Jon Stewart Takes On GOP Debate In New Hampshire, Compares Candidates' Answers (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday night's "Daily Show" focused on the second debate between the GOP's potential Presidential candidates, this time taking place on CNN instead of Fox News.

In this "Indecision 2012" segment, Stewart is able to grade Santorum, Bachmann, Pawlenty, Gingrich, Romney, Cain, and Paul on their answers to the typical questions at every early debate.

First there was the "comparing of the Christmas cards" as Stewart put it, where the candidates list all their children and describe their families in the noblest of lights (except Newt Gingrich). Stewart declared Michele Bachmann the "winner" with her five children and 23 foster kids. No argument here.

Naturally all this baby talk led to the discussion of being pro-life, which of course pretty much all of them are. In fact, everyone was agreeing so much up until this point that Stewart wondered if anyone would get tripped up or just adhere to the same ideologies. Libertarian Ron Paul soon put that to rest by offering a long, rambling, political answer to the question of whether or not undocumented injured children should receive emergency care.

"I'm sorry Congressman Paul, the correct answer is 'Yes,'" Stewart said.

Watch the full segment below to hear why Stewart calls Mitt Romney the debate's "alpha candidate," and how moderator John King decided the debate was a complete success due to how much attention it got on Twitter.
