Amid Falling Poll Numbers, Chris Christie at Risk of Missing Next Debate

Chris ChristieNew Jersey Governor and presidential candidate Chris Christie is at risk of missing the next Republican debate after his polling numbers fell below a certain percentage.

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.
