ABC News Is Killing the Undercard Debate

When ABC News hosts the February 6, 2016 debate, there will only be the "main stage" candidates with no undercard debate. This is the first debate not to feature a "happy hour" debate session of candidates who are not polling high enough to make the main stage.

To be frank: it's about time. If a candidate isn't polling in the top eight people this close to the primary elections, there's a pretty low chance they're actually going to be the nominee. It's time to buckle down and concentrate on the viable candidates.
