GOP Primary Forum and Debate

I do not see the Pope driving the GOP debates to the left and Trump says he will not throw the first punches. I don't know what to expect at this point, but I figure I will just go with it and see what happens.

An NBC/WSJ/Telemundo poll show 75% of Latinos have a negative view of Trump (sounds about the same as how Latinos viewed Mitt Romney). Of course, in the primaries what matters is how Trump does with GOP voters and Trump (while certainly not a Latino populist) could do better with Latino voters than people expect.  And the GOP Establishment is hoping they can get the GOP voters (who they despise as much as the Democrats hate their voters) to go with Jeb! What the GOP Establishment does not realize is they are getting to be about as popular with the GOP base as Trump is with Latinos.  

Here are the first two events:
