In the first debate following a Trump dominated Super Tuesday, Western New Yorker's are still wondering what's next in this action packed election season.

On the heels of several unfavorable comments made by 2012 presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, Donald Trump remained a topic of conversation among many watching tonight's event.

Despite competition from a Sabres game, patrons at Founding Father's did tune in.

Several Western New Yorkers I spoke with said they still want to hear more from the remaining candidates, specifically Trump. 

But many agree, the 2016 election season is proving more polarizing and exciting than in years past.

“I just think it’s been because everyone is completely so polarized and just in opposite land based upon their own specialized interest created by Facebook,” Emily McClellan told 7 Eyewitness News.

“That’s kind of helping it make people live in the kind of bubble that make things like Donald Trump happen and make it difficult for election season go off without it being a contentious debate.”
