Donald Trump actually looks like a serious contender for the GOP presidential nomination

It’s just two days until the first debate of the Republican presidential primary season, when the top 10 Republican nominees will duke it out in a televised free-for-all.

Fox News, the host network of Thursday’s debate in Cleveland, will determine the 10 candidates on the stage based on an average of five most recent national polls. And a new Bloomberg poll has found that billionaire and unlikely frontrunner Donald Trump is dominating the pre-debate field.

A separate poll from CBS showed Trump with an even bigger lead, at 24%, with Bush trailing behind him at 13% and Walker at 10%.
