After the last two debates, my expectations are somewhat muted for this debate... :tinfoil

Quote:
CNBC, Republicans finalize debate format

(CNN)CNBC, the Republican National Committee and the GOP presidential campaigns have agreed to criteria for the October 28 primary debate in Boulder, Colorado.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted that the parties have agreed to the following criteria: a two-hour debate, including commercials; a 30-second closing statement for each candidate; and a single, open-ended question at the beginning of the debate that each candidate will have the opportunity to answer.

The new criteria satisfies several of the campaigns' demands for opening and closing statements, as well a 120-minute cap on the debate time.

Thanks, Peter, for sharing this. I think a shorter debate may be good as long as Gov. Huckabee gets a fair share of the time to answer the questions. Praying it will be much more positive for him this time.

Was just going to chime in on this topic and here there's already a thread for it! :)

One possibly good thing with this debates criteria of who gets to participate is that a candidate has to be polling at 3% or more to be included. Right now, according to RCP, Huck is at 3.2% and Paul, Christie and Kasich are all below the 3% threshold. Having only 7 candidates on stage and Huck being one of them will 1.) give him more time to talk, and 2.) give him legitimacy with voters who only pay attention when they watch debates. Huck just needs to keep polling at 3% or higher in the next few polls.

I hope you are right, goalieman. I heard somewhere that 3% means you just need to be polling at 2,5% or higher, since your average will be rounded up to 3%...

I do like the fact that since Huck is now not an unknown commodity, like he was 8 years ago, a Huckaboom can happen at ANY moment. The fuel is there, it just needs a spark: An excellent debate performance, for example.

If they go with 2.5% or higher, Paul would make at the moment but Christie and Kasich would miss the cut. Two new polls out today by CNN and Monmouth with Huck at 5% and 4% respectively. In fact, Huck is ahead of the much ballyhooed Fiorina and Cruz in the CNN poll!! :shock:

These polls are ridiculous(ly inaccurate). In polls conducted over the same time period, Rubio places 13% in one poll and 6% in another, Cruz 10% in one, 4% in another...

Bush is 5% in one and Huck is 4% in the same poll (Monmouth) - are there pundits asking for Bush to drop out?

Well, I puntificate and I say Bush should drop out! :lol:

Gallop isn't even polling the primaries anymore due to how difficult it is to get an accurate read on things. Polls are being used more to shape how people think than informing them of anything.
