What time is CBS News Republican debate tonight: 6th debate Start time, TV Schedule, Donald Trump leading polls
While Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary this past week, this doesnâ€™t mean he is any closer to bagging the GOP nomination. He is as close to winning the Republican nomination as his Democratic rival Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is from bagging the Democratic nomination.
Despite Sanders and Trump winning the New Hampshire primary with a huge margin, none of the two seem to be close to getting the nomination. While Trump lost the Iowa caucuses, Sanders tied with the former secretary of state giving far better fight to Hillary Clinton than anyone thought it to be possible.
In the meantime Donald Trump is working overtime to keep the momentum going. While he might have skipped Fox News debate recently, he is well aware of the role that such debates play in helping people make their minds about their preference. The next GOP presidential debate is set for Saturday, February 13 in Greenville, South Carolina. The debate that will air on CBS and will likely feature six candidates and the debate will be certainly attended by the reality czar.
Despite his win in New Hampshire, Donald Trump couldnâ€™t knock out his rivals. To be true several hopefuls including Jeb Bush have strengthened their claims to be the Republican establishmentâ€™s choice as far as presidential nomination is concerned.
There are several hopefulsâ€™ who have a confirmed seat in the CBS debate. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Jeb Bush have already qualified by virtue of their finishes in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. Ben Carson has a chance to qualify because of his standing in national and South Carolina polling averages. (To qualify, candidates must meet one of the following criteria: A top 5 finish in the New Hampshire primary; a top 3 finish in the Iowa caucus; or a top 5 spot in an average of national and South Carolina polls conducted between January 15 and February 12.)
