CNBC Sets 3 Percent Polling Floor for Main GOP Debate Stage; Rand on the Edge

CNBC has set a floor of an average of 3 percent in polls conducted by NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN and Bloomberg released in the five weeks before the debate -- between Sept. 17 and Oct. 21 -- to determine who participates in  the primetime, 8p.m. EDT GOP debate, being held in Boulder, Colo. on Oct. 28.

A 2.5 percent average will be rounded up to 3 percent. All other candidates with at least a 1 percent average will be invited to the undercard debate.

According to the most recent polling averages, as things stand now, the main debate stage would feature Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul, whose 2.75 average would be rounded up to 3.
