AS FOR THE rest, Fox News Channel has deemed them not worthy of prime time. They will be part of a late-afternoon program on Thursday, but the evening debate will only contain the Top Ten – as put together by an average of five recent presidential polls that really only show no one candidate has gained a huge share of support.
Not even Trump – who at best has only about one of every five Republicans, and no Democrats, thinking he deserves to be taken seriously.
Then again, I still think Trump will wind up running an independent campaign that will attract the kind of people who usually don’t bother to vote. Not enough to actually win a presidential election.
