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%.
