WHY LESS CANDIDATES
This time around there will be fewer candidates on stage. To earn a spot in the prime time debate each candidate had to average at least 2.5% in the last four national polls. Christie and Huckabee did not make the cut for the prime time debate. In order to be in the undercard debate candidates need to average at least a 1.0% in the polls; Lindsey Graham and George Pataki did not make the cut.
IS THERE A QUESTION FOCUS
