  • Neil Cavuto: Moderating Master
    s pretty much all that NJM How will your approach for preparing for this debate differ from your approach to the debate in November NC The difference this time is that the debate isn t entirely about business issues it s open ended whatever is happening out there from terror and national security to yes these crazy markets and whether China s implosion represents more than just an economic threat There s also gun control and crime all are fair game here NJM Is there a candidate you most identify with NC At the risk of sounding a bit Yankee Doodle Dandy all the candidates bring something uniquely American to the table Regardless of your political point of you there s something remarkable about the emergence of a Marco Rubio the son of Cuban immigrants seeking asylum in this country and a Ted Cruz and his own family s rag to riches story Then there s Donald Trump and his shattering the conventional political mold and proving much more than a fleeting outside the box fancy If you think about it outside or certainly outside the mainstream candidates in the Republican party account for nearly three out of four polled support I include in that group Trump and Cruz and even Ben Carson There s no shortage of diversity economic and otherwise in this bunch Recommended Reading Court Street School Fortified Students for Anything NJM Is there an internal sense at FOX of who will get the nomination NC None NJM Gov Chris Christie appears to be on the rise As a New Jersey resident do you think his time as governor will help or hurt him in the race NC Way too early to tell but the one thing I ll say about Gov Christie is that he is relentless he campaigned the exact same no holds barred way when he was running for Governor against equally daunting odds He won then let s just say I wouldn t cavalierly dismiss him now NJM Certain candidates seem to receive more media attention than others How will you accommodate candidates who have not had as much face time with voters NC I know we try very hard to be fair to all and provide the same debate time or as close as we can for all Some candidates just engender more controversy and give and take than others That s the nature of the beast I guess Donald Trump will say something that infuriates another candidate then that candidate responds then Trump responds to that response I know the drill We all do We just try very hard to keep all the candidates in line and make sure those candidates who don t trigger quite the heated response Ben Carson comes to mind get their say It can t be exact but it s like I try to be with my two sons fair and equitable as is humanly possible NJM CNBC was accused of using gotcha questions in the
