And they're off: Trump plus 9.

Washington Post: Fox News announces its final lineup for August 6 debate. Do watch Ohio's John Kasich. On a good night, Kasich can pick off every one of these guys. But even if he does, he will still be just the most beautiful maiden in a leper colony. With all these players, and some even waiting in the wings, this is the least exciting group (granted, purposely meandering Trump is great fun) of GOP hopefuls in my lifetime:

1. Businessman Donald Trump. Five-poll average: 23.4
2. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush: 12
3. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker: 10.2
4. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee: 6.6
5. Dr. Ben Carson: 5.8
6. Sen. Ted Cruz: 5.4
7. Sen. Marco Rubio: 5.4
8. Sen. Rand Paul: 4.8
9. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: 3.4
10. Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 3.2
