Republican Debate Format
Fox news announced this week that they would broadcast the debates, but only for the top 10 candidates, as determined by the polls. The problem with this is that the polls are notoriously inaccurate. So, today they announced that they would broadcast two separate debates, one for the top ten and a second for the rest, sort of varsity and junior varsity debates. Others have suggested that one big debate be held with all candidates but each would be limited to the number of words they can speak. Doesn't the RNC have any say in this? Are they going to let Fox News determine which candidates shall advance and which shall fall by the wayside? Seems like a poor way to run a campaign for election to the highest post in the land, maybe the world. What do you think?
