List republican presidential candidates debate 2015 today
A few hours from now, Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio will be staging the long-awaited and arguably the most colorful event of the year – the Republican Debate. Though 16 candidates entered the GOP race, only top 10 will be battling each other on stage with the remaining half-dozen being shoved off. These 6 undercards will still get their fair share of airtime where they will be debating on big issues that America needs to address.
Unfortunately, the battle of the 6 undercards is expected to get fewer viewership than the debate of the top 10. Fox News will be hosting both the primary and the undercard debates.
The top 10 GOP republican presidential candidates (according to national poll results) vying for party nomination include:
This will be the first Republican debate for 2016 Presidential election and will be cohosted by Social Media giant, Facebook.
Three hosts from Fox News will be shooting questions to these GOP candidates in an intense battle that will be lasting for 2 hours. Presence of Donald Trump will stir up the already heated environment, thanks to his media comments that kicked started controversies.

Quick info about the top 10 GOP candidates
Donald Trump: The real estate magnet of America, Donald Trump made derogatory comments targeting the Mexican immigrants. Despite his incendiary comments about the Latinos, Trump is leading the race. Apparently, the real estate mogul has become a brand and is displaying incredibly high odds of victory.
Jeb Bush: Former governor of Florida and brother of former President George W. Bush, Jeb Bush surprised everyone by becoming the second most favorite candidate for the Presidential run. Though not as high as that of Trump, Bush definitely has significant electoral odds in his favor.
Scott Walker: ‘I’m in’ – that was the tweet that Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker used to declare his run for Presidency. The way he dealt with rightwing issues has earned him quite some support, making him the third-favorite in the GOP race.
Mike Huckabee: Former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee ran for Presidential election in 2008 but lost. He was the favorite for 2012 elections but declined running but he is back for 2016. Famous for cutting down taxes and a renowned champ of fiscally conservative policies, he is known for Southern charms and ability to connect with people even at grass root level.
Ben Carson: Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon by profession, once became a heartthrob of conservative media circles because of his remarks on American healthcare system. Standing barely a few feet away from President Obama, Carson made some seriously blunt comments in 2013 at National Prayer Breakfast that made people think he was a conservative but he made it clear that he was just a man from outside the realm of politics. But now, he is a Republican candidate.
Ted Cruz: Senator Ted Cruz is the first ever Cuban American who is running for US Presidency. He was the first candidate announcing Republican nomination bid. However, questions were raised about Cruz being eligible for the run of not on the grounds of ‘natural born citizen’. Office of the Solicitor General gave him a green signal.
Marco Rubio: Junior US Senator hailing from Florida, announced his candidature on April 13, 2015 and is running his campaigns with the slogan: “A New American Century”. He was the 4th to officially announce Presidential run.
Rand Paul: The Kentucky Senator started off on a strong foot but soon went spiraling down. One of the primary reasons, as people say, is that he is not really into courting and stroking which is usually expected from powerful donors. No wonder, Paul ran short on campaign funds and lost a significant amount of popularity.
Chris Christie: New Jersey governor Chris Christie has jumped into the race with a clear leadership vision. He clearly stated that he doesn’t want to be loved but wants to be respected and this is what leaders should target.
John Kasich: The Ohio governor, John Kasich created an image where he portrayed himself as a Midwesterner with a common sense capable of fixing the broken Washington. Unlike the remaining 9 candidates, he refrained himself from attacking the current President during his campaign and presented a very optimistic oratory.
The question now is, who is going to make it to the much sought-after horizon of Presidency? We will get a glimpse of this tonight when the much anticipated debate starts.
