"It would take a venue that is 11 times the size of the Peace Center to hold everyone who tried to get a ticket through the lottery system. GOP leaders said the Peace Center isnít large enough, so the Republican National Committee decided not to go with a lottery system...Groover said supporters who work hard for the party will be rewarded tickets...Groover said he gave tickets to supporters, including elected officials, who work hard for the party. "You'll have a good mix of people who are donors, people who are donors and workers, and people who are just workers,Ē said Groover."

Loyal supporters of GOP granted tickets to debate in Greenville | Local News - WYFF Home

How does it make sense that when more people want tickets than there are seats the decision is NOT to go with a lottery?

There is a method to this madness. By limiting the number of tickets available the RNC can stack the audience with political insiders and important donors. Which means no Trump supporters, which I think was the point of the whole charade.

I expect loud cheering after every Rubio scripted answer (and Bush) and maybe a couple boos when Trump responds in kind.

Cheers and boos have no place in a debate, on either side. Looks like there will be more of it tonight.

At this point it doesn't matter. If Trump is booed, it won't change anything at all.

3 nights ago Trump held a rally right in this area and more than 10x the people showed up to see him.

Five years ago Kasich publicly called a cop who gave him a ticket an idiot, while speaking in front of a bunch of EPA reps. That was a deal breaker for me. Tonight Kasich had better go big or go home. I suggest he go home.

Kasich also wants to give amnesty to illegals:

John Kasich, Ohio governor, backs legal status for illegal immigrants - Washington Times

That alone is a deal breaker for me.

There is too much talk about who "does well".. when the truth is that
it's the ISSUES that are winning for Trump. People are ignoring the
Trump personality flaws they don't like but still supporting him because
of the ISSUES.

Again, Spot-on-target assessment. Exactly right ....the Strength is the key with the Donald. His Trumps the other Losers.
