CNBC Republican Debate Criteria / Rules

Rules/Criteria For Upcoming CNBC Republican Debate Schedule

Twist in the tale! Change in rules might put the CNBC Republican Debate Candidates on a roller coaster ride. To put it down in simple terms, candidates will need to score at least 3% in any of the CNBC recognized polls to hold on to the prime time debate stage. While for the undercard debate, they would need to push up at least 1% support in these polls.

Barely making to the 8 pm ET candidates list, Rand Paul would be thanking the cable network a million times for the roundup provision as he just reaches the 3% mark. Other most certain candidates according to the latest CNBC Republican Debate Criteria are: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Chris Christie, and Mike Huckabee.

Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum would likely be heading for the 6 pm ET podium with Lindsey Graham and Jim Gilmore seeming to struggle with the 1% threshold.

All of the polls to be conducted by NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN, and Bloomberg will be released during the period: September 17, 2015 РOctober 21, 2015. The new CNBC Republican Debate Rules are expected not to lose focus of the Debate’s main discussion on job growth, taxes, technology, retirement, and national economy health.
