Washington (CNN) CNN is amending the criteria for its Republican presidential debate on September 16, possibly opening the door for Carly Fiorina to join the other top-tier candidates on the stage.
The cause: a lack of national public polling following the August 6 debate has so far provided only three new polls to determine the lineup for the Reagan Presidential Debate, according to a CNN statement.
As a result, CNN reevaluated its criteria and decided to add a provision that better reflects the state of the race since the first Republican presidential debate in August, the network announced Tuesday.
Now, any candidate who ranks in the top 10 in polling between August 6 and September 10 will be included.
The adjustment may result in additional candidates joining the top-tier debate, but the final podium placements will not be known until the eligibility window closes on September 10.

You would think that as interesting as this race has become, polling places would be putting out polls left and right.
Good. I want to hear more from Fiorina.
Interesting that the media have pretty much stopped releasing polls that confirm Trump’s rise.
As long as the fat one and the girly one are left out - I’m good.
Everybody is paying for Iowa polls instead of national. It seems like we’re getting a new Iowa poll every 20 minutes.
I believe Carly is Team Jeb.
I wouldn’t mind a Cruz/Fiorina ticket.
She is funded by Univision
And has had a close relationship with Karl Rove
Fiorina? She is a grade-A LOSER.
the absence of polls is a corollary to keeping good news for trump and horrendous news for jeb off the radar.
BTW veritas now has a Hillary staffer taking money video. so Obama has cleared the way for Biden.
Post of the thread.
Ah....so now we get to the crux of this whole Fiorina problem. The problem is NOT that CNN wanted to use ancient polling data from July. Rather, the problem is that polling data dried up unexpectedly! Hence, the polls they were planning to use haven't been refreshed and they are stuck with July polls. Gee, I can't imagine why the polls would have dried up..../sarc
“Good. I want to hear more from Fiorina”.
After she sided with Hillary Clinton saying they “knew exactly what Trump was talking about” during the Bloody Megyn affair, I would never vote for this fake and fraud. She’s also supported the Clinton Foundation and I mean recently.
worst CEO of all time.
RINO for a California race.
just a bossy nag.
The RNC is allowing CNN to moderate why?
Falstaff, of course, is Trump. Carson is the "nice Trump." Fiorina is the "smart Trump." Cruz is the "principled Trump." I know plenty of people who want everything Trump offers, but don't want it to be him offering it. Their social gatherings would be so much easier if they could back the Black Trump or the Smart Trump.
CNN might let Fiorina in.
Works for me!
(Either that or what do you think of Cruz/Carson? )
