Christie was able to snare a YouTube moment by telling Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina that the average voter doesn't care about their personal achievements and bickering.

He was also able to deliver some well-regarded answers on Sept. 11 and entitlements.

Despite some long quiet periods in the three-hour debate broadcast on CNN from Reagan Library, he ended up getting the fifth most airtime of any candidate.
