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.
