Tuesday night was the final Democratic Debate before the Iowa caucuses in February. As the candidate pool shrinks and the election approaches, campaign promises and ideas are beginning to take shape. But how did each candidate perform on Tuesday? Let's dive in:


Who spoke the most?

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were given a bit more time than the rest of the candidates as a dispute between the two occurred earlier in the week. Surprisingly, Amy Klobuchar spoke for longer than the projected-Democratic candidate Joe Biden.


Tracking sentiment

Elizabeth Warren was mentioned the most online during the debate as she gave the most quoted line of the night when she said, “Look at the men on this stage. Collectively they have lost 10 elections. The only people on this stage who have won every single election that they’ve been in are the women. Amy and me.”




Rushing to follow

Bernie Sanders by far gained the most followers on social media during and post-Democratic Debate. Elizabeth Warren, who had the most speaking time at the debate, gained very few social media followers in comparison.


Verbal attacks against President Trump

Despite a congressional push to limit the President's war powers since an attack in Iran earlier in the year, January's debate did not contain the highest number of attacks against President Trump.


Almost time for Iowa

Joe Biden continues to have the highest odds to win the Democratic nomination but Bernie Sanders' campaign continues to gain traction.
