What Will Happen at the GOP Debate Without Trump

Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, announced that he will not attend the Republican Debate presented by Fox News on Thursday night. As Trump grabs headlines saying he won't participate, we have to wonder what will be interesting during this debate if Trump isn't there to stir things up. The show must go on and we expect other Republican nominees to jump on the chance to have this debate without Trump. Will it be the most civil debate all year? Will all the other candidates gang up on Trump since he won't be there to defend himself? Will the ratings drop?


We can't help but make some predictions on what we think might happen tomorrow night. Tune in and watch to see if you were right, or check back Friday on Sage to see everything that happened.

Ratings for Thursday's Republican debate will be the lowest this election season.: https://areyousage.com/prediction/ratings-for-thursdays-republican-debate-will-be-the-lowest-this-election-season-avly
