What If The X Factor Held a GOP Debate?

By

As we creep up on the dozenth GOP debate of this primary season, it is certainly starting to become tough to distinguish one debate from another, save the occasional pinata-bashing or mini-meltdown. But we at Intel began to wonder what it might be like if the candidates were being instantly judged on their responses, as opposed to just constantly interrupting each other and trying to steal extra time from moderators. Enter, The X Factor Republican Presidential Debate! No more pointed 30-second rebuttals, just gut reactions from former Idol judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul.  Check out our video to see what happens when the candidates try their best to impress.
