gingrich's claim to balancing four consecutive budgets was done at the expense of the Social Security Trust Fund. Newt didn't know how to react.....I believe he said well that's how it was measured then? Gingrich has been boasting about balancing the budget since entering the race. Applauds to Ron Paul for exposing him!

    I cannot believe that your channel has the gall to call the show tonight a "debate". Your moderators were too interested in picking on the nit picking that is going on between Romney and Gingrinch. To hell with what they say about each other... I want to know what the sam hill they are going to do for this country, not what they are going to do to each other with speeches and ads throughout the state. For crying out loud you are suppose to be a news organization and you allow your weak kneed underlings ask dumb, really dumb questions of the candidates instead of seeking the answers to real issues. I would guarantee that none of your staff (CNN staff) would ask such ignorant questions of Barack Obama; although there are plenty to ask. Then you all discuss this so called "debate" about all the mud slinging but I seldom hear you discuss the answers of real issues at hand, and God knows there are plenty that this current President have developed for this country to contend with. Can you not have a real debate instead of the joke I saw tonight???

    Kudos to Wolf when Newt tried his grandstanding by slamming the media. He directed him right back to the question and its relevance.

    I think the narrator was overly agressive toward Newt – he just kept hammering away at Newt even after the audience booed him – Was the low point of debate – Wolf must really hate Newt and it showed in his attitude and questions in this debate tonight.
