This meta question is based on "Why are the candidates allowed to speak after their two minutes runs out?"
The text of the question is:
In most major American debates, the candidates get a fixed amount of time to make their points. In theory, when the clock runs out they're finished. In practice, Donald Trump talks over everybody. Why don't they just shut off the microphone when it's not someone's turn to speak?
This question attracted some down votes (and close votes). At least one reason that was apparent in the comments was that the question was viewed as being a rant.
Is this a kind of question that should be accepted on politics.SE? What about this question makes it a good or bad fit?
