How Long Each Candidate Spoke During the Fourth Democratic Debate
Bernie Sanders dominated the fourth Democratic debate on Sunday night — and the speaking time shows it. For the first time, he spoke more than front-runner Hillary Clinton. Find all of our coverage from the fourth debate here: http://bit.ly/1nd7RKJ
- •Sanders: 30:12
- •Clinton: 27:31
- •O'Malley: 14:29
- •Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley came in a distant third, which isn't likely to help a candidate who began his remarks Sunday night by reminding the audience of his name.
- •Sanders' increased speaking time came as he's climbing in the polls and appearing to pose a real threat to Clinton in the Iowa caucuses. Viewers who missed the past three Democratic debates and who tuned in for the first time saw in Sanders a sharper, more detailed, still combative candidate — and one who was getting a lot of airtime.
