Trump To Take Center Stage

by  |  published on August 5, 2015

Fox News has announced the line-up for the prime-time Republican presidential debate this Thursday, and here’s who qualified:

Real estate magnate Donald Trump; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls. Trump as expected made the cut, as did Bush and Walker, who have each posted strong numbers in recent surveys.

The drama, rather, was at the edge of the top 10. Christie and Kasich, who were hovering by that edge in recent polling, were able to qualify.

  • TRUMP/CRUZ 2016 or CRUZ/? 2016! None of the others are worth looking at, especially Jeb and Graham.

  • KentS

    I am disappointed Carly Fiorina didn’t get picked for this. I believe she would have done well; her contributions to the debate bringing a unique conservative female perspective that, I believe, would have resonated with all female citizens; not just the conservative ones.

      Would think President Trump would ask her to accept appointment as Secretary of Commerce. She would be great in that job.

  • John Gasper

    Boy with jackoffs like BUSH, RUBIO, CARSON, HUCKABEE, CHRISTIE an KASICH The Donald hopefully can find someone to carry on an intelligent discussion against!!

  • Brad Bryant

    Sorry that Perry lost to Kasich.

    • Robert

      Both are career Politicians, just what we need more of. NOT. VOTE TRUMP

    Christie is nothing more than a obama lap dog that barks when obama tells him to and is nothing more that a RHINO
