Bobby Jindal failed to make the cut for Fox News’ prime-time first Republican presidential debate on Thursday with celebrity real estate mogul Donald Trump leading the 10 top polling candidates.

Besides Mr. Trump, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, author and neurosurgeon Ben Carson and conservative firebrand Cuban American Texas Senator Ted Cruz made the top six. Finishing thirteenth, Louisiana Governor Jindal, 44, was relegated to an earlier forum with the six other candidates lowest in Fox’s selection of polls.
