Study: Both Moderator and Obama Interrupted Romney More

Science!

President Obama cut off Mr. Romney in mid-sentence 36 times, while Romney cut off Obama 28 times. Moderator Candy Crowley cut off Romney 23 times, compared to the 15 times she cut off Obama.

Combining these figures, Romney was interrupted while speaking 59 times, or 37% more often than the 43 times Obama was interrupted.

Ms. Crowley interrupted the two candidates a total of 38 times, nearly twice as often as the 20 times they interrupted her (11 times by Romney and 9 times by Obama). By contrast, the candidates interrupted moderator Jim Lehrer 30 times during the first presidential debate, as an earlier CMPA/Chapman study reported.
