CNN GOP Debate Lineup Revealed

The stage is set for the CNN Reagan Library Debate in California, with Carly Fiorina joining 10 other leading Republican presidential candidates at 8 p.m. ET.

Thursday marked the close of the two-month window for determining eligibility based on averages of national polls. The results were based on 14 polls including interviews with more than 6,000 potential Republican primary voters. The top 10 candidates overall - plus Fiorina, whose average support places her within the top 10 in polls conducted after the first debate held August 6 - have all qualified for the 8:00 p.m. debate next Wednesday in Simi Valley. The remaining five candidates will appear during an earlier debate beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The overall rankings based on an average of all qualifying polls for the 16 candidates who met the requirements for participation are:

1) Donald Trump: 23.929

2) Jeb Bush: 11.500

3) Scott Walker: 9.429

4) Ben Carson: 8.929

5) Ted Cruz: 6.286

6) Marco Rubio: 5.643

7) Mike Huckabee: 5.571

8) Rand Paul: 4.714

9) John Kasich: 3.214

10) Chris Christie: 3.143

11) Carly Fiorina: 2.229

12) Rick Perry: 1.814

13) Rick Santorum: 1.214

14) Bobby Jindal: 1.057

15) George Pataki: 0.529

16) Lindsey Graham: 0.471

The rules for inclusion were amended late last month so that any candidate who made the top 10 in an average of polls conducted after the Fox News/Facebook debate held on August 6 would also be included in the later debate. Fiorina is the only candidate to move from the bottom six to the top 10 in that post-debate average.

CNN's Anderson Cooper 360° Breaks News About Teens And Social Media In Provocative Two-Year Long Investigation

“CNN SPECIAL REPORT #BEING13: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF TEENS” AIRS OCTOBER 5TH AT 9PMET

 EXTENSIVE MULTI-PLATFORM PROGRAMMING ACROSS CNN’S DIGITAL AND SOCIAL PLATFORMS

Are tweens addicted to their phones? How does social media intensify the emotional roller coaster ride of Junior High? And most importantly, how is plugging in changing growing up? These are just some of the questions that inspired CNN’sgroundbreaking investigation and scientific pilot study, “#Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens.”

To discover the controversial world that middle school kids live in today, Anderson Cooper 360° focused its lens on the place where teens spend so much time together – social media. Hundreds of 8th graders across the country agreed, with the consent of their parents and schools, to allow child development experts to follow their posts on Instagram, twitter and Facebook over six months. 150,000 posts later, all of the good, bad and ugly that kids experience online was revealed in technicolor. Parents and teens also completed in-depth surveys about social media’s impact on families. In partnership with child psychologist Dr. Marion Underwood and sociologist Dr. Robert Faris, CNN’s “#Being13” is the first large scale study to analyze what kids say to each other on social media and why it matters so deeply to them.

Marc Lamont Hill on Fox News' narrative of Black Lives Matter: "...it's very different than the narrative they had when the Tea Party had people with racist signs and had Obama looking like a monkey."

Today on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Princeton University professor, Dr. Cornel West, and CNN political commentator, Marc Lamont Hill, joined host Brian Stelter.
