Republican words and Republican popularity

As a followup to my post on the correlation of the popularity of Democratic presidential debate, and the number of words they were allowed to utter, here are the results from last nights debates, using data in the New York Times interactive graph of the Republican candidates’ debate. As before, click on the headers to sort by that column:

The correlation between words and the amount of time they spoke is 97%; the correlation between the Zogby poll and the amount of time they spoke was 84%. There’s a 100% correlation between rank in the polls and rank in the time spent talking.
