The four remaining Republican presidential candidates will meet to debate for the 12th time Thursday in an event that will stream live from the University of Miami — a debate that Republican party leaders hope will unfold in a more dignified fashion than last week’s debate, which made headlines for the non-stop insults traded by the candidates, especially frontrunner Donald Trump and Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and was especially noteworthy for a section in which Trump discussed the size of his penis.
The bizarre remarks came in response to a jibe from Rubio about the allegedly small size of Trump’s hands, made earlier in the week by Rubio.
“Look at those hands, are they small hands?” said Donald Trump — who appears increasingly likely to become the Republican party’s nominee for president. “And, he referred to my hands — ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”

But the attacks on Trump proved a failure when the March 5 primary and caucus slate rolled around, as Trump cruised to easy victories in the Michigan and Mississippi primaries, as well as the Hawaii Republican caucus, losing only the Idaho primary, where Ted Cruz emerged as the top finisher.
The voting on Tuesday left Trump 99 delegates ahead of second-place Cruz and, with 458, nearly one-third of the way to the total of 1,435 required to win the Republican nomination on the first ballot at the party’s 2016 convention, which opens July 18 in Cleveland, Ohio.
With five more primaries coming up on “Super Tuesday Two,” March 15 — including the big prize: Florida with its 99 winner-take-all delegates, as well as Ohio with 66, also winner-take-all — Trump could effectively lock up the nomination with another dominant performance.
Did Donald Trump use the Thursday CNN Republican debate to deliver KO blows to Cruz, Rubio, and Ohio Governor John Kasich, shots that could help him to widen his lead in most of the Super Tuesday Two states? There’s only one way to find out. Watch a full replay of the debate in the video below.
The twelfth Republican debate was held on the campus of University of Miami in Miami, Florida, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 5:30 p.m. Pacific, on Thursday, March 10.

Of the five states going to the polls on March 15, Trump appears in trouble only in Ohio, where native son Kasich has pulled into a virtual tie with the New York real estate mogul, pitchman, and TV entertainer, each with about 34 percent support according to the FiveThirtyEight polling average as of March 8.
In Florida, where Marco Rubio should have a home game, Trump continues to dominate the senator, with 40.2 percent per the FiveThirtyEight average to Rubio’s 24.7. Cruz lags well behind with 16.1 percent.
In the fifth state, Missouri, no significant poll has been conducted since last August.
