EXTRA: The Top Ten

Real estate developer Donald Trump.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.


Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

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.
