In order to make next week’s Fox Business Network debate, candidates must poll an average of 2.5% in the four most recent national polls. In the four most recent polls, Christie has polled at 2%, 3%, 3% and 1%, making his current average 2.25%. The polling deadline ended Wednesday at midnight.
Likewise, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and former New York Governor George Pataki have failed to poll at 1% in any of those polls, a requirement for the 6 PM undercard debate. However, CNN’s Dylan Byers points out that if Fox Business decides to use the lesser-known International Business Times poll, Jindal would be allowed to participate.
The full line-up of both debates will announced at 7 PM on FBN’s The Lou Dobbs Show.
