John Kasich (Ohio). Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina then takes 3 percent, and Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.) rounds out the GOP’s top 10 with 2 percent.

Fox News conducted its latest poll under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research  and Shaw & Company Research. They surveyed 476 GOP primary voters Nov. 1-3 with a 4.5 percentage point margin of error.

The fourth GOP presidential debate is scheduled for Nov. 10 in Milwaukee and will air on the Fox Business Network.

Wednesday’s results are the last the channel is likely including in determining candidate ranking. It has previously said candidates must clear a 2.5 percent average for inclusion on the event’s main stage.

Christie risks missing the prime-time contest, with only 2 percent support nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.

Paul and Huckabee, meanwhile, are likely safe given they have 2.8 percent and 2.6 percent, respectively.

All three men’s inclusion, however, will be determined by which four samplings Fox Business Network selects as its qualifiers.

The network said it is announcing its official undercard and main stage lineups on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” Thursday evening, according to CNN Money.
