To qualify for the primetime debate, candidates must place in the top six spots nationally in an average of the five most recent national polls, or place within the top five in Iowa or New Hampshire in an average of the five most recent Iowa or New Hampshire polls recognized by Fox News. To qualify for the early debate, candidates must register at least one-percent in one of the five most recent national polls recognized by Fox News. Polling must be conducted by major nationally and state recognized organizations that use standard methodological techniques (live interviewers, include both landlines and cellphones, and employ either random digit-dial or registration-based sampling methodologies).
FNC said this afternoon it will look at polls up until those released on Tuesday.
