Who Will Be In The Republican Debate August 6th?

July 28, 2015

While it is certain which eight candidates will be on the debate stage next Thursday for the first presidential debate featuring the Republicans what is far from clear is who will round out the ones to stand on the stage.

It is quite obvious from all the polling that Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson will make the cut.

But then things get cloudy.  And here is why.

FAUX News, which is hosting the debate says that they will allow candidates on the stage based on the average of the five most recent national polls. But FAUX News isn’t saying which polls they will use to calculate their average.

While it not clear who rounds out  the ten it is not out of bounds to say who will not be there to debate.   They are Carly Fiorina, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham,  Each have less than 1 percent support.   Then there is Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal who also will sit on the bench.

So that leaves Chris Christie, Rick Perry, and John Kasich.   One of them will not make the cut.

    You belong to a party that has a clown car being driven by Trump—the first Chinese fire drill–they all are aiming to shove him into the trunk.

    It you want to see lack of diversity consider the opening line to the GOP National Convention.

    “Nice to see so many whites faces here tonight.’

    America is about to elect its first woman and your party can not even find a way to get the only woman candidate you have onto the debate stage!

    Interesting there will be white, Latino and African Americans on the debate stage for the GOP. When the DNC gets around to theirs it will be an old WHITE women, an older WHITE guy and probably another WHITE guy. Which party truly embraces diversity?
