I like Beto as a person more, but Ted is closer to common sense.

I don't like Ted Cruz but he is intelligent. As is Beto O'Rourke. Quality debate.
Grady Whitman (13 days ago)
If you watch his speeches from a few years before, he sounds completely differently now - he is doing his best version of Obama now.
Melania Trump (14 days ago)
are beto supporters still crying where you at beto supporters anti-american scum
Devo OS (11 days ago)
Anti-American? Trump bends over everyday to Vladimir Putin and you support that? it's obvious you're anti-American you wannabe russian troll. By the way Democrats won back the house overwhelmingly and in 2020 we'll win back the senate and the Presidency, and your stupid nationalist views will be an ugly memory
Hubris Logic Checker (15 days ago)
If only two people like this can come down and work together, changing things up, but doing it wisely. Do not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Itsuki And I thank God everyday that the Democrats Won back the house overwhelmingly and in 2020 we'll win back the senate and Presidency

Imagine the contrast between Beto vs Trump in a debate. Beto: smart, fit, good looking, inspirational, young, unifying. Trump: dumb, fat, ugly, hateful, old, divisive. Beto 2020!!!

hair vs hair... you decide
Sigfried (19 days ago)
28:39 Random aside. Hearing beta talk sounds like he's a white clone of Obama in both inflection and rhetoric.
Sigfried (19 days ago)
25:55 Ted's response is essentially "why you care about this now when you didn't before?"
Sigfried (19 days ago)
25:12 "Thoughts and prayers" that's how I describe gun control. Note also, that Ted never said in the classrooms, beta is conflating proposed solutions.
Sigfried (19 days ago)
23:04 That's great home defense rounds. Beta just described how good those are at stopping a threat. Rather have that than a round that won't stop my assailant dead in their tracks.

Immigration is much simpler than both sides think. Really we should just make it near impossible for illegal immigrants to get jobs and the fine for businesses too much to take the risk. On the other side do what Bill Clinton did and enforce the law to its full extent. Let the illegals self deport and the criminals face harsh consequences. We don’t need a wall more like a fence and we certainly do not need to be deporting people spending billions doing so.
mr. goodwill (23 days ago)
o'rourke should be president
Luis Hernandez (23 days ago)
So funny how the recording devices went of near the end of the debate when Cruz was speaking. Especially on a video that’s been up for like 2 months.
GHOST RIDER (24 days ago)
So beto o'rourke is Napoleon dynamite all grown up? 🤔😮
Douglas W (25 days ago)
Anything other than merit based legal immigration is garbage and you can gtfo with that chain migration crap.

Beto is similar to Kennedy brothers. His smile is similar to Robert Kennedy's smile. Great hunk. Good luck to him in his political carrier. Beto for President 2020!
California Girl (1 month ago)
Cruz was full of hot air. That's all. He also lied over and over again throughout his speech. Cruz would give a gun to every student in their lunch box.

Ask an Independent... Beto needs to understand firearms and freedoms and he will be our next President. We don't like anyone taking anything from us majority.
paco ramon (1 month ago)
Beto is the man.
WHY did any actual Texan want Beto to win? I truly am curious as to what about his ideas were good to you? All I see when I listen to him speak is someone attempting to appeal to 20 somethings (I’m a millennial myself) via all usual democratic/ socialist talking points. Watching the Betomaniac ad literally made me get second embarrassment to the point of turning it off because it SAID NOTHING about what Beto planned to do.
Why do blacks commit half of the murders in the country but are only 13% of the population?
Alex (1 month ago)
I can get the culture argument, as western pop culture is truly degenerate. But don't tell me that blacks are committing huge amounts of violent crime against other blacks as a result of being "enslaved and oppressed by whites for hundreds of years". This is completely refuted by the fact that the modern *ancestor* of a black slave in America is MUCH better off than the ancestor of a non-enslaved African - the American blacks have a much better standard of living in just about every way, compared to that of their African counterparts.
Ted Berrybasket (1 month ago)
Well... if we use the election as an indicator as to who won the debate, I think we can all agree now that it was Ted Cruz. O'Rourke will be back for sure... as a member of the black caucus.

The dreamers aren’t here illegally
WOW🤣 Ted sounds like a caveman speaking. “Legal good illegal bad”
Alex (1 month ago)
"Legal good illegal bad".. is a pretty valid statement. If this is so caveman, then how stupid are those who disagree with this? People still don't understand that Trump has never spoken against immigrants, only against illegals.
It really is that easy though Rebecca, illegal immigrants like every other illegal action is BAD. Legal immigration is a good thing, like most legal action. It may seem “caveman like” to you but it’s because it’s that simple of a thing.

so you're for illegal activity? good to know that you endorse criminals! btw, its the people on the left who are the NPCs who dont understand simple concepts. "orange man bad, border wall racist!"
Victor Villa (1 month ago)
I loved everything about Beto but he lost my vote with his gun views.
Alex (1 month ago)
How many home invasions are prevented as a result of gunowners? Compare that to the number of gun deaths. (Hint: Multiple sources have done criminal surveys, and they've found that a huge number of crimes are prevented because of fear of gunowners) On that note, I don't think Beto has extreme gun views - he just wants more secure background checks. He himself is a gunowner.
Victor Villa 103 shootings in America this year and you still want more guns?

'full of people of color in prisons' um...not really you have a diverse race there, but sure you have a disproportionate of inmates compared to their demography as a whole isn't that the other way around? why don't you ask why there's a substantially higher proportion of inmates, you can't just accuse this is racism, those are all convicted inmates. They broke laws, and proven in court unless you have a system with no court to defend you like in north korea then sure you might argue on that. But what you don't have that, those inside are those who are proven breaking the law. If you bring up racial issue, isn't the question should be directed to the race you spoke about? as an asian myself, im not surprised for african americans to dominate prisons much higher than their population proportion, there's a more thuggish culture there (not all, but comparably with other races, say whites or asians, there is) how do you turn this upside down and question the legal system itself?
Alex (1 month ago)
A huge part of the standard of Democrats, and in my opinion a huge flaw in their ideology, is the belief in *equality of results* as opposed to equality of *opportunity.* Often, they think that because there is a result that is not "just" in their minds, that there *must* be some form of systemic cause - they then create all sorts of soft "science" to back up their claim, instead of going the other way around (which is correct). You see this in affirmative action, for example. This is not always true, obviously - some unjust happenings really are caused systemically, but many are not, and are statistically obvious.

RED RUM (1 month ago)
Arispe Missy trump called their bluff and offered asylum for 2 million if you build the wall . But they backed out . And it’s the fake propping up by Hollywood and the media not to give a fair and balance view . CNN their is zero balance . Fox News is pretty liberal half the day . And the other half is opinion news not news . CNN is not news its opinion news and hate news now . Pretty sad . And liberals apparently like slave labor because that’s what Mexicans do pick our fruit . And it’s ok to pay them Slave labor . That’s why Americans don’t pick fruit . Because they will have to pay the minimum wage. And that’s not gonna happen when you have slave labor That is justified by liberal media and people who support slave labor.

All you betta supporters might as well call yourselves globalists. Beto's a globalist hack, at least Ted Cruz is an American. The truth is if you care about America you better vote Cruz, globalism is real and all you people who support it and beto are going to regret it when it comes to fruition. Look at the rest of the world morons.

Honestly got heated by the comments about Beto saying he is a “liar”? For those with Cruz i hope you know he is a liar and Ted and Trump were the ones who never supported ObamaCare and tried to repeal it and vote it off many times before??? Now Cruz and trump are saying they have always been for pre existing conditions and are for Obama Healthcare because they know elections are coming up?? Yeah Beto is the “liar” right? 😂😂
The media started spreading lies saying Cruz is ahead in these so- called polls, even before anyone voted. Those stupid polls don't matter because they're not accurate.

Grady Whitman (1 month ago)
Beto is charismatic but he supports the views of Latino anti-white extremists who want open borders, including a popular Mexican band called "los tigres del norte" ("the tigers of the north"), who advocate for the violent conquering of the southwestern United States. In fact, he chose them to perform at a pro-Mexico rally in South Texas just last week. View for yourself: https://miblogestublog.com/2018/10/18/beto-o-rourke-los-tigres-del-norte/

“Beto” is a phony, polished politician who is going to promise whatever free things he can give to struggling Texans to get elected. Taking money from hard working people and giving it to others is not a solution to people’s problems.
