Political debates between candidates are by far one of the most important tools used during presidential races. It gives candidates a large platform to base and debate their views on policy and reform. It also gives citizens a very wide view of their potential futures. Senator Bernie Sanders has officially entered the 2016 presidential race. The Independent serving to the great state of Vermont has expressed to his opponents that more political debates should be scheduled sooner rather than later. The debates are usually held during the fall, which is considered official debate season. However, Bernie has noted that with so many candidates on the ballot, the only way to ensure that their platform is well communicated is to have the appropriate number of debates. Fox News is currently scheduled to host the very first debate for this presidential season. It will air 6 months from now and focus on debates among the Republican candidates. As of lately, there are 16 Republican candidates. The news company has stated that only 10 candidates will be allowed to date. They will leave it up to the American people to vote on their 10 most applicable candidates. Bernie has used this notion to justify why there should be more debates on the campaign roster.
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has angered many conservatives in recent weeks as he continued to make a mark on the GOP Presidential race even with his YouTube videos. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was so angered by Paul’s insistence that haws in the republican party were to blame for the rise of the Islamic State that he declared him unfit to be President. Rare is now reporting Fox News has been leaving PAUL’s figures out of its reports of recent weeks as his controversial comments have begun to cause problems for those backing the GOP in the 2016 election.
The conservative news channel has recently been reporting on the positions of many who have already declared or are expected to declare for the GOP nomination in relation to themselves and Democratic favorite Hilary Clinton. Paul was not mentioned in the latest poll results published, despite polling six percent of the vote and finishing above the Fox News reported five percent polled by Donald Trump. The same poll also questioned which candidates would provide the best challenge to Clinton and saw Paul and Senator Ted Cruz come out on top. This result was also ignored by Fox News who also failed to include Paul in an in house poll over which GOP candidates would provide the best competition for former Secretary of State Clinton in an upcoming election.
