Friday Poll: Debating the GOP Debates

A Friday poll two-fer this week.

We’re keeping it simple this Friday with a two-fer on the GOP debates. After more than a week spent arguing over debate format, largely on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, we’re curious to see what you think.

Is Fox News right in separating the candidates into two different time slots, one at 5:00 p.m. and one at 9:00 p.m.? Would putting all the candidates on the same stage have been too distracting, or would it have been more fair?

And what of relying on national polls to determine who makes it to the primetime debate? Is this the only real way to determine standing at this point, or are early polls too unreliable to have any real meaning?
